RICS & SPAB Building Conservation Summer School

1st October 2018

Our MD, John McGrath, has just attended the RICS & SPAB Building Conservation Summer School at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. The course was run over 5 days and included seminars and practical “hands-on” training. Ongoing training and development is of paramount importance as a practising Building Surveyor, every day is a school day! The photos below were taken during a visit to Woodchester Mansion, which is an unfinished Gothic property, it is like travelling back in time and setting foot on a Victorian building site, well worth a visit.



Paris to Liverpool is complete!

Paris to Liverpool is complete!
What was already a daunting task was made even harder by the current hot weather with the 10 riders consuming 100 litres of water a day!
The ride was completed on Sunday and there was a large crowd at the Crosby Lakeside Centre to welcome home our MD, John, and the rest of the riders.
The fundraising target of £10,000 was exceeded, which was great news.
Plans are already being made for next year, watch this space….
