“Our surveying services, for a wide range of building projects and property transactions, continue to be in demand. This is also leading to more enquiries for the associated architectural technology support we can offer our clients.

Rachael joins Jones Melling from Liverpool-based Ridge and Partners where she was a building surveyor. She has expertise in building condition surveys and reinstatement cost assessments.

Daniel joins from Trident Building Consultancy where he was assistant building surveyor. His expertise includes dilapidations, pre-acquisition advice, planned preventative maintenance, condition surveys and life-cycle maintenance.
