Your World Matters to Us.

Integrated Management Systems

Cosmos Projects Ltd recognises that quality, health, safety and environmental matters are key to maintaining customer satisfaction and we recognise our role in ensuring a safe and healthy working environment for both our customers and our employees.

Avison Young have worked closely with Cosmos Projects on various types of contracts for over seven years now.

Both our clients and our in-house Avison Young Building Consultancy team are happy with the Cosmos Projects team’s project management skills and with their general approach and quality achieved on each project.

Recent projects carried out on our behalf for the University of St Andrews have involved multi-disciplinary trades on challenging sites which regularly remain occupied during the works. These works are always carried out to a high standard, on time and with minimal disruption to our clients and to the building occupiers.

We remain very happy to consider Cosmos Projects for future work. What is very helpful to Avison Young is the excellent estimating and also the post contract QS input from Cosmos which makes cost management very simple to manage for us in any contract administration roles.

Murray Watson — Director, Avison Young

Planet Decorators recently completed taping and decoration works at our second floor office refurbishment project in Castle Terrace, Edinburgh. Our client was absolutely delighted with the quality of the finished job. We look forward to working with John and his team again on future projects.

Marcus Roy - Project Manager, Woodhouse Contracts Ltd

We are delighted with our experience of working with Cosmos Projects over the duration of recent projects. We have found Cosmos Project’s team to be refreshingly co-operative and attentive and have a solution-based approach on their outlook to projects. Having worked previously with the management staff, this, we feel assisted with a team approach. Under the direction of Chris McNeill, Cosmos Projects bring a level of client side understanding that, we feel, sets them apart from others, and makes them a contractor of choice when considering tender lists. We would have no hesitation in recommending Cosmos Projects.

I worked with Cosmos on the internal and external refurbishment of a Grade ‘B’ listed townhouse in Glasgow city centre. The work included extensive internal improvements to services and finishes to provide speculative office space for let. We collaborated with Cosmos following a competitive tender process and value engineered the project scope and specification in line with our client’s budget requirements.
