We are the leading and largest Cost Consultancy and Project Management practice in the Channel Islands with eight RICS qualified Quantity Surveyors.

Colin Smith Partnership has been providing professional quantity surveying, project management and cost consultancy services in the Channel Islands for over 60 years.

Based in Jersey we work in all the Islands, the UK mainland and Ireland and through our associated UK practices, can offer a worldwide built asset consultancy service.

Acting as trusted advisors to Clients, we assist in planning and executing strategies that optimise the construction, operation, use, ownership and maintenance of built assets.

Our key is to deliver value through the application of our diverse experience, professional skills and technology sector know-how in order to maximise the benefit from money spent on building, operating, occupying, using and owning assets.

Our Approach

Creativity & Market Knowledge

Our approach to project management and quantity surveying is based on the use of modern, sophisticated tools and techniques, combined with excellent training and using RICS qualified personnel, enables us to provide bespoke project solutions.

Projects are critical to a business success and we strive not only to minimise the risk of failure but also to maximise the value that the project brings, regardless of size or complexity.


Our staff include not only project managers and quantity surveyors but also a specialist construction manager. Project teams are always headed by a partner with the appropriate technical staff as required.

Office capacity throughout a year will vary but having a total number of staff of 10 enables us assemble project teams relatively easily, once formed, a project team will not be changed except in exceptional circumstances.

Commerciality & Track Record

Our background as quantity surveyors give us a unique appreciation of overall project cost, the drivers for that cost, the opportunities to reduce cost and risk and the tools needed to deliver successful projects.

Our track record in Jersey goes back to 1947 and our client list and number of repeat projects for them demonstrates our successful record.
