About Us

Lindford Consulting was established in 2003 by Edward Carolan. Edward is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with over 30 years of live construction project experience. The team’s detailed knowledge and understanding enables Lindford Consulting to provide pragmatic Dispute Avoidance and Resolution advice. Our advice helps you minimise risk and ensure success. This applies whether you’re hoping for a negotiated settlement, mediation or adjudication.

In the event that formal proceedings in litigation or arbitration are pursued, single or joint Expert Opinion can be provided. This will take the form of expert witness reports, and independent and impartial expert evidence. We understand the importance of maintaining a neutral and professional position when working as experts.

We have many years’ experience working in a number of built environment sectors, including:

  • Major transport infrastructure
  • Nuclear remediation
  • Industrial rail networks
  • Aviation
  • Civil engineering
  • Commercial construction
  • Residential

Whether Employer’s Contractors, Sub-Contractors or project delivery teams, each party wants their project to meet programme and budget constraints with minimum disruption. We apply our knowledge and experience on live projects and our detailed understanding of construction contract law. Using lessons learned from our experience we ensure your project issues, disagreements and disputes are picked up early or resolved quickly.

We fully appreciate the desire to avoid a dispute with a Client or other party in a project. However,  if this is unavoidable, we have the understanding, expertise and knowledge to manage the process. Having had first-hand experience of disputes we have been in your shoes and we aim to ensure your long term business relationships are not damaged.

Lindford Consulting are members of:

  • Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
  • Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb)
  • Adjudication Society
  • The Society of Construction Law (SCL)

Based from our offices in St Albans, Hertfordshire we provide advice to companies all over the UK and Europe.
