The Team

David Clayton

David is the 'quiet achiever' in the team. He loves timber frames, having lived in, and restored one of his own. He has studied extensively, and has a degree in timber frames.... and a few other degrees as well - he and Pete have both enjoyed another life in the resources industry working with rocks, and big machines..! 

Garry Featherstone

Garry is our Northern manager. Pete met him many years ago on a very windswept (and covered in sea spray!) building conservation project in Redcar when they worked on a building that had been seriously damaged by rusing of ironwork within the masonry. Garry has a project management background, and is a member of the CIOB. His northern humour never fails to raise a smile...!

Sarah Shuttleworth

Sarah is the engine room of our little group. Buying and selling properties can be stressful. Sarah is one of those 'listening' people who understands the needs of our clients, and works with them to sort out our surveys. It's often a complicated process - arrangements with agents, owners, access - and in some cases sorting out accommodation for surveyors in uncharted parts of the Western Isles.. Sarah had a series of phone calls recently from a lady who had issues with dampness in an old house - she came up with some suggested solutions, and eventually, her client suggested we take a look at the house. We did a damp survey on a lovely old farmhouse, and it turned out that there were plans to damp proof it at great cost. A couple of ventilation fans solved the problem.  We now help look after her country Estates, Manors and farms. 

David Smith

David has only recently jointed us - his boundless enthusiasm, and rapidly growing knowledge of old buildings is great to see. Having worked in a previous life for Savills, he understands the property management market well.  He's completing his Building Conservation degree at the moment, and handles many of our surveys in the London and Southn Eastern area of the country. 

Our surveyors are Regulated by RICS
