Registered Building Surveyor, Chartered Architectural Technologist
Over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry in both the UK and New Zealand both as a building surveyor and a designer who previously managed an architectural service bureau. I lead the Auckland building surveying team and have provided the full range of building surveying services across multiple building types from single dwellings and multi-storey apartment complexes through to commercial and industrial buildings, schools, universities and historic buildings.
My specialist areas of expertise include helping legal professionals and insurers to resolve complex or difficult claims, including providing advice on reinstatement or repair works. I also work closely with the Building Practitioners Board, both when investigating complaints and assessing applicants who wish to become licensed.
As a result of my architectural background, I can identify the source of an issue – be it from design or construction and effectively develop a scope of work to enable projects to be managed from design through to site, remaining as a single point of contact for clients.
Managing the Auckland building surveyors involves understanding client needs, allocating, managing and peer-reviewing work and being the point of escalation for any concerns.
