Aster and Synergy Housing have used the services of Moor Consult on a number of commissions in relation to various Contractor account and programme matters.
I have found Moor Consult’s advice to be professional, relevant and invaluable. They worked very well with both our internal team and the selected Employer’s Agents. Moor Consult’s advice and support gave us a strong basis to take recommendations forward to my fellow Board Directors and implement strategies to deal with what were quite extensive commercial and financial matters in question; this being addressed efficiently, timely and with a greater degree of certainty.
We commissioned Moor Consult to assist us on a complex project requiring operational, commercial and contractual support. The team at Moor led by Rod, proved invaluable to us and provided not only timely but pertinent contract, operational and technical advice. They also followed it up with action and delivery giving us a great result.
Moor offers a truly unique service and has the ability to not only understand issues quickly but to then implement the necessary commercial, programme and operational actions.
Working with Moor on a complex grade II listed building project, I selected Moor Consult to assist me as Project Director on a high-profile project that had a multitude of time, quality and programme issues. The team at Moor led by Rod, proved excellent to work with offering high quality and well-reasoned advice. Rod and his team have a mass of experience having worked in many complex and contractually demanding situations. They are firmly grounded with current build experience and the expertise they offer is truly pertinent and always Client focussed.
I can only say great things of Rod and his team at Moor, they certainly supported me well and I strongly recommend them.
At my time at Aster Homes in the position of Development Director, I was confronted with both an unrealistic and overly ambitious Contractor’s final account claim on one of our large new build developments. There was a strong risk that the Contractor would prematurely commence formal adjudication(s) at any time, which would have been challenging for us. I commissioned the services of Moor Consult’s in both commercial and programme roles to carry out a full and detailed assessment of the Contractor’s time and quantum claims. Moor Consult quickly attained a strong grasp of the various project issues/events and working with our project team allowed me to address the claims directly and confidently with the Contractor which in turn led to an amicable resolution of all matters of difference.
Moor Consult were instrumental in providing me with expert opinion and advice required and for that I am very grateful to Rod and Simon at Moor Consult.
I would strongly recommend their services.

As part of our services to clients we teamed up with Moor Consult to assist a major housing client in its negotiations with a large building contractor specialising in the housing sector in relation to its final account including delay damages and extension of time. The team at Moor Consult headed up by Rod Short is very experienced, commercial and are capable of providing proper practical advice on all aspects of delay, quantum and project development services.
With the invaluable technical expertise of Moor Consult we assisted the client to settle the matter without going to through a formal litigation process.
The Westerleigh Group are the leading crematoria and cemetery developer / operator within the UK, catering for over 30,000 funerals per year.
During a period of dynamic growth within our crematoria development programme and to ease the pressure on me and my growing development team, I employed the services of Moor Consult. Moor assisted in taking the later stage developments through their final stages and into build. I found Rod to be excellent, having the knowledge, experience and manner to fully interrogate and help us arrive at the right solutions in terms of programme, price and specification. This in turn gave me the ability to confidently deal with a major growth phase of our business. Working alongside Rod was a real pleasure.
I recommend the Moor team in the strongest terms and thank them for all their valuable help to date.
We are the largest specialist construction and energy law firm in the UK and work, Worldwide. I have worked with Rod for a number of years, latterly on a very demanding and high-profile construction project requiring legal, commercial and construction advice. The team at Moor Consult worked closely with us and our Client supporting the project with operational, programme and commercial services. Working closely with Rod and his team, we collectively managed to allow our Client high quality and effective advice and address the many project issues which allowed them to conclude their Contract obligations.
For me and my team, working with Moor Consult was excellent, they are an excellent construction consultancy and back up their programme, contract and commercial advice with relevant and current construction knowledge.
We are an international manufacturer and provider of aluminium extrusions and aluminium systems. Due to outside influences in connection with a high profile and multi issue project, we required major project construction and contract advice; this in addition to programme, commercial and operational support. The team at Moor were a major factor in my Company concluding the project efficiently and without material interruption to our day to day operations. The service provided was excellent, prompt and reflective of the years of experience the team at Moor have within the industry.
Moor’s Client focus, quick understanding of the issues, preparation and delivery of the agreed strategy, in my opinion is outstanding and second to none.
