About Us

Founded in 1954, by Raymond J. Playle, as Chartered Quantity Surveyors we have extended our services to include Architecture, Building Surveying, Contract Management, Party Wall Advice, Access Consultancy, Principal Designer/CDM Consultant and Expert Witness, providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution across a range of projects. The practice, which has offices in Sidcup, Ipswich, London and Surrey, is a Limited Liability Partnership.

Playle & Partners LLP are a Multi-disciplinary consultancy providing a service to both public and private sector clients. The company objective is to deliver the highest level of service, with expert advice and actively pursue continual improvement.

As Construction and Property Consultants we recognise that every project depends upon a delicate set of balances. We operate a Quality Management System in accordance with ISO9001:2015 which ensures the needs and expectations of our customers and any other relevant ‘interested parties’ are met by way of:-

  • Professional service delivered by qualified staff
  • Respect for people
  • Healthy, Inspiring work environment
  • Profitability

As Professional Construction and Property Consultants we recognise that every project depends upon a delicate set of balances:

  • Understanding and meeting our clients’ aims while maintaining accurate and tight cost controls.
  • Reacting to the needs of the moment but still being able to stand back and provide proactive impartial and innovative advice.
  • Managing relationships with the client team, architects and contractors while encouraging a drive for continuous improvement.
  • Balancing the needs of today while being alive to future sustainability impact.

Since the introduction of the Building Surveying department in 1995, the company has continued to provide high standards of services to a variety of public and private sector clients within the UK. The projects we have undertaken range in complexity and value and we have consistently delivered a high level of quality work and service.

Furthermore, our clients receive good, precise and expert advice to enable them to comply with all relevant legislation and maintain effective management throughout the project.

Playle & Partners LLP have successfully provided CDM/Principal Designer Services for over 22 years. These projects range in value from £20,000 to over £90 million, the majority of which have been on occupied sites. We are aware of the challenges that projects pose and these have always been carefully assessed and managed to allow the completion of a large number of successful projects. We hold a number of Accreditations including CHAS and the Association of Project Safety.

As a result of our commitment and professionalism as well as attention to detail we continue to expand our client base, obtain additional work from existing clients and successfully deliver professional services to our clients.

Managing the balance needs experience, which is why every project is led by a Partner, who provides a consistent point of contact and is personally responsible for the successful completion of the client’s work. In this environment, all our teams are expected to deliver high quality solutions effectively and efficiently.

The Playle & Partners LLP approach to delivering professional services is to create for each project an experienced, partner led team, which remains constant throughout the project. Partner leadership ensures a high level of input in particular at the beginning of projects, helping to establish a Project Plan which reflects an in-depth understanding of the client’s objectives. Maintaining dedicated teams, ensures continuity of communication and project delivery, and allows for the development of continuous improvement and rigorously controlled quality standards.

Playle & Partners LLP is committed to the implementation of BIM and fully supports its collaborative working to achieve effective and efficiently designed, constructed and managed projects. We are a strong advocate for collaboration and utilising BIM processes that will support the team and Client with increased efficiency, value and accuracy on projects. Successful implementation of BIM will assist in the delivery of the contract through reduced project risk, reduced waste and through avoiding issues such as lack of coordination which can lead to cost or health & safety implications.

Playle & Partners LLP may have been established for over 65 years but we do recognise in the post-Egan 21st Century the importance of keeping up to date not only with information systems but ensuring that staff are well trained and are up to date with technical and industry issues.

The result – Playle & Partners are trusted to bring service, experience and added value to every construction project and across all disciplines.
