Partner, Building Surveying
Chartered Building Surveyor with over 25 years’ experience in the property and construction industry, both in the private and public sectors.
Adrian is the Partner responsible for Building Surveying within our Reading office, with particular expertise in the commercial, leisure and education sectors.
His varied experience includes: traditional surveying services such as due diligence, acquisition surveys, dilapidations and maintenance planning; architectural design for a wide range of refurbishment and conversion projects; and project management and contract administration roles.
Our experience within the education sector stretches from primary schools through to further and higher education establishments. As a multidiscipline practice, our roles are wide and varied, from helping small pre-schools with replacing a roof, through to master planning and delivery of new schools and higher education facilities.
Our extraordinary depth of experience in this fast-moving market allows us to bring leading-edge thinking to every project. And, whilst we have supported a huge variety of projects, the one constant priority has been ensuring that, in everything we do, our work benefits the students and the teaching staff.
Our understanding of the needs of education clients, and the importance of stakeholder management, has led to Ridge being appointed to provide a dedicated team to the Department for Education to deliver a significant programme of new schools.
We provide extensive support to academies for CIF funding and the delivery of CIF funded projects, ranging from new windows and boilers through to expansion projects. Our understanding of the CIF funding process has enabled Ridge to help secure more than £30million worth of funding over the last three years.
We also have extensive experience in assisting with the strategic management of education estates. We understand the budgetary pressures and the need to prioritise capital expenditure. Our Building Surveyors and Engineers undertake frequent condition surveys and asset surveys, allowing us to prepare asset management plans and databases to assist with this critical requirement within the sector.
