Quantum Group builds QS team with investment in next generation

Pontefract-based quantity surveyors the Quantum Group have strengthened their team with the appointment of a young construction professional and investment in the development of another key team member.

Formed of three divisions - Quantum Consult, Quantum CPM (Cost & Project Management) and Q- Meruit - the Quantum Group provides quantity surveying, specialist business and contract management services and a host of consultancy services to the construction and industrial sectors across the UK and internationally.

Adding capacity to its growing team, Amraj Badesha has joined as a consultant for Quantum CPM. Prior to joining Quantum CPM, Amraj - who graduated in 2019 with a BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying with Commercial Management - worked for main contractor Interserve, along with client- based roles in London and Leeds. He is already applying his academic knowledge and experience working with sub-contractors and contractors to professionally administer contracts.

In tandem with this appointment, James Laister-Farrar, who joined Quantum Group as a trainee at the age of 18 and fulfils the same role as Amraj for the Quantum Consult division, is working towards a Quantity Surveying degree with the University College of Estate Management. His development has been supported by the Quantum Group, ensuring that he is fully qualified to provide specialist assistance to clients in all areas of quantity surveying with an emphasis on dispute resolution.

Amraj's career development will also be supported, initially with his progression towards the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) and a Master of Laws degree (LLM).

Stephen Pilling, director of the Quantum Group says: "We are delighted to welcome Amraj to Quantum and congratulate James on his latest achievements to develop his career with us. They both bring fresh and interesting perspectives that complement the experience of the rest our team extremely well, ensuring we can continually apply innovative approaches to deliver the best results for our clients."

Much of Quantum's work involves ensuring that the building and construction contracts are implemented correctly and that these are delivered efficiently throughout their duration. Its services allow contractors and sub-contractors of all sizes to access specialist support with ease to deliver contracts smoothly, protect their interests and ensure any disputes are either avoided or managed professionally.

The Quantum Group was founded in 1999 and now employs a team of seven people at its main offices in Pontefract and additional office in Oldham.
