was formed in 2012 by Andrew Watson
BSc (Hons) MRICS, who has been working as a self-employed Chartered Building Surveyor for
a portfolio of valued clients since 2003.
Having gained a first class honours degree in
Building Surveying in 1994, Andrew was trained by Watts, one of the UK’s leading building
surveying firms. He qualified as a Chartered Building Surveyor in 1995 and was promoted
to Associate level at Watts in 1997.
He left Watts in 2001 and worked in a small/medium
sized building surveying firm in Buckinghamshire, before becoming a self-employed
Chartered Building Surveyor in 2003.
Andrew has formed as a small, niche Building Surveying
Consultancy to provide a professional and quality building surveying service, with
particular emphasis on the following:
Providing continuity of involvement:
Andrew will take the client’s instruction and
carry out all of the related professional building surveying work. Clients thus have both
a single point of contact and single point responsibility. Clients also know that focus
will be maintained on their requirements at all times and that the company will also
always be aware of and up to date with the status of progress on each
Adopting a personal approach:
Andrew enjoys carrying out work in this sector of
the industry and is proud that his retained clients value his appreciation of the nature
of their own roles and the demands of their particular property portfolio. His clients
also appreciate the time which is always taken to attend meetings and to explain and
resolve issues face to face with clients and their on-site staff, building tenants etc as
and when they arise.
Being pro-active and forward
Andrew recognises that his clients value people
who not only work hard in order to meet the demands of their own in-house clients,
tenants etc, but also who will be pro-active in their work and bring to their attention
building fabric related issues which they themselves are not always aware
Andrew recognises that it is not always possible
to carry our instructions in a timely manner by working from 0900 to 1730 on weekdays
only. Therefore, his working hours are flexible to meet clients’ needs and attendance at
early morning or evening meetings, inspections etc can normally be easily accommodated.
Site inspections are also sometimes undertaken on a Saturday morning in order to assist
in the smooth progress and timely completion of any projects.
