After months of late nights and early mornings Affinity Building Consultants is now live and this is the first post ever to feature on the site.
This site will focus on the services offered by Affinity which will primarily be Quantity Surveying and drone services. If you would like to know more about our UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) services head over to UAV Services or check out this blog post discussing how drones can be used in the construction industry.
This post is our first and we wanted to use this opportunity to introduce Affinity Build Consultants and offer some information about its founder.
My name is Dan and I have been working in the Construction Industry since the late 90's in one way or another.
I began by painting walls on the weekends and after deciding that construction was the industry I wanted to be in I studied at college where I took a Construction and Civil Engineering BTEC National Diploma course. After a few years of study and many job applications I eventually found work as junior Quantity Surveyor. Having spent a few years in this role I moved on to estimating to give myself a solid backbone and a wider range of experience. The experience gained as an estimator has proved to be valuable but seeing projects come together on site was always my passion so with that thought, I returned to surveying. I then spent several years with an Essex based contractor as a QS where the bulk of my experience was gained. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a QS but as an inquisitive soul I decided to explore a role as director of a construction company which was offered to me by a local builder. Their plan was to expand from their thriving client base and diversify into the public sector, tendering market. We re-branded the company and secured several accreditation's while chasing new leads. This role was challenging and it is rewarding to see the company doing well.
This leads me to this point.
Now that I have been working in the industry for some years I decided that I would take the plunge and set up my own business offering Quantity Surveying and Estimating Services for my clients. I work for construction companies and individuals producing cost estimates and fulfilling their procurement needs on their projects.
