Nicholas Yates BSc (Hons) MRICS



Happy and energetic - especially when it comes to exploring new places. Keen snowboarder and sailor although both are made significantly better with some sunny weather and a cold beer! 


Refurbishment projects in their various guises both as Contract Administrator or Project Manager. I have a long standing experience in dealing with industrial and retail projects but have completed a growing number of city centre office refurbishments.  

I had a ‘traditional’ education in the technical aspects of building surveying that has carried though my career meaning I enjoy solving technical problems. With a broad experience in due diligence both for investment acquisitions and leasehold interests, I always enjoy getting my hands on a new building. 

I’m told I have a particular talent in tackling portfolio instructions both with surveys and reinstatement cost assessments. I enjoy the organisation and interaction with multiple parties . . . a little pressure from time to time is always good fun.

What makes you get up in the morning?

Variation in life - a new building, a new project, a new restaurant! Life is too short to do the same things everyday and although every job has its dull days it seems that most days as a surveyor offer something new to see or think about. 

Modus operandi

Be friendly, be organised, be thorough – the end result will speak for itself.
