Specialist surveying and construction consultancy Rund’s Birmingham office has continued to grow this year, marking its most successful period since opening its doors in 2019 at 55 Colmore Row in the city centre. This year, the team has grown to the largest it has ever been and includes six new team members joining since January – the most recent being a Senior Surveyor who joined in April.

Three internal promotions have also been made, with Tom French promoted from Managing Surveyor to Associate Director, Phil Owens from Surveyor to Senior Surveyor, and Milind Page from Assistant Surveyor to Surveyor.

Rund’s growth and investment reflects the company’s expanding presence in the Midlands. Its Birmingham office is currently working on projects across the Midlands and beyond.

Projects include the 30-storey New Makers Yard Build to Rent development on Sherlock Street in Birmingham. Forward funded by Get Living, Rund was appointed as independent project monitor.

Topping out in September 2023 and expected to complete in 2025, New Makers Yard will deliver 551 new homes in a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, 47 of which will be affordable. 

“This is an exciting period of growth for Rund in Birmingham, and we take great pride in establishing ourselves as the consultant of choice in the region. Our team’s performance has been exceptional, with recent internal promotions and new hires demonstrating our commitment to investing in our people and enhancing our service offering for clients. 

“Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and subsequent turbulent period for the construction industry, including rising material costs and supply chain disruptions, the region remains a hub for investment and development, making Birmingham a brilliant location for Rund to operate.

“We pride ourselves in delivering an unrivalled service nationwide and our Birmingham operation is a vital part of our work as a business, working together to meet the needs of construction stakeholders across the country from our bases in London, Bristol, Birmingham and Southampton. Rund has grown significantly in Birmingham to support on major schemes, including in the fast-growing BTR sector, and we’re excited to see what is next for the region and how this will contribute to the shared success of Rund as a whole.”
