UK Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants Graham + Sibbald have announced the opening of their fifth English office. The company, which has been going from strength to strength, is on an upward growth trajectory with client demand at an all-time high.
Heading up their new Bristol office, Graham + Sibbald have welcomed John Gardner as a Director, specialising in the provision of Building Surveying services from dilapidations, contract administration, schedule of condition surveys and technical due diligence to name but a few.
The wider Graham + Sibbald Technical Services offering includes Architectural, Project Management, Quantity Surveying with additional input from specialist services such as Planning and Carbon + Sustainability. With the new Bristol office base, the teams will be able to provide a full range of services to clients in a time efficient and cost effective manner on a variety of projects.
Having studied at the University West of England, John Gardner obtained a BSc (Hons) in Construction and Property Management, going on to complete post graduate degree in Building Surveying. John also boasts experience in engineering having spent some time working in the motor industry before shifting his career pathway towards property.
John’s professional career started with CS2 Limited, Chartered Surveyors, where he spent nearly a decade and oversaw the running of their Bristol office. Now, John is keen to utilise his skills and specialised knowledge to develop the Graham + Sibbald brand across Bristol and the South West of England. He commented,
“This is a very exciting time for me as I take on the responsibility of the new Graham + Sibbald Bristol office. It was time for me to take on a new challenge and the opportunity with G+S was one that I simply could not pass up. The values of G+S were a huge part of what of attracted me to join the team, and I look forward to providing our clients with the creative solutions they need in an ever changing and challenging business environment.”
“One of the elements of G+S that most excites me is our Carbon + Sustainability division. The team are committed to working collaboratively with clients to allow them to take control of their energy costs; and to assist them in delivering our collective UK goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, hopefully sooner! There are challenging times ahead, but I’m relishing the opportunity to make a real difference in such a fantastic City.”
