Two of Derby’s long established Chartered quantity surveyors, project managers and building surveyors have joined forces.
Founded in the 1960s and 1970s, the merger of Armsons and Barlow & Associates under the banner of ‘Armsons Barlow’ will create a regional market leader for the property and construction industry.
Operating throughout the UK, the Armsons Barlow project management and quantity surveying team aims to protect their client’s position in the costing, procurement and delivery of construction and refurbishment projects. This is supported by its building surveyors, providing pre-acquisition surveys and advice for purchasers, landlords and tenants, schedules of condition, dilapidation claims and investigation of defects.
The company’s experience includes projects in the industrial, commercial, infrastructure, residential, healthcare, sports and leisure, retail, education and heritage sectors.
Commenting on the merger, Stephen Fernie, director of Armsons, said:
“Over the past five decades Armsons has established a reputation as one of the region’s leading firms of project managers, construction cost consultants and building surveyors. We share the same values as Barlow & Associates in our commitment to provide our public and private sector clients with a first-class personalised professional service.
“Both businesses have been involved in significant regeneration projects and developments across the Midlands. Joining forces will enable us to build on the success and reputations of both firms and expand our presence across the Midlands and beyond.”
Chris Mills, director of Barlow & Associates, added:
“The merger brings together the considerable experience and expertise of two long-established firms. The combined experience and additional resources will enable the new company to continue to provide first class services in what is an increasingly demanding industry.”
Armsons Barlow are located at 7 Vernon Street, Derby, with Armsons having relocated from their base at St Matthew's House in Darley Abbey.
