New appointment: M4 corridor expansion with recent hire, Will Charlton
Powell Williams welcomes
surveyor, Will Charlton, to the London office.
Servicing existing clients
in the South East and southern Midlands, Will is also looking to
develop new business in the South West region over the next 12
Will from Bristol, joins the firm from Workman & Partners.
He was targeted for his expertise in project management, in
particular office refurbishments, overseeing design, contractors,
budgets and acting as lead consultant for institutional clients.
His recent schemes include a £4m refurbishment in Harrow, and the
£1m revamp of an office complex in Bracknell. He also has
significant experience of landlord's dilapidations
and acquisition work, together with other core building
He said: "It's not often you get the chance to be
part of the growth of a business in this way, and I'm eager to get
started helping the business develop its South West market. Most of
my experience so far is in project management, contracts
administration and acting as client's agent, within retail and
office markets. Powell Williams has such a broad range of services
and sectors, I'm really looking forward to developing as a
surveyor, working alongside the firm's highly respected and
extremely knowledgeable senior partners."
His appointment opens a number of opportunities for
the firm, said lead partner Andrew Marshall: "Project management
and refurbishment is a huge growth area for us at the moment, as
clients seek to make use of our lifecycle proposition, looking
after the building's requirements from acquisition to disposal.
Many of our investment fund clients are upgrading newly acquired
stock and long-held assets to meet the demand of ever more
demanding occupiers, and improve values ahead of future sales.
Will's experience is ideal for these instructions and gives us
additional breadth within the team to take on more such schemes
"His arrival is also timely as we continue looking
towards expansion. This year saw the launch of our new Leeds
office, the success of which has been remarkable and has already
required additional support to deal with the growing workload. The
next natural location is the South East and the M4 corridor which
offers both opportunity for growth and gives a geographic spread
which matches that of our large institutional and occupier clients.
Having offices right across the country aligns with their
requirements and gives Powell William the scope to take on
additional work for funds, developers and occupiers active in those
