Modus Construction Consultants is an award winning, independent chartered quantity surveying practice based in Faversham.
It provides professional cost consultancy services to the construction industry throughout Kent and the South East. Its stated aim is to become the region’s leading independent quantity surveying practice, building long- lasting relationships forged through the delivery of high quality services.
While still small in scale, it prides itself on having a stimulating and fun working environment in its modern and open plan offices.
Each of the company’s directors is a mentor to a member of the team which has proved hugely beneficial particularly to the junior recruits.
It has sought to grow its business organically through training up apprentices. Today five of its seven surveyors joined the firm on an apprenticeship. Faced with the challenge of working from home, it installed a telephone system to allow staff to video call each other at the touch of a button, while flexible start times have been introduced to allow those with young families the chance to juggle their responsibilities, in addition to the option to work from home when required now staff are returning to the office.
So far three members of staff have been supported and funding through their complete degree courses, with another three currently studying. As the company has progressed, staff have seen pay increases of between 15-30% year-on-year, way above the national average. Overtime, when required, is paid a time and a third. Regular team-building events are staged, along with team lunches, while staff not only get a Christmas bonus but also get the festive week off. It’s clearly paying off too. Revenues increased 16% in 2020 over 2019 to just over 640600.
Its ambitions for the coming years are to grow the business at a steady and manageable rate, securing a larger market share and working on more high-profile projects across all sectors. It is also eyeing up expansion plans into East and West Sussex in due course.
