Freddie gained his first degree in business management, before moving on to study for a master’s in building surveying. However, due to the pandemic, his degree was conducted completely as remote learning. It was difficult as a student not getting that face-to-face time, but it allowed him to develop a stronger sense of independence and meant he spent the lockdown working towards something positive.
Freddie has always been interested in building surveying. Having grown up in London, you have to understand the property market is different to the rest of the country. He comes from a family of property developers, buying and refurbishing small-scale projects, which led him to consider a career in the industry. Freddie finds the technical aspect of building interesting. He is fascinated by the way all the different roles fit together – building surveying is far more than just valuing houses – although we do a lot of that too.
He’s currently shadowing the team, enjoying the opportunity to go to site and watch projects progress. One of the great things about Chawton Hill is the variety of projects we get involved with.
When he’s not working, Freddie loves to travel, recently visiting the Blue Lagoon in Iceland. He’s also an Arsenal fan – but we won’t hold that against him!
