"Scotiabank has worked with BCQS for several decades, most recently and currently with myself in both Colombia and the Cayman Islands. In Colombia, our recently completed Phase 1 project comprised over 60,000 square feet of fitout for a hi-tech Global Call Centre which has just been completed to our and its occupant’s entire satisfaction. BCQS in their role as local project managers and construction cost managers has assisted ably in all aspects, from inception with local market knowledge, to acquiring tenders, and supervising and managing the supervision of our design team and the construction work. The project involved many intricacies, and specific deadlines, including extensive night time work, which made the project especially difficult at times. As I am based in Toronto, we were particularly reliant on the BCQS team to lead the process on the Bank’s behalf. I am pleased to say that BCQS has been a reliable ally in interfacing with our local team and ensuring that our interests have been protected and carried out at all times. Accordingly, I would have no hesitation recommending any institution or company doing business in Colombia to use BCQS."
“They were very responsive and managed our project with great attention. This was particularly important to us as I was not in BVI myself, so I depended heavily on their constant feedback and communications to ensure everything went ahead smoothly and within the timeframe we had.”
“We engaged BCQS International to complete a total refit of our BVI office which was completed on time and under budget. From the initial quote and design through to the final feature points, BCQS have offered sound advice, competitive prices and a proactive approach to each element of the project. The team at BCQS International have always displayed a high level of professionalism while delivering an excellent result, regularly going the extra mile to produce the quality finish we were seeking. Jonathan and Lyle were constantly in communication with us so we knew what to expect and when. The bulk of the work was done after hours and completed in the given time frames. When work needed to be done during hours BCQS were very professional and mindful of creating the least amount of disruption to our team, clients and services. The premises were always left neat and tidy, making it easy for us to continue working. The experience of working with BCQS was enjoyable and we would not hesitate to recommend your services to others.”
“The main advantage of using BCQS was to have someone who was clearly on our ‘team’, who handled disputes, assessed quotes, reviewed proposed timelines and monitored the quality of work to meet our very demanding standards.”
“BCQS knew we had a tight budget, and worked exceptionally hard to maximise the value from each of the building trades. BCQS kept our expectations in, kept us within budget and on schedule."
“I have had the pleasure of working with BCQS over the past 8 years on 3 luxury hotel and villa projects. Two in the Turks & Caicos and one proposed hotel redevelopment project in the Bahamas. I have found their involvement to be a critical component in creating a development that meets our budget and maintaining cost controls through to completion. Their knowledge of the local rates for construction has been invaluable. I would not undertake a development in the Caribbean without their involvement. I highly recommend.”
“BCQS provided project and cost management services for the construction of the new Willow House building at Cricket Square. They have proven to be very professional, reliable and have always responded in a timely manner. They have managed the project budget and identified cost issues prior to them being committed so I have been able to keep track of any changes. They have been proactive, suggesting savings and also identified key risks that enabled us to avoid cost overruns. I would use BCQS for any future development.”
“Local knowledge and a time earned appreciation of how things get done are fundamental to the success of any project in the Caribbean region. As the architect for a number of estate residences and beach houses built by the BCQS team, including my own, I can attest to BCQS abilities to consistently deliver on time, within budget and usually exceed their clients’ expectations.”
“BCQS have proved themselves to be both reliable and professional in their duties. Their staff understand our project needs in terms of reporting, communication and day to day administration. In particular, on Golden Square they have brought comprehensive cost control to a complicated building project.”
"In over 5 years of development BCQS’s involvement as sole project manager, quantity surveyor, and procurement lead was nothing short of critical in delivering a world class product in good time and with almost zero changes and cost overruns. This meant getting the right people in at the right times in a staggered and highly complex project. BCQS delivered detailed transparency throughout construction resulting in relatively few headaches for a project of our size. Looking back on the project, I thoroughly enjoyed the process and the people. I simply would not undertake a development project in the BVI in the foreseeable future without partnering again with BCQS."
"I’m very satisfied with BCQS (BVI) on how they handled all the Project & Construction Management Services in the Construction from start to finish of our Beach Development Project in Virgin Gorda, BVI. Ben Butler and Jonathan Cadwgan- Evans were very thorough and professional rendering their services. Their knowledge of local Government processes and regulations and with local Contractors was instrumental in the success of our Project. I would gladly recommend BCQS (BVI) to anyone looking to build a facility in the BVI or on the surrounding Islands."
"BCQS International acted as Project Managers for the development of the New Offices and Multi-Storey Car Park Project at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre in St. Michael, Barbados. We were extremely pleased with the way in which Sanjay Amin and BCQS International managed the project and therefore have no hesitation in recommending their company."
"I have worked with BCQS for approximately 8 years. BCQS have provided quantity surveying services including fund management, cost control, quantity surveying, preparation of bills of quantities, payment reviews, final account settlement and procurement advice. BCQS have proven to be reliable and have always responded to my requests when needed."
"BCQS's involvement was instrumental in the building of the Gansevoort Turks & Caicos project. The professionals in their local office had a thorough market knowledge and offered valuable input into our project scope and goals. They provided architectural drawing costing analysis, prepared bid packages and performed ongoing construction valuation and payment certifications as well as final account reporting. They were always timely, worked as part of our team and were true professionals in helping us accomplish our project goals. I would recommend them highly."
"BCQS has consistently demonstrated their in-depth knowledge and understanding of the resort development process and they are always prepared to meet the AIB Banks requirements and client-imposed deadlines, without compromising the quality of the service provided."
“We were very pleased with the Construction Management service provided by BCQS, in particular their ability to manage the whole process without us having to deal directly with sub-contractors and suppliers. The professional way in which they managed the cost reporting and financial administration of the project was very informative and enabled us to work within our overall budget.”
"BCQS worked with us from start to finish in a professional and efficient manner. Their knowledge of industry contractors was invaluable to the project. Even when the project was finished BCQS stood by their work and made sure every detail was ironed out. I would recommend them to anyone considering building or renovating a home."
“BCQS were very attentive during the bid process and provided us with value engineering, which enabled us to proceed with our project budget. We were concerned that being away during the construction phase may lead to problems, but to our delight, BCQS’s construction management skills performed excellently. They assembled a well qualified management and subcontractor team and the project was completed on time. I would recommend BCQS for any construction project. Well done guys!”
