What people say about us...
"I have engaged VOLOCO on a variety of projects to provide a wide range of services. These include tender pricing, contractual negotiations, valuing of variations, dispute resolution and general contractual guidance.
Working with Ben has been an excellent experience, he has a calm and professional approach and he sincerely cares about his clients. I have found him to be a very useful and dependable resource that consistently delivers what is required.
This has been invaluable in many of our contracts and has meant we have been able to avoid the cost of employing an in-house QS. I would highly recommend VOLOCO to other Building Contractors that are in need of professional support."
Chris Egan, Managing Director, Hexagon Construction Ltd

"George’s thorough and systematic approach to design management provided a valuable contribution to the project. All aspects of the design were comprehensively considered and explained to the client and other members of the delivery team.
On completion of the building everyone involved knew exactly what was being provided and were delighted with the result. George’s contribution throughout played a key part in this very successful outcome."
