Konsult, formed in 2021, is a niche cost management consultancy born from the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic, founded out of a strong desire to impact positive change in market practices & culture.

LEADERSHIP

The enterprise is established by Daniel King, a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), with over 20 years’ experience. Daniel was educated in the profession in the United Kingdom (UK) during the early 2000’s and experienced a major shift in UK construction delivery ethos during this period, with the onset of a more collaborative forms of contracting. This followed many years of adversarial & wasteful practices, prompting widespread changes in governmental legislation & industry culture. Daniel is aiming to impart lessons learned & share knowledge to influence a similar transformation in the local construction sector, so better project outcomes are achieved for all stakeholders, where projects are delivered on-time and on-budget, absent of any lingering claim liabilities.
