Since co-founding Toscano Clements Taylor in 2007, Ian Taylor has honed his approach to cost consulting by leveraging his 45-plus year career in construction and cost management. He spent a bulk of his early career as a quantity surveyor, where he worked on behalf of project owners across the globe to provide guidance and manage project costs through the construction lifecycle. His expertise in the field of cost management has since earned him a Fellowship with the London-based Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Ian currently serves as a Principal and Senior Cost Manager for TCT, and oversees a team of several estimators to ensure estimates are delivered on schedule. He believes in providing as much detail as possible in the early stages of design to lay the groundwork and set expectations for his clients. Ian leans heavily on his experience during a project’s pre-schematic phase, when his role and estimates are critical in determining a scope and budget, and effectively communicates with the design team during each phase to produce estimates that allow clients to make sound financial decisions.
