Who We Are

MEA is a professional team of chartered quantity surveyors and construction consultants

Personable and proactive, we always go beyond the brief.

Your trusted team

We’re a friendly team that goes the extra mile. Many of our senior people have been with us for decades and we all feel like the custodians of the business – keen to preserve our strong heritage.

From MEA’s foundation in 1967, we’ve grown to three offices across the centre of London, leafy Surrey and the historic city of Bath. From these locations we’re trusted to manage landmark projects nationwide – with budgets between £500,000 and £50 million. This work includes private residential, schools, affordable flats, prestigious services offices, shopping centres and more.

We’ve grown through word-of-mouth recommendation, with long-standing client relationships across the private and public sector. We’re regulated by the professional body for our industry – RICS – and we’re BS EN ISO 9001:2015 accredited.

In 2020, following two years of close collaboration, Clark Associates officially became a part of the MEA group, rebranded as MEA Clark. For over two decades, Clark Associates, under the leadership of Will Clark, had been serving the construction industry with exceptional Quantity Surveying and Project Management services from their South West base. Now operating from our South West office in Beehive Yard, Bath, MEA Clark has seamlessly integrated into the MEA business unlocking additional support and resource for our clients.

In 2022, MEA expanded its reach and capabilities by welcoming the London-based Quantity Surveying firm Hother Associates into the MEA group, now rebranded as MEA Hother. With a legacy dating back to 1992, Hother Associates had firmly established themselves as a dynamic and progressive practice, offering expert services in Construction Cost Consultancy and Contract Administration to clients across a wide spectrum of industries. Their portfolio comprised a diverse range of projects, ranging from multi-million-pound developments to smaller fit-outs and refurbishments.  Now seamlessly integrated into MEA and operating from our London office at The Print Rooms, Southwark, our London-based clients enjoy the added benefits of the wealth of industry knowledge, resources, and experience that the Hother team brings to the table. This strategic move strengthens our commitment to delivering top-tier service and support to our clients in the capital and beyond.

The MEA difference

We believe our values are the cornerstone to our success, these principles guide our actions and decisions, and they are at the heart of everything we do.


We know from experience that successful projects are founded on all round collaboration. We operate openly within the project team and lead by example by ensuring we always deliver our tasks on time.


Our goal is to set the bar for quality of comprehensive Quantity Surveying services. We strongly believe this is why customers recommend us and return to us, because they know we always deliver on our promises.


We always strive to deliver value for our clients, we ask questions, we challenge designs and promote discussion on alternative approaches to keep costs to the minimum and to maximise value. Our advice is always balanced, holistic and always in the best interest of our clients.


Despite our growth we operate as a small company whereby every project no matter the size gets the same high level of service and dedication, with every project getting hands on involvement from a director.


We believe in clear concise communications with our clients and wider project team. We take a collaborative approach to information sharing ensuring every stakeholder understands the project objectives and strategy and we define clear roles and responsibilities.

Our people are our greatest asset. With vast and diverse experience, they excel as great communicators, driven by the aim of not just providing a valued service, but one that you will genuinely enjoy.
