David Heatherington Partner

Based in our Birmingham office, David can boast 32 years of Building Surveying experience, including seven years at international property consultants GVA Grimley where he was an Associate Partner.  He joined Powell Williams in 2000 and became a partner in 2004.   

David likes the challenge of dilapidations claims and has achieved many successes in this field drawing on his expert negotiation skills.  His personable nature and thorough attention to detail have served our clients well, be they owners or occupiers.  David also enjoys the satisfaction gained from working on repair and refurbishment contracts - seeing new life breathed into a tired property provides a sense of achievement.

What is the best thing about working at Powell Williams? We're very much 'joined up' in our approach across the whole practice, it feels like real teamwork.

What do you feel most passionate about within your working life? I like the variety and diversity of the people I meet and work with be it the Managing Director or the bricklayer.

If you had to stay on a desert island for a month, what one luxury item would you ask to take?
A TV(and a satellite dish) to watch Sky Movies and Sky sport

What three things can't you live without?
Fridays, my motorbike and my lovely partner Trish.

If you hadn't become a surveyor what would you have liked to have done?
Become a farmer - which goes completely against the grain as I have always been a bit of a "townie".
