Stuart Hawkes Retirement
Stuart Hawkes who has been a Partner of Synergy for over 14 years will be retiring on 31 March 2021.
His diverse project work includes the exceptional new sports centre at Kingham Hill School, The Fowler Pavilion at Framlingham College, The new Junior School Pavilion at St Paul’s School, the refurbished Greek theatre at Bradfield College, dealing with a failed glulam beam at Thornden Hall and the rewarding modernisation and extension of the existing accommodation for Esher Green Baptist Church. He has also supported numerous clients with due diligence, strategic maintenance advice, Party Wall advice, and dilapidations.
During his time at Synergy his managerial responsibilities have included holding the position of Joint Managing Partner, leading our former Hemel Hempstead office, our new London office as well as managing the marketing team at Synergy.
In addition, Stuart has mentored a number of Synergy’s surveyors through the RICS APC process meticulously guiding them through their structured training period and helping them to prepare for successful final assessment.
Duncan Ball, Managing Partner said, “Stuart will be greatly missed from the practice; his hard work and enthusiasm has played a significant role in driving the business forward, we wish him all the best for his retirement”.
Stuart says “I have enjoyed every day of my working life. I chose to be a Building Surveyor because no two days are ever the same and that has definitely been the case throughout my career. Having known the Practice for in excess of 30 years, I was delighted to join the business and it has been a complete pleasure to be part of the Synergy success story which I truly believe will continue. To work with such a hardworking and dedicated team with an unswerving focus for excellence has been humbling. I am now looking forward to putting away my damp meter and scale rule and spending a bit more time on the golf course and travelling indulging in a cruise (or two!).
