CS2 makes strategic promotions in the north and west

Leading commercial building and cost consultancy practice CS2, has made two key promotions to further develop and strengthen its team – Ben Walker and Mark Humphries will each take on the role of Director.

Ben, who has been in charge of Manchester office for the last year, has been promoted from associate director to director. During the last 12 months, his branch has grown from two surveyors to five, and doubled its turnover. Ben has more than eight years’ commercial property experience and is a member of the Institution of Fire Engineers, bringing risk assessment and fire engineered solutions expertise to CS2’s clients across the north of the UK. He has guided projects for high-profile clients such as House of Fraser and GB Oils, more recently working with Student Cribs and Urban Bubble Property Management.

Mark’s promotion from associate director to director at CS2’s Bristol office, which turns 10 this autumn, comes as a direct result of the office winning an important contract for Seco Tools International’s portfolio. His promotion allows Mathew Belgrove, director in charge of the Bristol branch, to focus more on project management services, with Mark taking ownership of building surveying. Mark is an honorary fellow at Sheffield Hallam University and member of the RICS Governing Council, and has more than 15 years’ commercial property project management and surveying experience. He has been lead surveyor on several multi-million pound projects, most recently for St Joseph’s College and Adapt Properties.

Andrew Mather, Managing Director at CS2, said: “Ben and Mark have demonstrated their technical and strategic strengths over their years here at CS2. These appointments do more than recognise their many achievements; they reflect the dynamism of our business and our senior team and we believe herald a period of increased and sustained growth. I look forward to working even more closely with Ben and Mark in the months and years ahead.”
