About Us


The Practice was founded in Liverpool in 1935 by Mr. John Youdan Briggs, who was a founder member and past National President of the Institute of Quantity Surveyors. Mr Briggs died in 1963 but the firm remains based in Liverpool.

Although forward looking, fully computerised and embracing new technology wherever appropriate, the firm adheres very strongly to the traditional ideals of integrity and professional service. It is our policy to prepare quantities wherever appropriate as it is our belief that this provides the best value for money for our clients.

Youdan Briggs Ltd is also registered as an approved consultant with Constructionline, the North West Consortium for NHS Trusts and the Department of the Environment.

It is our policy to provide independent and timely cost advice to the client at all times from inception to completion of a project

Experience has taught us that simple reporting of bald facts is rarely sufficient for the client’s needs, financial statements can often be overlooked, misdirected or simply misunderstood. It is our aim, therefore, to be as pro-active in the process as possible by ensuring that the client has not only been informed of the financial position but is made aware of its implications
