Prior to joining Maynard Marks, Rory completed his tertiary qualification at the University of Northumbria in the UK. While studying, Rory undertook a 12-month industrial placement with a building consultancy team in Leeds. His degree course saw him studying modules such as construction technology, building surveying, Building Information Modelling (BIM), planning and building legislation, contract administration, building performance and pathology, sustainable building technologies, and law for building surveyors.  This knowledge, along with the work placement, has created a strong foundation for Rory’s career as a Building Surveyor.

At Maynard Marks, Rory is involved in a wide-range of building surveying work for bodies corporate, private residential owners and commercial and government property managers. This includes condition surveys and reports, dilapidation reports, building defect investigation reports and weather tightness investigations. As a graduate surveyor he is honing his skills and gathering experience in the profession of Building Surveying in New Zealand.

Rory is highly motivated and ambitious; he enjoys providing high quality and timely reports that will deliver value to clients.

Rory’s goals are to become a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors (NZIBS) and, longer term, to become a Chartered and Registered Building Surveyor.
