Hampshire County Council Building Surveyor shortlisted for prestigious national award

A Hampshire County Council Building Surveyor has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award celebrating the most inspirational young surveying professionals in the UK.

Surveyor Peter Moore is among eight finalists in the public sector/ academia category of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Matrics Young Surveyor of the Year awards.

Leader of Hampshire County Council, Councillor Roy Perry, said:

“My congratulations go out to Peter for being shortlisted for this high profile award from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveys – it is a fantastic achievement. To receive a nomination in this category demonstrates the high calibre of staff we have working here at Hampshire County Council, and our commitment to providing first-class public buildings for the people of Hampshire. We wish Peter the very best of luck in the competition, when the winner is announced next month.”

Peter Moore has worked on several high-profile projects since joining County Council’s Property Services team – notably leading on the project management, design and development of Hayling College, just 12 months after qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor. For this particular project, Peter delivered a complete recladding and re-roofing of the school, as well as refurbishing specialist teaching spaces for design and technology classes, including resistant materials, 3D printing and electronics.

When asked about his nomination, Peter said:

“I was honoured to be nominated and can’t believe I’ve made it this far. For property professionals, the public sector can sometimes be overlooked as a career choice, so it’s fantastic to see a public sector category for such a prominent and well-respected industry award.”

The winner will be announced at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors award ceremony in mid-November.
