About Matt

17 years practicing in a professional consultancy as a Chartered Building Surveyor, but over 30 years experience in the construction industry overall.

I initially worked for several building companies of various sizes and some larger civil engineering contractors, in a variety of roles up to site foreman, before returning to studies and changing my site boots for brogues. This wide experience has given me an invaluable appreciation of the construction industry.

In construction I gained practical experience in the following areas:
Drainage and deep excavations
Groundworks, earth movements and landscaping
Piling and heavy plant
Water Purification systems
Steelfixing & reinforced concrete - Multi-storey and retaining structures
Structural frames
Concrete Finishing
Paving
Site Supervision
Health & Safety

In profesional practice:
Building defect investigations and diagnosis - Masonry, concrete and steel frames buildings
Concrete testing and assessment
Historic buildings and facade restoration (inc. Steel frame corrosion)
Party wall surveying - Building Owner's, Adjoining Owner's and Agreed Surveyor
Writing bespoke specifications and schedules of work
Contract administration - Building, repair, refurbishment and demolition projects
Planned and Preventative Maintenance Schedules
Dilapidations
