Cost Management Services

Iain Stevenson - Managing Director

Iain is a dynamic and dedicated Chartered Surveyor with over 33 years experience, 18 years of which have been at a senior management level. His honest approach and outgoing personality, combined with good communication skills, have helped him to successfully manage and deliver cost consultancy, project management and commercial management services to a variety of clients over the years.

Prior to the formation of IKS Consulting, Iain has headed up and developed the London offices of construction consultancies and has worked throughout the UK, Middle East, Africa and mainland Europe. Iain has also been a Director of a Dubai based property investment trust.

Iain’s experience is varied and includes major private sector development including research laboratories, media and leisure projects. Iain’s public sector experience includes Health projects both within and outwith the general hospital environment, higher education and social housing provision. Iain has a wealth of recent experience in arts, leisure and heritage projects and is currently delivering many projects where either HLF or Arts Council England are the major funder of the project. Current HLF/ACE funded projects include Mercury Theatre Redevelopment, Brooklands Museum, Netley Chapel and Whitchurch Silk Mill.

Our design projects involve highly original architecture that in most cases simply haven't been constructed before. This really pushes a QS to the limits, as the cost data just doesn't exist. Thankfully, IKS is completely undaunted by such deep innovation and is well equipped to provide us with realistic cost information and as importantly, the supply chain to deliver the project.
