About Us

CS2’s life began in Northampton in 1999, as a small team of specialist building and quantity surveyors. Leaving a very large multi-disciplinary practice we shared a passion: To deliver the most innovative and customer focused surveying and consultancy services to our clients.

A growing team of over 60 experts, based in Northampton, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Milton Keynes and London, allowed us to establish an unrivalled reputation for delivering expert advice that is both practical and commercially focused.

Our services include construction consultancy, building surveying, dilapidations and cost consultancy, covering a range of sectors – from retail and industrial, to residential and defence. Because we’re independent, clients can rely on complete discretion, integrity and impartiality.

Everything we do is underpinned by Integrated Thinking™; our own unique approach, working in partnership with clients to deliver tailored targeted long-term solutions.

Integrated Thinking™

Integrated Thinking™ is at the core of everything we do. Passion, partnership and performance drive us and ensure we deliver the best outcomes for our clients – first time, every time.


This is where it all starts, and it’s what runs through the heart of CS2. Our passion is demonstrated through our dedication to our clients and the projects we take on. The team have the desire and drive to provide a remarkable service to EVERY client, EVERY time. In order to find the best solutions for you we believe it is extremely important to maintain a positive and enthusiastic attitude; this means that you can be confident of the best service and solutions for your business. 


Our teams at CS2 don’t just wait to be instructed, they take the initiative. That means establishing a productive working partnership with all our clients from day one. Assigning a dedicated team to each client enables you to get a personalised service and enables us to gain a deeper understanding of your business. 


By getting to know your business and partnering you with a dedicated team of CS2 experts, we can put in place a long-term, cost-efficient strategic solution tailored to meet your commercial objectives.



Throughout our history we have worked on a broad and exciting range of projects across the UK, it is also what encourages our clients and staff to stay with us a long time. Many of our employees have been working within CS2 from the beginning and there are others who started their careers with us. This enables us to offer consistency to our clients, providing them with more then just a service provider but a trusted advisor.

CS2 was formed in Northampton 1999 by a small team of building surveyors who had a vision to deliver an unrivaled and innovative service to clients.

Since then, the firm has grown at a rapid pace and now consists of a network of six offices across the UK, including Birmingham, Bristol, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes and Northampton. With over 60 members of staff, CS2 are a leading commercial building and cost consultancy practice to the property and construction industry.

We have been advising investors, developers, occupiers and owners since inception and can therefore offer you a strong track record in commercial property and construction consultancy.
