Davis Langdon has worked on a number of prestige projects including Liverpool Paradise Project.

Davis Langdon LLP is a global construction consultancy, providing managed solutions for clients investing in infrastructure, property and construction, worldwide. The firm has worked on a number of prestige projects including Westfield London, the Tate Modern, Liverpool One, the Royal Festival Hall, and the Eden Project Cornwall.
For the fifth year running, Davis Langdon LLP has been also ranked in the Sunday Times ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ league table. The firm has more than 5,000 staff in 105 offices worldwide.
Neil Ashton, Davis Langdon’s head of procurement and supplier management says: “The RFI we issued in the spring had a number of challenging requirements - from being able to reduce the level of fixed costs in the existing service, to offering a flexible support model across the regions to vary the level of support and cost, to aid in cost management as well reducing the volume of calls to the helpdesk.”
The contract is reported to be worth £27.5m through to 2014.
