In a departure from conventional quantity surveying services, Venn + Milford’s quantity surveyors are supported by a team of experienced Word processing personnel, as well as a team of data capturers. This is another value-added service offered to our clients, ensuring that all documents prepared in our offices are uniform and uphold a consistently high standard of quality.
Venn + Milford’s project teams have combined experience amounting to hundreds of years, with some specialists having spent over 40 years with the company. Over the last number of years, we have had a continuous growth phase which necessitated our move to new, more spacious, and more conveniently located offices in Woodmead, Johannesburg.
