Drake and Kannemeyer conceived the idea of Condition Surveys for Public Sector estates, carrying out surveys of the health estate and a pilot survey of 8 UK Universities. In 1992, their joint venture company KDK carried out the survey of all UK Universities comprising 13 million square metres of estates in a 4-month contract. To date, the practice has appraised over one quarter of the entire hospital stock in England and Wales, in excess of 120 Universities and also a number of historic buildings such as The Tower of London, Royal Naval College Greenwich and the Royal Maritime Museum.
The Partners are delighted to welcome Oliver Kannemeyer as a Partner to the practice. Oliver has worked for the firm since leaving University and successfully obtained MRICS membership last year. Oliver will be heading up the design office and continuing his work carrying out Party Wall Awards and general Building Surveying work.
The firm is pleased to announce that we have been accredited to the North East Procurement Organisation NEPRO neutral vendor solution. They procure professional services on behalf of the UK public sector in an efficient, controlled and compliant way.
