Hello, I’m Neil Boothroyd

RICS accredited Evaluative and Facilitative Mediator, Adjudicator and Arbitrator, Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. As you’ve visited my website, I’m presupposing that you’re wanting to be ahead of the game or alternatively. you’ve found yourself in a predicament and would like my help?

Either way, I can provide an essential service for you or your company. Using my services before your project commences provides a robust assessment of the project ahead and will make sure you get setup efficiently and effectively from the start which will save you time and money in the long run.

Equally, if you’re already mid-way into your project, I can still help you to achieve the best results possible. With my professional and conscientious intervention, I will advise on the necessary steps required to enhance or preserve your value recovery and minimise cost.

The way of the world means that unfortunately, claims arise on a high proportion of construction projects. How they are managed can be the difference between appropriate resolution or escalation into a dispute. My collaborative approach to contract administration promotes best practice and dispute avoidance behaviours. I can advise on contract selection and provide contract administration services by working with all parties on a construction project to promote openness, cost efficiency and effective risk management.  I have experience with all of the standard construction contracts including JCT, NEC, PPC, FIDIC, FAC and TPC forms.

Resolution of disputes requires a credible objective analysis of contractual responsibility, entitlement and quantum. I am an expert in quantity surveying, cost control, analysis and audit, value management, risk management and contract management and can quickly get to grips with the nature and extent of issues you’re facing.

I can also provide Expert Witness services as an Advisor, Single Joint Expert, Shadow Expert and/or Own Party Expert compliant with CPR Part 35.
