Pre-Acquisition Survey & Project Management 


APA were instructed to produce a Pre-Acquisition Report of this Grade II Listed Georgian town house located in W1.  Once the client had purchased the property their intention was to add value to their acquisition and APA were subsequently commissioned to act as project managers and explore opportunities to maximise the client’s investment. 

Following our appointment, we developed a client brief and undertook a consultation process with several architects, following which we led an interview process with the shortlisted architectural practices to assess their feasibility studies in line with the client’s brief.  We are now working alongside the preferred architect to develop their scheme and deliver the brief.


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.
