Reinstatement Cost Assessment


APA were instructed to prepare a Reinstatement Cost Assessment for Insurance Purposes for this Grade II* Listed residential block. The building was designed by the architect G.E. Street in circa 1880 and is described by Historic England as ‘one of his rare domestic buildings in London’. The building is covered by two separate listings, with one part of the building listed as a Grade II*, whilst the other half of the building falls under the Grade II listing covering the terrace of houses within Cadogan Square.    


What led you to this career?
My passion for building started whilst assisting my father on building sites during the school holidays.  I began my professional career as an Architectural Technician predominantly assisting in the conversion of many barns and churches.  This subsequently developed into a professional Building Surveying career within various organisations, leading teams in delivering quality services to clients in varied areas such as the financial, social housing and private high-end residential sectors.
What energises you about working at APA?
Managing my own company allows all sorts of freedoms and opportunities to streamline my expertise and knowledge.   Creating a hardworking but more importantly supportive environment for others to develop and prosper.  I’m able to change and adapt as necessary and this keeps me enthused about the continued development and growth of APA.
What keeps you busy outside of work?
Away from the office, I can often be found either training for, or participating in events such as triathlons and cycling events around Europe, or a leisurely hike in the hills.  I also enjoy a strange gig or ten, art events and a lovely meal in a fine restaurant.
