HARRIS LAMB APPOINTS GRADUATE SURVEYOR TO BUILDING CONSULTANCY TEAM
Harris Lamb has expanded its Building Consultancy team with the appointment of a Graduate Surveyor.
Sam Kowalik has joined the business further to completing a Masters degree at Liverpool John Moores University in Commercial Building Surveying and gaining practical experience of site management with a residential developer.
He now plans to further his professional qualifications with the support of his colleagues.
Sam, who has just commenced the rigorous process of working towards his APC (Assessment of Professional Competence) to achieve accreditation from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, said that Harris Lamb’s strong mentoring programme had been one of the key factors that attracted him to the business.
“I’m very committed to advancing my career within the commercial property sector, and Harris Lamb’s reputation for providing both in-house mentoring and practical experience to help graduates work toward the APC and further opportunities for career progression is well known throughout the sector.
“The business is also involved in a diverse range of commercial projects throughout the UK, which will provide broad exposure to buildings and instructions of all sizes, which will advance both my hands-on experience and my knowledge within the field,” he added.
Prior to achieving his MSc in Building Surveying, Sam graduated from the University of Chester with a Business Management degree, and post-graduation has worked as a contacts manager at a maintenance firm and as a trainee site manager for Countryside Properties to gain on-the-ground experience.
Paul Wells, Director of the business’ Building Consultancy department, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed Sam to the team, where he’ll be supporting his colleagues with a whole range of commercial and industrial instructions. He joins us at an exceptionally busy time, and we are pleased that he is so committed to developing his learning and progressing his career with us.
“Sam’s experience of the field to date, teamed with his business knowledge, will prove a big asset to the team, and we’re looking forward to supporting him as he works towards his goals,” he added.
