We are delighted to announce Miles Cassidy has now been promoted to Surveyor at Chawton Hill. Previously, he was working with the team as an Assistant Surveyor. His new position means he will be taking a leading role in running projects for our clients. The promotion also means he is more involved in client communication, becoming a direct line of contact for some of our ongoing projects.
Having spent time in events management and working on the design and build of major events such as World Travel Market, Comic-Con and others, Miles made the move to construction in 2021. Miles recalls that his first role on-site with Chawton Hill involved carrying out a measured survey of teaching block at a further education college. On the same site, Miles is now overseeing the delivery of a £500k window replacement project. He is proud to have the opportunity to manage projects from their inception through to completion and handing over to clients.
Another project that Miles was assisting on when he first joined Chawton Hill was the strip-out of the Kingston Riverside Regeneration. Often known as the John Lewis project, Miles is now overseeing the fit out of the former restaurant and nightclub to deliver modern flexible working spaces as part of the wider regeneration strategy for Kingston Council.
Masters in building surveying.
Miles completed a degree in Business Management at Leeds Beckett University in 2017. Following an academic hiatus, he continued his studies again in January 2021 and has now gained his MSc in Building Surveying from the University College of Estate Management in January 2023.
The masters course covered a range of topics including quantity surveying, understanding building defects, and architecture. Miles already had a working knowledge of the skeleton of building surveying going into the course from his experience on-site. He tells us that the course filled in the gaps and he is now able to apply his course to the work he is doing. Our sincere congratulations and thanks to Miles for all his hard work over the last few years.
