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.
As a multidiscipline practice, our wide-ranging roles cover the maintenance of fabric and services; master planning and delivery of new buildings; and the refurbishment of existing facilities. Our depth of experience in this ever-evolving environment allows us to bring innovative and leading-edge thinking to each project, with a constant focus on ensuring our work benefits students, staff and wider stakeholder groups.
Understanding our clients’ needs and the importance of stakeholder management resulted in Ridge being appointed to provide a dedicated team of technical advisors to the Department for Education to deliver a significant programme of new schools. We also provide extensive support to Academies to secure Condition Improvement Funding (CIF), and to deliver those funded projects – from new windows, fire safety improvements and de-carbonisation through to expansion schemes. Our understanding of the process has helped us secure more than £30m in CIF and SALIX funding.
We also have wide-ranging experience assisting with the strategic management of education estates due to our understanding of budgetary cycles and the need to maximise capital expenditure. Our Building Surveyors and Engineers frequently undertake condition and asset surveys so we can prepare asset management plans and databases, which support proactive management of the buildings and grounds.
We look forward to collaborating on your education project.
“Our teams at Ridge take great pride in applying their in-depth knowledge of the education sector to bring best-in-class thinking and passion to every project,” Paul Harding, Partner.
