We found HDC’s response to our questions throughout the project were dealt with in a timely and extremely well thought out approach that made the school team understand costings in a simple but exact light... I cannot recommend them highly enough and we would use them time and time again.
Bursar, Halstead Preparatory School
Hand Deere & Cox are a practice offering professional construction services to the private and public sectors in the construction industry.
HDC dates back to 1973 at which time Alan Hand setup in business with John Hatton under the name of Hatton & Hand. Hand Deere & Cox became the practice's name when Hatton & Hand merged with Monk & Deere in 1989.
We are a practice that pride ourselves in the personal service we provide. Each client's account is handled by an overseeing Partner. In fact, it is quite usual for a Partner to act as the primary contact for more complex or sensitive projects.
The core principle of the practice is to provide cost information, guidance and control at each stage of a project. We place our clients in control by keeping them aware of the cost and contractual implications of their decisions during the complicated process of building procurement.
Testament to the quality of our service, the practice obtains the vast majority of its business through repeat custom. As a result we have developed several long term relationships with our current client list.
