We are delighted to announce that two new team members have been appointed over the summer, bolstering our team across several of our key service areas. Warren Hirst has joined us as a Building Surveyor & Valuer, bringing a wealth of experience from a decade in the property sector. In addition, Mattie Holden has taken up a position as an Assistant Building Surveyor to assist our teams and gain experience as part of his Building Surveying degree.

The two new team members join us following a sustained period of organic growth for the firm.

Warren Hirst joined our Survey & Valuation team in June 2023. Warren carries out residential property inspections for a range of clients to produce Valuation Reports, Homebuyer Reports and Building Survey Reports.

Mattie Holden has joined us as an Assistant Building Surveyor whilst on his placement year whilst studying for a Building Surveying degree. During his time with us, Mattie will be focussing on commercial property and school work; undertaking site inspections to monitor the progress of ongoing construction projects, and condition assessments of existing buildings. Alongside this, Mattie will gain a variety of experience by undertaking many different aspects of Building Surveying, for a mix of different clients and property types.

Paul Dignan commented:

“The appointment of Warren and Mattie is a reflection of where we are as a firm at this time. We have a strong and steady workload and having experienced team members to pick up work and complete inspections and reports to a high standard is key to maintaining our excellent reputation in the region. However, we also remain committed to developing the Chartered Surveyors of tomorrow – hopefully to join our team on a long-term basis as part of our continual growth.

“We warmly welcome Warren and Mattie to the team as they embark on their journey with us.”
