We are a specialist commercial construction consultancy set up to provide sub-contractors with all the QS and Finance support you may need.
SubPort was founded by Simon Robinson, a qualified and vastly experienced Quantity Surveyor. Working alongside a management team of former commercial directors in main contractor businesses, SubPort provides their services from a time-served, unique understanding of how main contractors work.
We provide expert advice to Subcontractors and support them with estimating and tendering, valuations and cost management, valuations of variations, contract reviews and dispute resolution.
Our management team are former commercial directors in main contractor businesses with a combined experience of over 100 years, we understand the commercial challenges facing suc-contractors and the wider construction supply chain.
SubPort only works with sub-contractors. This is a significant benefit for sub-contractors who need exclusive support in their agreements with main contractors. We are positioned firmly in your corner.
This unique exclusivity ensures that sub-contractors are well represented and given the best advice in all areas of their business.
The services provided by SubPort are also flexible, giving sub-contractors the option to upscale or downscale support as and when required. Given the volatile nature of projects and the unpredictability of contract gains, this flexibility gives sub-contractors extra peace of mind.
Sub-contractors can also decide which services they want to sign up to, allowing them to secure support on just particularly challenging areas if that is all that is required.
We help you on a proactive or reactive situation
Sub-contractors need support with both proactive strategies and the handling of crisis situations.
By entering into an ongoing partnership with a sub-contractor, SubPort can provide proactive services such as tendering and estimating, contract support, valuations and cost management. We can also provide training to educate your teams in becoming more commercially astute and understanding the basics of a construction contract.
Likewise, SubPort provides valuable services to sub-contractors in a crisis situation. These include recovering cash tied up in retentions, and dispute resolution; areas for which subcontractors have few or no resources, which often results in a loss of revenue and many frustrating hours of valuable time.
Knowing that they have SubPort to be proactive and reactive on their behalf allows the sub-contractor to concentrate on other areas of the business.
What our clients think of us
“Subport have been working with us for the last 10 months now, originally employed to provide commercial support in one of our divisional businesses on a key project.
The project has been a success with new processes and procedures implemented benefiting the business and future projects. Other parts of the group use Subport for ad hoc commercial advice, we find that they are very responsive and easy to deal with.
The relationship is due to continue on future projects and their input will continue to bring great benefit to both the projects and businesses they work within.”
