The Team

Project Manager - The Project Manager is the central point of contact ensuring our risk management keeps pace with your development. The Project Manager takes responsibility for the design review, coordinating all in-house specialists ensuring the most up to date knowledge is applied to all scenarios.

Senior Project Surveyor - Senior Project Surveyors (SPS) undertake the majority of site inspections due to their level of experience and competency in high value, complex schemes. They report to your team the status of the project and any conditions that need to be resolved.

Inspectors - The inspectors undertake the completion inspections and ultimately issue the warranties.
