Nick Smith

Head of Building Surveying

Nick brings a wealth of experience in contracting and consultancy to his role as Head of Business Surveying and considers his biggest strength is in communication.

As a Chartered Surveyor and experienced professional, he has gained a valuable insight into the needs and requirements of the project stakeholders, so he is able to talk effectively to clients whether they are the end user, commissioner or contractor. Nick initially trained as a boat builder for four years in Lowestoft, before taking the decision to retrain as a building surveyor, studying part-time at Anglia Ruskin University.

He joined Concertus is July 2016 having spent six years as lead Building Surveyor at John Burke Associates based in Milton Keynes. Over his career, he has worked on a wide portfolio of commercial, education, leisure, retail and residential projects, ranging from maintenance projects to multi-million pound developments.

In addition to managing and overseeing all building surveying projects, Nick sees two of his main responsibilities as ensuring the continued development of his team and enhancing their collaborative working across the business as a discipline.
