Shepherd Chartered Surveyors


30 November 2016


Johnston Carmichael provided financial due diligence on behalf of Shepherd Chartered Surveyors in relation to the acquisition of Hardies LLP.

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors merged with Hardies Property & Construction Consultants in December 2016.  Both practices share a long history, established in 1880 and 1913 respectively, with each having developed complementary but different disciplines around property advice.

Hardies is a widely known and respected multi-disciplined practice specialising in construction services, project management, building and quantity surveying with a respected valuation department.  

Shepherd is a national survey and valuation partnership with a mature building surveying department. Under the agreed terms of the merger, the two businesses will work side by side, complementing each other in order to achieve the best outcome for the extensive client bases vested in both businesses. Hardies will specialise in all areas around construction services with Shepherd specialising in its traditional areas of valuation, property management and agency.

Both practices will retain their own branding and identities, with Hardies being the construction arm of the business and Shepherd being its go-to valuation arm.
