Censeo Consulting

Providing expert Estimating and Cost Planning Services to the Construction Industry


About Us

Censeo Consulting Limited is a Charted Building Consultancy.

We have provided an expert building Estimating and Cost Planning service to the construction industry since 2005.

We predominantly work for National and Regional building contractors and Developers on projects across a broad range of sectors, ranging in value from £1 Million to £75 Million

We originate from a Design & Build main contractor background and have developed a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise which enables us to provide the best true nett cost, whilst also highlighting the risk and opportunity inherent in any tender.

We help our Clients to win work which means that they come back to us on a repeat business basis.

Through our sister company Cen QS Consulting, we can provide BOQ Measurement on either a standalone basis, or as part of a combined one stop BOQ Prep & Estimating Service.



Sectors we have worked in

Since 2005 we have worked on hundreds of Tenders and Cost Plans for projects worth billions of pounds across most construction sectors.

Below is just a small example of the type of work that we have carried out.
In addition to the sample projects shown, we’ve also worked on hospital schemes, airport buildings, railway stations, motorway service stations, car showrooms and multi-storey car parks to list but a few.

If you can build it, we’ve probably priced it!

The list of Clients that we’ve worked for includes main contractors such as Volker Fitzpatrick, Engie, Mace, Bovis, Buckingham Group, Balfour Beatty, McLaren, Wilmott Dixon, Morgan Sindall, Red Construction, Stepnell, Alcema, Vinci, and John Sisk

Services we provide


Estimating & Tendering

We are experienced Building Estimators from a main contractor background. We work as an integral member of your team. If required we are happy to lead and manage the tender process.

We offer our Clients the flexibility to increase their tendering capacity when needed, or to buy in our experience and expertise for a must win project.

We utilise our expert knowledge, experience and skillset to produce the best possible true net cost whilst highlighting the risk and opportunity inherent in the tender.

We will review the design and put forward Value Engineering solutions to help reduce costs. Where appropriate we will utilise our network of specialist subcontractors to develop and price value engineered and alternative solutions.

We utilise Conquest Q Series as an Estimating tool which means that we can produce Excel quote comparison reports and BOQ’s for your QS team.

Cost Planning

As experienced Estimators we have the skills and knowledge required to produce realistic Feasibility Budgets and Cost Plans from the concept stage of a project, through to the commencement of construction on site.
Our experience of Design & Build projects gives us the ability to identify the gaps and risk inherent in the level of design information that is typically available in the early design stages. These are identified in both the measure and pricing of the budget or cost plan.

The single stage competitive tenders that we are continually working on generate current market tested rates that are used in the production of Feasibility Budgets and Cost Plans. This data also enables us to benchmark the project cost against tenders that we have priced in the current market.
We can develop and update our costs as the level of design information develops, allowing more detailed and accurate costs to be generated as the design progresses through the RIBA stages.
