7H Chartered Surveyors is owned and operated by Principal Surveyor Alec Roxburgh. Alec has a wide range of experience in Building Surveying across many disciplines and is a fully qualified Chartered Surveyor under the governing body of RICS.
The RICS regulates all aspects of a Chartered Surveyor’s business to ensure high standards are continually maintained by its members. Regulation includes training, ethics, professional indemnity insurance and business skills. Chartered Building Surveyors must complete Continuous Professional Development (CPD) each year to keep their skills up to date.
Alec studied at South Bank University in the mid 1990’s and started his career working for housing trusts and the social housing sector across London. Returning to Sussex he extended his knowledge in this field working for a practice in Uckfield.
Returning to London in the late 1990’s he entered the absolute opposite end of the market working for the respected Cadogan Estate, a family owned estate with large holdings around Sloane Square and Kings Road, Chelsea. In his capacity as an Estate Surveyor he gained experience in high value residential refurbishment, retail and commercial premises.
In 2004 Alec moved to New Zealand and became involved in large scale residential construction failure, which included a great deal of litigation and expert witness work. Furthering his experience he took on the management of a national commercial surveying consultancy, managing all aspects of the business and travelling across New Zealand and Australia.
In 2010 Alec returned to England to establish 7H Chartered Surveyors.
