Clients we have worked for
Blu Building Consultants excels in creating high-performing facilities;
We provide an integrated approach to securing results. Our professional Chartered Surveyors, Chartered Project Managers and Consultants can be instructed at any stage of a construction project.
We specialise in the Health sectors built environment and our approach produces pleasant and functional facilities that improve patient comfort and help healthcare providers attract and retain staff.
We are committed to improving the performance of estates in the public and private sectors, through acquisition, partnering, construction management and contracts. We work with individual NHS trusts and private healthcare providers across the UK.
With Trusts undergoing demanding change, Blu interim managers offer the skills and experience needed to lead major transformation programmes and fill critical gaps when capacity is an issue.
As a team we have the skills to take a project from its conception, evolution,
realisation, through to the final management of the facilities.
As Change Agents, Blu Building Consultants have a wealth of experience across all areas of construction management policy and practice.
Our clients are under pressure to deliver, so we share that pressure with them, utilising our considerable project management expertise to ensure that deadlines are met and project objectives are successfully delivered on time and on budget.
Blu are not a traditional interim recruitment company. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver quality rather than the quantity of interim projects we fill. This allows us to build long-lasting relationships with both clients and consultants. Blu only employ passionate people who genuinely care about the projects they complete.
Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
This is a pleasant, controlled scheme which deserves to win. For people of this demographic it is very, very good. It has been very thoughtfully designed, with good signage and use of colour.
Building Better Healthcare Awards
Blu worked with us on the project and ensured they kept our clinicians updated at all times. They always made themselves available when needed guidance and really took on board that clinical and operational work had to take on priority. I am absolutely sure that without Blu we would not have the amazing building we have today.
Senior Service Line Lead Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services
Blu have an exemplary attention to detail and high expectations for all aspects of the project they are overseeing. Whether it is setting up the project correctly as project managers, building staff and patient engagement initiatives, ensuring the product is going to meet the standards of its context, or in project delivery and cash flow, Blu apply equal dedication and provide high quality services.

Blu Building Consultants worked with us to refurbish our new Letchworth Wellbeing Centre. As a new initiative for the organisation Blu provided advice and guidance that was appropriate in language and in conjunction with a strong willingness to understand the importance of the centres infrastructure to meet service user needs. Due to this positive experience we would certainly recommend and would consider utilising BLU Consultants on future projects.
