He continues to serve as the PCA’s Northern Regional Chairman.

He is recognised as being one of the North West’s foremost authorities in damp and timber problems and it’s not unusual to see him appearing on TV. He was invited to take part with Nick Knowles and the team on DIY SOS: The Big Build, when they transformed a property in Manchester for a war veteran and he also appeared on BBC News when he was involved with an innovative flood resilience project in Cumbria which recently won the Environment Agency’s project excellence award for climate resilience.

Andrew is also involved with Founders 4 Schools, and mentors and inspires young students about to embark on their career journey.

Andrew loves surveying and putting on his overalls and providing all his clients with a thorough, comprehensive and professional service.

When not at work, which isn’t that often, Andrew enjoys keeping fit at his local gym and is a keen cyclist.  He loves spending time with his family and tries to escape with them as much as possible.
