Berry Party Wall Surveyors Meeting

Meet Our Expert Team of Specialist Party Wall Surveyors

Berry Party Wall Surveyors are a family run business of expert Party Wall Surveyors founded by Scott Berry and assisted by his two sons Elliot and Jed. They have offices in Dartford, Gravesend and Faversham and cover the whole of London, Kent and the South East Specialising exclusively in Party Wall Matters.

 

Scott started working in the construction industry alongside his father and two brothers upon leaving school where he continued to work for the family business, project managing domestic and commercial building projects, until he had a family of his own. Scott then decided it was time to start his own construction company and so he founded S M Berry Building Contractors Ltd in 1995. The company project managed domestic and commercial extensions, loft conversions and renovations in Dartford, Kent & the London area and Scott steadily built his reputation as a quality Building Contractor. In the following years Scott was delighted to be joined by his two sons, Elliot & Jed, and they continued to build a reputation for excellence in the local area.

 

After running this well-respected & successful Building Construction Company for over 25 years Scott decided to put his expert knowledge of construction to good use and retrain as a Specialist Party Wall Surveyor, gaining Chartered Membership of the Chartered Institute of Building & becoming an Accredited Member of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. 

Scott’s two sons, Elliot & Jed, have again followed in their father’s footsteps and have both moved to the professional side of the industry and joined him as Expert Party Wall Surveyors. They are now both accredited members of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors and are running the companies' offices in Gravesend and Faversham respectively.

As specialist Party Wall Surveyors with decades of experience in construction they endeavour to supply a Gold Standard Service for all Party Wall Matters across London, Kent and the South East and this is borne out by their consistently high 5 star reviews. As Berry Party Wall Surveyors specialise only in Party Wall Matters' they can be highly focused on each individual project and ensure that each project is handled promptly and diligently, keeping building projects moving ahead whilst protecting the interests of the adjoining owners.

Their small team of expert surveyors often liaise with one another from the outset of any project, ensuring potential disputes are handled at the earliest possible moment, reducing the risk of delay & cost as they endeavour to successfully resolve each Party Wall Matter. 

As appointments are made on behalf of either the ‘Building Owner’ (the party carrying out the building work) or by the ‘Adjoining Owner’ (the neighbour affected by the works) they are expertly placed to consider the needs of both sides and to understand the requirements of both parties as they agree the Party Wall Award and resolve the dispute.

By closely monitoring each project, providing realistic schedules to their clients & navigating relevant legislation, they aim to resolve disputes diligently and to serve Party Wall Awards quickly, thus enabling the building works to move ahead and minimise disruption to all parties involved.

Thank you so much for making this quite frankly a very painless process. We had an utter nightmare with party wall issues in London a few years back and I was nervous history would repeat itself! Phew it didn't!
