"Our aim was to merge with a specialist quantity surveying practice with a strong central London commercial client base and with the combined strengths of the two businesses capitalise on the growing central London market."

Andrew Martin, Rider Hunt (London) said: "By combining our unique quantity surveying expertise with K2 Consultancy, we will be able to provide our clients with a greater range of services and benefit from the strength and resources of the bigger group.

"We are excited about current and future opportunities and look forward to continuing to work with existing clients and fellow professionals as well as working with new clients."
