Naismiths expands Birmingham team

Naismiths has appointed Josh Ward-Jones (pictured above) as an associate director of building consultancy.

The national firm, which grew its revenue by 26% and expanded its team of chartered surveyors by 37% in 2019, is now bolstering its capability in the Midlands market.

Josh joins Naismiths from JLL, where he joined as a graduate surveyor and later became an associate director.

He served as client relationship manager on several of JLL’s flagship landlord and developer projects.

Gareth Belsham, head of building consultancy at Naismiths, said: “The Midlands is set to be a strategically vital region for the UK’s post Covid-19 economic recovery.

“As the ‘new normal’ becomes clearer, both developers and lenders are identifying opportunities across the Midlands and along the route of HS2. 

“Whenever and wherever they do, Naismiths stands ready to help with a comprehensive range of building consultancy and project monitoring services.

“…Josh is set to make a big impact with our Birmingham-based team of professionals. 

“His combination of local knowledge and national pedigree will be crucial as we boost our building consultancy capability and consolidate our momentum in our fastest-growing market.”
