Building Control Surveyor
My work background:
I started work as a Trainee Building Surveyor for a Property Developer prior to spending a few years working as a Building Control Surveyor for an Approved Contractor. I then worked as Project Manager for a Design and Build company based in North West London prior to joining the Cook Brown team.
About my role:
As one of the Surveyors within the London team, I am responsible for providing an excellent service to all my appointed clients and assisting them to achieve compliance in a positive and collaborative way. My role involves undertaking Plan Assessments, Site Inspections and offering Technical Advice throughout the life cycle of a project. From my background as a Building Contractor and working with various Building Control Inspectors, I found that apart from their technical knowledge, the attributes of diligence, responsiveness, pragmatism and honesty were key and these are values I try to uphold in my current role.
Outside of work, my time is mostly spent with my partner and daughter. We have recently acquired an allotment, so we are currently spending a lot of time down there in a fierce and bloody battle with weeds, moles, and slugs.
My Dad is a Builder and my Mum owned an Estate Agency whilst I was growing up. I spent a lot of my adolescence ‘earning my keep’ by working with both and receiving an early education in Property and Construction. Some might say a misspent youth!
