Focus Consulting

Focus Consulting is a leading independent, professional building surveying, design and cost consultancy providing services to the property and construction industry, based in Brighton & Hove


From Listed buildings to modern eco-homes, Focus Consulting has been providing quality in-depth advice combined with highly rated customer service to clients across London and the Southeast for a quarter of a century.

Founded in 1998 in Brighton & Hove, which remains home to the company’s head office, the company is proud to have maintained its ethos of quality personal service, enabling it to remain a flexible and adaptable partner to its longstanding clients, which include major utilities organisations, education establishments and public authorities, as well as commercial and residential property developers.

Managing Director Tony Hulejczuk remains at the helm as the company’s Senior Chartered Building Surveyor and attributes the company’s success to maintaining the mission he set out when starting the business of ‘doing the very best for our clients at all times’.

As the company celebrates its 25th Anniversary, Tony looks back at what has helped to drive the company’s success, its continued commitment to ongoing improvement and the new ideas and technology which are already underpinning the company’s ongoing growth plans for the future.

Why did you start Focus Consulting?

When we started out, it was very much because I wanted to be my own boss; I’d always wanted to do the best for my clients and I could see the way I wanted to advise and support them. I’d been working in a corporate and as the company split up, I saw an opportunity to set up my own consultancy, to grow and develop my own team in order to ensure that we could always provide value to a client.

You mainly work across the Southeast and London, so why choose Brighton & Hove as your base?

I set up the company here because it is a great working environment with a fantastic network of people in the industry. Over the past 25 years I have got to know so many people and it is a pleasure to have been able to continue working with them.

It remains our home because being here, with such a strong team, has meant we’ve been able to maintain the strong values which have enabled our clients across the UK and Europe achieve high-value outcomes.

To what do you attribute your success?

Our success can be attributed to a firm commitment to quality and a keen understanding of our client’s requirements.

We have managed to retain our traditional personal service while adopting modern values. Whatever the project size, the highest standards of service are maintained using qualified RICS accredited professionals and the latest technology in conjunction with tried and tested practices and processes.

What are your key highlights?

It’s a great mix – there are the clients and projects of which I am proud but also the huge amount of work we have done in the community and the monies we have raised for charity through our Golf Days as well as other events.

And of course, there are our big celebration anniversary events – I have great memories of our five and ten-year anniversary parties. I admit I am very much looking forward to our 25th Anniversary Party which has been in planning for some time now.

Where do you see the company going in the next 25 years?

I am in the fortunate position where I have an amazing team which has played a significant role in helping the business grow and mature over the past decades.

With a number of recent additions, I am lucky that I can have such confidence in the team, that I know the future success of the company isn’t just all on me as the MD. I know that they will be continuing to bring new ideas to the business, putting long-term plans in place and supporting Focus Consulting’s continued growth and success for the next 25 years at least!

Any final words?

Here’s to the next 25 years!
