Crosher & James opened their Manchester Office in the early 70's as part of a quantity surveying tradition that had its roots in the Eighteenth Century. Already an innovator that firm had identified opportunities for costing skills in Capital Allowances and Taxation and developed that into a market-leading role. As the boom 80's collapsed into the recession 90's Crosher & James and John Wilding founded a Joint Venture company Crosher James Wilding (in parallel with John Wilding & Co).

In the late 90's further market rationalisation led to the whole shareholding being acquired by John Wilding and in February 2001 the firm was renamed Blake Wilding Limited. To differentiate from John Wilding & Co the newly named organisation has been directed into a number of defined areas with directors that encompass not only surveying, construction and engineering expertise but also Banking and Academic Research (click links opposite for details).

Changing times, moving goals, fluctuating markets and variable demand have led to a need for innovation and initiative in construction consultancy - Blake Wilding is in the forefront.
