We reach new heights at the Gherkin

As a leading independent property surveying practice, we unveiled our new corporate structure and strapline at the Gherkin skyscraper in London.
We held the invitation-only showcase in the exclusive Searcys private members’ club at the top of the iconic London landmark.
Our Managing Director Bill McAndrew and Director of Surveying London Gareth Pryce outlined our multidisciplinary services and explained the concept behind our new motto, ‘Professional Solutions by Design’.
This bold development reflects our ambitious growth plans and strengthens our position in the London market and across the South.
Managing Director Bill said: “I’ve worked on buildings in London for 40 years and over the years have gained a detailed understanding of what clients want.
“They require someone working closely with them to deal with the issues and opportunities they may have for any particular property or site.
“Our new strapline identifies exactly how we do this, which is designing solutions that apply specifically to their needs, to ensure they achieve their objectives.
“It’s an ethos we have taken on board as a company and have developed six separate disciplines within the business all headed by highly experienced senior professionals in their own right.
“This will allow us to deliver a seamless multi-disciplinary service for any project from beginning to end as well as bespoke solutions to meet client requirements.”
The six disciplines outlined at the showcase were:
• Building Surveying
• Project Management and Contract Administration
• Mechanical and Electrical Engineering
• Structural Engineering
• Architecture
• General Practice

They allow us to meet individual client requirements and provide an overarching service with full end to end design solutions.
Director of Surveying London Gareth added: “Our showcase was a tremendously successful event at a fitting venue for a business of the calibre of McAndrew Martin.
“Our great thanks to all of our staff for their hard work in arranging the event and to the guests who came along to help us celebrate the dawn of a new era as we look forward to an exciting future.”
Guests enjoyed canapés, refreshments and networking as well as drinks and stunning 360 views from the bar at the tip of the Gherkin.
There was also a presentation from our Director of Architecture James Bengree about the ground-breaking design of the Gherkin.
Key directors of each discipline were on hand, including Lee Sergeant, Bruce Scott, James Bengree and Noor Awan.
Other senior members of our management team at the event included Director of General Practice Ian Lee and Director of Operations Sam Rix.
Gareth Pryce led the event after joining us earlier this year.
Experienced Chartered Surveyor Gareth joined us from Interserve where he was Head of Projects South.
We’re also in the process of opening an office in London shortly.
Over the past 25 plus years, we have carried out work at the Horse Guards Parade building, Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, the Tower of London, the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the Queens Flight, Churchill’s Bunker and the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Headley Court.
These projects have included major works and refurbishment to breathe fresh life into existing buildings and extend their lifecycles.
Our many clients include the Ministry of Defence, Local Authorities, Interserve, Debut, CarillionAmey, McCarthy & Stone, universities, schools, health authorities and private clients.
