Neil Milburn, Development Director
Barratt Homes North East

I was favourably impressed by Mr Bushell's evidence, regarding him as a careful and conscientious witness. On the few occasions where it was shown that he had made mistakes he was quick to accept this. His valuations seemed to me to be reasonable and even-handed.

Approved Judgement B50MA020 of His Honour Judge Stephen Davies

By the close of the enquiry, and in the light of the expert quantity surveyor evidence, the Council had accepted the appellant's costs calculation, including infrastructure and abnormal items, and had used the figures in its own appraisals.

Thank you for your input acting in a consultancy role to prepare a terminal schedule of dilapidations, assess the tenant's final claim, maintain a schedule of actual costs, and lead negotiations with the outgoing tentant to a very satisfactory settlement. The works were completed within a tight deadline and the final settlement covered virtually all our costs.

Rachel Bagshaw, Estate Manager
Holker Estates

I have worked with Gary Bushell acting as expert on a number of construction-related cases. I have always found him to be responsive to timescales as well as being thorough and logical in his approach to giving his opinion in a dispute. Gary is extremely experienced and qualified in his quantity surveying specialism and, as a member of The Academy of Experts, he fully understands the procedural obligations required by CPR 35. Gary’s written expert reports are clear and unbiased and he understands that the expert’s role is an impartial one with an overriding duty to the court.

John Sim, Partner
Temple Heelis Solicitors

This is an unusually complex project and your advice and guidance during the process and the way that you provided a seamless link with all the various parties has been invaluable. Mike and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and business contacts should they require a similar service. Thanks once again for taking professional care of our project.

Pamela Houghton, Director
Parkhouse Country Estates

Mr Bushell clearly has a great deal of experience in quantity surveying as detailed in his CV. Based on my dealings with him, I regard him as extremely competent and, on the occasion we instructed Mr Bushell, his preparation was exemplary. The report that Mr Bushell prepared was clear, concise and comprehensive and was prepared timeously (not always the case with expert witnesses). Mr Bushell’s advice was clear and impartial and he made it clear to the client that he had an obligation to be objective rather than partisan.
