Job

I am an Associate Chartered Building Surveyor and Architectural Technologist with Castle Owen, based in Sheffield, principally delivering projects as designer and contract administrator within the educational and commercial sectors.  The schemes are predominantly of refurbishment, alteration, and extensions; of a multi-disciplinary and complex nature, including laboratory, workshop, and delivery of MEP renewals.  Parallel to project delivery, I provide consultancy services for condition survey, defects diagnosis. maintenance strategies, Party Wall matters, principal designer duties, access consultancy, dilapidations, asbestos management, and quality monitoring.

Why I got Involved

As a relatively new member of CIAT, following past student BIAT membership (several years ago !!), it was suggested in my interview that I would be in a position to aid prospective members through their application, having acted as supervisor for RICS APC candidates.  I subsequently attended the committee to get involved, I saw the opportunities for change and development, and wished to contribute to this process.
