About Us

Profile

Our Director is Justin Fellows, a quantity surveyor undertaking cost analysis, MCIOB, MCIARB, PG Dip Construction Law & Arbitration, Kings with over 20 years of industry QS experience, and over 30 years in the wider construction industry. Justin has specialised in dispute resolution, particularly in the area of loss and expense. Justin’s wide experience of both major and minor projects includes rail, water, roads, and petrochemical and includes commercial and public works, spanning small cost projects to multi-million pound builds.

In 2014 Justin made a push to look for more efficient, insightful and meaningful ways to deliver his analysis to industry clients wishing to move away from traditional book-keeping tools. This resulted in finding better solutions to capture, extract, and use data to provide insightful analysis tailored specifically for the construction industry. Justin’s aim is to show the benefits of using state-of-the-art business intelligence and visualisation software to leaders in the construction industry. He is a passionate advocate of the adoption of new technology to reveal better, and more profitable ways of working.

How it works

  • Image Icon

    Accurate Information

    The data you generate is more than simply your annual and interim accounts – it will probably include timesheets, delivery dockets and on-site wastage, sub-contractor progress, plant performance and daily site progress. All these factors can affect your project’s profitability. Understanding what data to capture and why is a key part of making better decisions. We can advise on what, why and how data should be captured, and best practice in its storage and interpretation.

    Why we do it

    We are passionate about the industry, to make it better for the people who work within and rely upon it for livelihoods. Many companies have used our services for claims and dispute resolution, and this can be an expensive, profit-draining process. Over the years we’ve come to realise that many of these issues can be avoided if managers could easily visualise their project’s progress and identify problems as they happen. We want to give you the tools to help you maximise your company’s potential and spot problems as they happen and identify and mitigate the risks to your future projects.

    Custom Reporting

    We provide a bespoke service that allows rapid exploration of the large quantities of data generated by the modern construction project. This cost/benefit analysis can be securely hosted for appraisal by all relevant stakeholders and can – subject to your permissions - allow them to collaborate, iterate and test their ideas, offering significant benefit over other ways of working.

    Our philosophy

    We are passionate advocates for the adoption of new technology to reveal better and more profitable ways of working in the construction industry. The most important thing for your business is to look to cut unnecessary costs and improve practices; the information your business produces on a daily basis can be used to provide near instant insights. But possessing data is no good if you cannot analyse it, and the best analytics are no good if you haven’t captured the data. Helping you to capture the data required and develop the tools and visualisations your company requires is our goal.

    Training

    Having reviewed the business and implemented any suitable software tools, we can arrange for either in-house or classroom training tailored to meet the needs of your company. This will include training in the software tools so that you gain the maximum benefit from their implementation. Our training goal is for you to maximise the return on your investment and for your company to become self-serving analytics. Our aim is for you and your company to develop an evidence led cycle of efficiency gains and build upon your success and skills.

    Our experience

    With over 32 years in the construction industry, 23 of these as a quantity surveyor dealing with claims analysis, we understand what information is important and what your business needs to capture. But it’s not just about having the information ready for bringing or defending construction claims, it’s also about using it to make informed daily decisions. Using the data your company routinely produces you can identify problems as they occur, help prevent unnecessary costs, and ensure that unproductive processes do not simply reoccur on the next project.

Custom Reporting

We can provide custom reporting. We also provide a bespoke service that allows rapid exploration of the large quantities of data generated by the modern construction project. This cost/benefit analysis can be securely hosted for appraisal by all relevant stakeholders and can – subject to your permissions - allow them to collaborate, iterate and test their ideas, offering significant benefit over other ways of working.

Integrate your data from disparate systems into comprehensive, insightful reports. We develop tools that enable rich, meaningful and engaging analysis of your business data that are easily understood by your company’s managers and staff. Unlike more traditional software tools used in our industry, these can be automatically updated with data as, and when, it becomes available. They also allow the display of your data in easily interpreted and customisable visual form. Furthermore, any decisions you may wish to make can be tested using models, and their likely effect on profitability or working practices assessed. We are frequently able to unearth patterns and insights from the data that remain hidden when using the more traditional management tools and techniques used in construction.
