Oliver Wood

Regional Surveying Manager (North), BSc(Hons) MRICS C.Build E MCABE

My work background:

After graduating at Sheffield Hallam University in 2012, I worked for a national Approved Inspector as a Graduate Surveyor working my way up through the ranks to an Area Manager at their Head Quarters. During this time, I developed my skills and experience in all aspects of the profession with strong experience in Residential, Commercial, Industrial/Warehouse and Mixed-Use Projects, managing a wide variety of projects nationally. I achieved MRICS status in 2016 and I am also a Chartered Member of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers.

I Joined Cook Brown Building Control in October 2019 to launch the Leeds Office, to strengthen their presence in the “North”. The office workload has continued to grow, and I now appointed on some interesting schemes. I am also an RICS APC Assessor for the Building Control Pathway.

About my role:

My role is varied, and no day is the same. Ranging from Site Inspections and the day-to-day element of being a Building Control Surveyor to attending networking events and keeping in contact with clients.

About me:

Outside of work, I am a keen skier and competitive golfer.
