Mark Tunstall MRICS
"Time flies. It's been twenty years since I first picked up a scale rule and opened the pages of my trusty old SMM7.
It is fair to say I was somewhat 'thrown in at the deep end' in my first job as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor but I loved it from day one. The experiences gained taking-off for Bills of Quantities, counting bricks on site and filling in JCT Contracts in my early years have proven to be invaluable.
Having become a Chartered Quantity Surveyor in 2010, I now enjoy working in the residential sector, with a particular specialism in affordable housing.
My role is varied, from cost consultant and more traditional Quantity Surveying, to Employers Agent and Contract Administrator.
The majority of my clients are either Registered Providers or regional developers across the South West.
I have a wealth of experience in land led and 'Section 106' projects, from small scale redevelopments to joint ventures with PLC developers. Project values range from £250k to £25m+.
Additionally my project portfolio includes specialist supported housing, extra care and care homes as well as estate regeneration.
I take great pride in providing a very high quality of service and strive for continuous improvement.
I have always felt it important to enjoy the work I do and try to seek out interesting opportunities. Indeed this was the driver for me joining Frank Timothy Associates in 2018 and as Director, I am genuinely excited about this new Chapter in my career."
