Padraig Arthur | MSCSI, MRICS, MPM

Managing Director, Project Manager, Chartered Quantity Surveyor

Padraig Arthur has over two decades of experience in all main aspects of the construction industry, including residential, commercial, health, education, and light civil engineering. His firm has served a wide variety of clients in the private and public sectors, including government agencies, religious orders, court services, developers, commercial enterprises, main contractors and specialist subcontractors.

Padraig has qualified to chartership status with both the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI). In recognition of the growing importance of the role of professional Project Managers in the construction industry and in appreciation of the complementary link between Quantity Surveying and Project Management, Padraig recently completed a Masters in Project Management at the University of Limerick.

Having founded Chancery Group in 1997 (as Padraig Arthur & Associates), Padraig took on the mission of providing reliable, integrity-driven professional services to the construction industry. Padraig chose to base his company in the Midlands, the better to offer a nationwide, comprehensive service to clients. His practice is ISO-accredited and holds unblemished Professional Indemnity Insurance.

We take the view that our word is our bond in all three of our core disciplines: Quantity Surveying & Cost Consultancy, Project Management Services, and Engineering Design & Consultancy.

Integrity is at the core of Chancery Group’s mission. We believe in working hard, planning, and standing by our commitments. We also recognise that every interaction we undertake on behalf of our clients affects the final result. For two decades, we have sought to bring foresight, sound decision-making, and a responsible, holistic approach to all of our professional relationships.
