Consultant joins forces with Perunding C&T

Consultant Cyril Sweett has formed an alliance with a Malaysian quantity surveyor, in the latest move in its strategy of international expansion.

The firm has signed an alliance agreement with Perunding C&T Management (PCT), a Kuala Lumpur-based quantity surveying firm with expertise in the hospitality, retail, technology and industrial sectors. 

The move follows Sweett’s July purchase of Hong Kong-based quantity surveying firm Widnell, and its alliance agreement with Meiho Facility Works, a business that provides design, cost consulting, project management services and value engineering to the Japanese construction market.     

The firm did not say how many staff Perunding has, or how much business it expected to materialise through the alliance.

Dean Webster, chief executive officer of Cyril Sweett, said: “We have taken a number of significant steps to drive our international expansion during 2010, ensuring we are well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities across Asia, Australia and the Middle East.”
