What they add up to is that we are now a truly multi-disciplinary practice. Our new service lines, combined with our existing General Surveying, Quantity Surveying, Party Wall and Rights to Light offering, mean we can meet all our clients’ needs in one truly joined-up service.
I would like you to meet our new colleagues, and learn more about what Earl Kendrick now has to offer:
Oliver Paterson has joined EK London to head up our brand new Structural Engineering division. Oliver is a Chartered Structural Engineer with more than a decade’s experience, including extensive work in the residential sector and on multi-million pound projects across major new-build, refurbishment and change of use developments. Prior to joining Earl Kendrick, he spent six years helping to grow the dynamic young practice Design4Structures to an established SME and gaining valuable experience fronting projects and coordinating the design for residential clients.
As Head of Structural Engineering at Earl Kendrick, he will allow us to offer in-house solutions for clients requiring inspections for a variety of purposes including Party Wall matters and Licence to Alter. In addition, we are now able to offer consultation and design services and to work with architects, contractors and developers on new developments as well as existing buildings. Oliver’s combination of technical expertise with creative flair makes him a perfect fit for Earl Kendrick.
Spiros Savvides has joined EK London to head up our brand new Building Services division. Spiros is a leading light in the mechanical, electrical and plumbing industry. Over the years, he has worked for a large, multi-service contractor working on prestigious projects in London, a dynamic engineering consultancy based in Berkshire and his own small practice specialising in the retail sector.
Throughout his career, Spiros has sought to cultivate lasting relationships with clients, with the result that he has earned an unrivalled reputation for delivery. His passion for going above and beyond the call of duty when looking after clients’ interests means his values and priorities are perfectly aligned with Earl Kendrick’s. Spiros looks forward to working with existing and new clients so they can have absolute confidence when it comes to their building services needs.
James Biley is our new Brand & Marketing Director. I have known James for years, most recently as a key client in his previous role as Head of Block Management at Grainger PLC. While his experience in block management and lettings gives him invaluable insider knowledge of the world of our clients, James is joining Earl Kendrick to pursue his true passion. That’s because he also has an impressive background in advertising and marketing, having worked for many years in Marketing & PR for Countrywide, as well as running his own successful freelance consultancy.
James’ awesome marketing credentials include a former column in Flat Living, ‘Be More Social’, and even a behind-the-scenes role with Sutton Kersh for their property auctions featured in the BBC’s Homes Under the Hammer. He knows his way around the build to rent and private rented sectors as well as anyone, but he also understands how to make the best use of social media to build a brand. Most notably launching The Cargo Building in Liverpool and Pomona Wharf in Manchester. So we look forward to working together to consolidate and build on Earl Kendrick’s leading position in our sector.
Another significant change is that Zoë Walheim moves up into a new position as Group Operations Director. Having been a hugely important part of the team for many years now, Zoë is ideal for the role.
We are also expanding geographically as well as service-wise. Our new office in Exeter will expand the remit of EK West out from Bristol to serve Devon and Cornwall too. I’m originally from that part of the world, so it feels good to be bringing the business ‘home’ with the benefit of so many years’ experience in the capital and beyond.
With all this experience and breadth of expertise, we are also keen to share our knowledge with the wider industry. That includes offering CPD training, so please contact me directly if you have any requirements or opportunities we can look at. I’ll be delighted to help.
Finally, even as Earl Kendrick is growing, we are and will always be committed to providing each and every client with the best possible service. Whatever your particular needs, my fantastic team and I look forward to working with you in 2024!
