David joined Robinson & Hall in 1996 and has since become a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. He is the Head of Building Surveying and Planning and has extensive knowledge of construction methods and building use types, both in design and project management of building works.

He advises and acts on all aspects of property, including condition surveys, defect analysis, building regulations, procurement, contract administration and project management. With extensive experience in commercial, agricultural and domestic projects, David’s all round knowledge and background proves particularly valuable where building functionality may change or on mixed-use sites.

David is extensively involved with preliminary planning advice and the preparation of planning applications focused primarily on commercial refurbishments and extensions, together with alterations and works to listed buildings. As the Head of the Planning department he oversees and monitors the range of planning services provided by the firm.

Outside Robinson & Hall, David carries out some voluntary work and is the past President of the Bedfordshire based Surveyors 1921 club. David likes the outdoors, walking with his dogs and supporting his wife at dog agility competitions.
