Our professional in-house staff are supported by the hands-on senior management team.
BSc (QS), MBA (PM), A.I.Q.S.S.L, Managing Director
Jayavilal graduated from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka firstly in 1996 with an RICS Accredited BSc (QS) and subsequently in 2009 with an MBA in Project Management. In 2021, he was admitted to the IQSSL as a Corporate Member. His local experience includes 5 years with the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) as Senior QS and Project Coordinator for internationally funded projects from feasibility study to project completion, and 4 years with Cyril Sweet International, Sri Lanka as an Associate Director – Cost Consultancy. This, combined with his 5 years in the UAE and Qatar working for fit-out contractors on the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, the Hilton Creek and Grand Hyatt in Dubai, the Four Seasons Resort in Egypt and the Ritz Carlton in Qatar, and commercial complexes; has enabled him to successfully lead the day-to-day operations of the company, as Managing Director, since its establishment in 2013. However, Jayavilal continues to act as Client’s QS and provide Project Management support, for example on the US$ 60 million NIIBS (Buddhist Studies) University project. Our company’s ongoing success is directly attributable to his dedication and professionalism to provide our clients, whoever and wherever they may be, and regardless of their size, with the best in class services. Jayavilal’s energy and ability to inspire our staff means we are in good hands as we enter a new decade and all the challenges it brings to the construction industry.
Dip QS, MRICS., International Director
Nigel spent his formative years in the UK gaining excellent experience with Currie & Brown and his Chartered RICS status. Nigel’s desire to work overseas led him to join Northcroft Middle East LLC, working in Qatar and the UAE for more than 30 years rising to GM and Partner. His attraction to Sri Lanka grew through 20 years of visits, primarily recruiting staff for the Middle East offices of that company. Moonstone Cost Consultants (PVT) Ltd was born through the opportunities that arose, especially the market competitiveness that a Sri Lankan based company, mainly staffed by QS’s having an RICS accredited BSc Degree, combined with finding like-minded and professional business partners. Nigel takes an active role in business development, provides advice regarding service delivery, and shares his considerable knowledge and experience to mentor the staff. He also ensures we provide best practice to keep us ahead of our competition, help us attract new clients, and bring repeat business from our existing ones. Nigel is widely respected for his professionalism and integrity; cornerstones of some of our company principles that help to reinforce our aim to be a preferred service provider.
BSc (QS) Hons, PDDip (CPM), F.I.Q.S.S.L, MRICS, Associate Director
Our capabilities and market reach have been enhanced by the recent appointment of Devika as an Associate Director. Devika is a highly respected Sri Lankan QS who achieved MRICS status in 2005 and has been running her own locally registered QS company for the past 4 years. Apart from her extensive QS experience of nearly 25 years, including working for Mott MacDonald in Dubai from 2004 to 2006, Devika’s specialist skills include acting as a procurement and claims specialist on road and rail projects and a Defence HQ project of 268,000m2 gfa, being an Adviser to Tender Boards of Government sector construction projects, and has been a Visiting University Lecturer. Somehow Devika still finds time to serve the Institute of Quantity Surveyors Sri Lanka and the Construction Industry Development Authority. Devika’s decision to join us is an important development in the next chapter of the company’s strategic plans.
BSc (QS) Hons, Associate Director
Roy was our first employee and has willingly taken on more responsibility as we have thrived over that past 7 years in his positions of Manging Surveyor and Head of Pre-contract. His well-rounded pre and post contract experience, including 5 years with Mott Macdonald in Dubai working on infrastructure and building projects, and his academic knowledge obtained through achieving an Edexcel accredited HND, and a BSc from Sheffield Hallam University, UK, has rightly led him to be highly respected by his staff and valued by his peers and the Board of Directors. Roy’s innate ability to lead our Pre-contract team, his attention to detail and drive for us to introduce and embrace the latest standards, procedures and technologies are some of his many professional attributes. Every successful company needs a Roy, and we are grateful for his continuing, invaluable contribution which has led to his recent promotion to Associate Director.
BScQS, I.Q.S.S.L, Founding Director (deceased)
Bernard was a well known and equally well respected Quantity Surveyor in Sri Lanka, having unselfishly helped numerous organisations and individuals that approached him. Some years after returning home from working for Northcroft Middle East in Qatar, he introduced the other two founding Directors that led to the birth of Moonstone. Bernard tragically passed away in February 2016, we are eternally grateful to his contribution. We miss him.
