Surveyor Bio:
Retrained as a surveyor at the age of 29, & moved to London where I worked for a survey company which introduced me to the broad disciplines of surveying. I also went on a 2 year surveying course which gave me additional theory. I moved back to my home island of Jersey in 2008 and set up on my own where I am kept busy providing topo surveys, elevations, floor plans and setting out. As I primarily work solo it would be good to pool some ideas on projects.
