Stuart graduated in 2002 with a BA (Hons) Business Studies degree.  Following a period of travelling, Stuart embarked on a career in Building Control with a Local Authority. This gave him the opportunity to train as a Building Control Surveyor whilst undertaking a further degree course in BSc (Hons) Building Control Surveying, graduating with First Class Honours in 2009.

The 9 years he then spent working for Local Authority Building Control provided a good introduction to both commercial and residential projects of varying nature which led Stuart to being involved with large commercial projects in a variety of sectors including multi-million pound developments in the education and pharmaceutical industries.  Notable projects include the redevelopment of Connaught Park, Bushey – 100 acre site, Grade II Listed (regularly used as the setting for TV and films including Harry Potter) and more recently a Grade II* Listed mansion house (originally built for the Quaker poet, John Scott) built in 1750 to flats in Ware, Hertfordshire.

Stuart became a full member of the RICS in 2012 and CABE in 2017.  He joined London Building Control in 2013 and is now Area Manager – Hertfordshire managing a team of surveyors and administration staff.
