Kelham Concept is an independent Chartered Building Surveying and Consultancy practice based in Sheffield. Drawing on over a decade of industry experience and expertise, we provide personalised building advice, consultancy and project management services to developers, investors and corporate clients across the UK.   


Putting the personal touch back into construction 


Our journey began in November 2019 with one goal: to be the client-focused construction partner you can count on. 

Having acted on behalf of large corporate clients as well as independent property developers, we strike the perfect balance. Our work is based upon tried-and-tested methods and rigorous processes, but we also maintain a deeply personal and client-centred approach.  

No matter the size or value of a project, you can expect the same personal touch and continuity of support throughout. We protect and promote your personal and professional interests at every stage of the development process. 

In a construction industry that is often overly corporate and detached, all our clients receive a fully bespoke service from experts who truly care about their work and the difference they make.

Joe Elwood 


Connect with Joe on LinkedIn 

Joe’s journey as a surveyor began with him studying Building Surveying at Leeds University in 2009. Following this, he worked at multiple international consultancies, helping clients bring their projects to life with greater confidence and working hard to make the world of planning and construction more accessible. 

Recognising a gap in the market for a surveying and consultancy practice that provides truly bespoke support, Joe founded Kelham Concept in 2019.

Joe brings over 12 years of professional experience that spans all aspects of the built environment and construction industry. His passion for changing the industry for the better, alongside his exceptional eye for detail, makes him a trusted source of support and advice for clients and projects of all shapes and sizes.   

Outside of work, Joe enjoys staying active; he is a keen runner and gym goer. He also enjoys spending his free time with family, which involves a lot of running around after his two young nieces.  

Joe’s unexpected talent: He’s a black belt in Taekwondo.
