RICS Qualified 1998

My building surveying career began with Powell Williams in 1996, and I have developed a wide depth and breadth of knowledge of the profession.

I specialise in acquisition and vendor surveys, and have a clear, analytical approach and reporting style, in order to provide the best possible advice to clients. My involvement with the development of junior surveyors provides great a opportunity to pass on gained knowledge, whilst also keeping me on my toes!
