About Us


Quantum Solutions was established in 2009 by Richard Neilson, a Chartered Quantity Surveyor, and has become recognised as a leading and forward thinking consultancy. We deliver a fresh approach to clients working within the construction industry and our ‘can do’ attitude is central to our success.


Based in Kilmarnock, we work across Ayrshire and the Central Belt, to deliver Quantity Surveying, Project Management and Commercial Management services to private clients, residential developers and public sector clients in construction for hospitality, commercial, industrial and residential projects.


We are unashamedly methodical and believe having a detailed input at the start of a project is crucial to ensure all parties know exactly what is expected of them, and to guarantee a successful outcome. With a ‘hands on’ approach, we stay close to every aspect from conception to completion.


Our Values


At Quantum Solutions we genuinely love what we do. This means we work hard, come up with unique ideas and fully embrace team spirit to deliver a first class project.


Our personal principles infiltrate every aspect of our professional life. Our business is built on integrity, openness and loyalty, and our clients know they can totally trust us to get the job done.


Our enthusiasm for every new project never stops. We remain committed and determined to the end, dealing calmly and confidently with any challenge which may spring up along the way.

Before establishing Quantum Solutions, he held senior commercial positions with national developers and contractors such as Dandara and the Kier Group, where his projects included the Glasgow Harbour Phase 2 development.

In founding his own consultancy, Richard set out to deliver exceptional customer service for every size and type of construction project, from large scale housing and commercial leisure developments, to bespoke homes.
