WHAT WE DO

Socius Projects was established in 2014 to help clients navigate a construction project from the initial budget and design phases through to delivery.

We strongly believe that collaboration is key to the success of any Project. Along with our core Project Management and Quantity Surveying services, we have a strong practical background in construction, so we understand the challenges that every level has from the Client and design team to the Principal Contractor and trades on the ground.

Using this knowledge and experience we feel we are able to effectively lead the overall team, with a strong teamwork ethos, to producing the best result for each party to create the desired overall product. Although we are established within the leisure and hospitality sectors, we aim to further expand our current experience to office, retail and new build in order to satisfy the needs of our increasingly diverse Client base.
