Naylors commercial property consultancy has announced a double appointment as part of its expansion strategy.
The Newcastle-based firm has appointed Viv Walker as Property Manager following a number of new management instructions. Viv is responsible for liaising with tenants and contractors to ensure that the firm’s extensive management portfolio is managed to a high standard. With a background in electrical planning, Viv managed a nationwide team of 8 people for 5 years before joining Naylors.
She commented: “From the outset I was impressed with the Naylors’ work ethics. This is a very varied role but one which I am really enjoying. My experience enables me to ensure that tenants are happy and buildings are operating smoothly.”
The firm has also appointed Martin Watson as building surveyor to work within the facilities management and building consultancy teams. Martin is responsible for managing over 30 properties across the North East and Yorkshire. His role involves carrying out building surveying related tasks including reactive maintenance inspections, as well as the planning and design of new projects.
Martin said: “I have an interest in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and how digital tools can help to improve the design, construction and management of buildings. I am currently looking to see how BIM can be used to help the management of buildings at Naylors.”
