Who we are

Dean Sayers, Sayers CommercialDean Sayers

Dean commenced his career as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor with Mowlem, after which he joined Wates as a Quantity Surveyor. During this period he was involved with several  high value new build and refurbishment projects. He was subsequently engaged by a number of subcontractors in the new build sector, before commencing work as a Commercial Manager in the fast track fit-out sector.

Over time he became more heavily involved in the management of disputes on behalf of both main contractors and subcontractors, which culminated in the founding of Sayers Commercial Limited.  He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, a member of the Adjudication Society and a member of the Society of Construction Law. Keen to keep developing his knowledge and skills, he continues to work towards obtaining a MSc in Construction Law & Dispute Resolution.

Extremely capable and innovative, Dean has extensive  experience of the commercial and legal aspects of the construction industry.

He is proficient in all matters from the most basic aspects of quantity surveying and commercial management through to solving the most complex commercial disputes; something which his track record in the industry supports.

Dean plays cricket in his spare time and likes watching football when he can. A real animal lover, he also enjoys travelling the world (often with his beloved Barmy Army) and states his favourite country ever visited is New Zealand.

 

Dean’s approach to delivering the best possible service to you:

“Sayers Commercial provides a very personal service with a high degree of professionalism. We have  extensive knowledge of the industry, and utilise this to achieve the best result for you. We will explore your requirements and be open, frank and honest with you prior to engagement. We will  always keep you  fully up to date on progress during the period of our appointment and we guarantee to achieve the best outcome possible in all claims situations.

We don’t  carry the large overhead of some of the larger  claims consultancy firms within the industry and  as a result, we  can provide our  services to you at very competitive rates.  Please get in touch, we look forward to discussing how we can help.”

Matt has worked as a Quantity Surveyor for the last 15 years completing a part time degree in Quantity Surveying whilst gaining work experience in a private Quantity Surveying practice, a major residential developer and, for the last 10 years, in fast track commercial fit-out.

With proficiency in both pre-contract cost planning and post-contract quantity surveying duties including cost reporting, management of variation accounts, valuation and final account negotiations Matt has an understanding of all commercial aspects of a project from inception to completion.
