The Newcastle office at Silverstone Building Consultancy has appointed Martin Bradley as Chartered Building Surveyor.

His arrival follows the recent appointment of Michael McMahon as a graduate building surveyor and Bradley Wild as a chartered building surveyor at its Leeds office.

Martin from Bedlington, Northumberland, joins from Newcastle University, where he worked in the estates and facilities department.

Silverstone Building Consultancy is a specialist firm of chartered building surveyors and project managers, with offices in Leeds and Newcastle and currently employs 16 staff.

Its reputation for the successful delivery of projects, has been built on four core values of reliability, integrity, competence and approachability, which guide its recruitment strategy, commercial transactions, behaviours and actions.

Martin, said: “Silverstone Building Consultancy has a very solid reputation in the local surveying network and I kept hearing positive reviews from some of the team that I already knew.

“The fact it is an independent firm appealed to me as did the clear progression routes that are available to all staff. I wanted the opportunity to get more involved in the commercial side of surveying and to broaden my overall experience

“There is a great energy and a real can-do spirit within the office. The team are confident and ambitious but at the same time recognise that success is only truly possible through a strong team culture. I am really looking forward to supporting our ongoing projects and see this move as a great opportunity to develop my career.”

Director, Richard Farrey, said: “It is very reassuring to know that Martin had received good reviews about the company from friends of his that work here. Reputation means everything in business. It is not won easily and there are a number of connecting factors that contribute to it. In the case of Silverstone, we believe it has much to do with our commitment to our core values, which are at the heart of all our interactions.

“We felt that Martin was the perfect fit for our culture and we are delighted to provide him with the opportunity to move to the next stage of his career in an environment that very much encourages personal development and growth.”
