With every property transaction, building project and deal there is always a large number of skills and professions involved in order to see them through to a satisfactory conclusion. It is very often the case that within those transactions the efforts of one individual shins through above others as the driving force to see them succeed. There are individuals in most practices who are behind the scenes and don’t always receive the recognition and this award, as part of the Nottingham Post Business Awards, is there to allow them to be recognised.
As Building Surveyors we are often part of such teams and regularly see these individuals that make our lives easier and we are delighted to support this award and recognise those individuals within the business community.
