Kitwe can provide Construction Companies, Subcontractors or Quantity Surveyors with accurate cost estimates from architects’ or engineers’ drawings. We can provide a full ‘take-off’ service or ‘Builders Quantities’ together with accurate pricing.
We are an experienced team led by Ken Dalton(FRICS) with over forty years experience in quantity surveying and estimating and can provide a quality service with accurate quantities and prices to enable builders , architects, quantity surveyors and clients to move forward with cost certainty.
From our own experiences in the past we know that construction companies’ estimating departments and professional quantity surveying practices are often overloaded at peak times and have to turn work away or not give it their best attention. We can act as a ‘pressure release valve’ to take on some of your work at peak pressure times.

Using our knowledge and experience we know where you can cut costs, without losing the architectural merit of a design.
