Our surveyors also specialise in dealing with Dilapidation matters on behalf of both the landlord and the tenant and through on-going training are always right up to date with the relevant laws that are constantly changing.

Quote Until September 2012 was the Bursar/Business Manager of The Robert Napier School, Gillingham, Kent. During that time one of our capital projects was the construction of a £3M three-story classroom block (subsequently named he Caxton Building). The building was designed and managed by John Whitlock at DMP> The Project was completed in 2011, on time and on budget, I was kept fully informed at every stag, via regular project meeting and reports, and consulted on any variations and their costs. The school's wishes were met in every respect, and any problems raised by us were dealt with immediately and satisfactorily.  I cannot praise DMP enough, and John Whitlock in particular, for the way the entire project was managed. I would recommend them to you without reservation.
