Nick Matthews has gained over 30 years experience as a Building Surveyor working in the Bath area, as well as more rurally throughout Wiltshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire and further afield.
His primary skills lie with undertaking alterations, extensions, refurbishments or improvements to existing buildings. He is a former director and co-founder of Batterham Matthews Architects, and takes that wealth of experience and knowledge with him into all new projects to achieve carefully designed and practical buildings.
He has a particular interest in how buildings are serviced and heated, and has been responsible for numerous successful designs and installations of electrical, drainage and conventional or alternative heating systems within houses and small commercial buildings.
He is able to offer full feasibility; pre-application; planning and listed building applications; Building Regulations; working drawings; specification; tender and on-site monitoring as part of any service, including agreeing and certifying construction work for payment.
Nick has extensive experience of building and contractual problems, and uses his knowledge and enquiring nature to arrive at practical outcomes.
More recently he has been involved with Part P and Part Q planning related approvals.
