About us

AWP Consulting, Project Manager and Chartered Surveyor York, Harrogate and Yorkshire.

AWP Consulting was set up in 2001 by John Allen. Starting with a degree in Building Technology and later adding building surveying and management qualifications, he has worked in contracting, property management and consultancy.

We remain a small, single location building surveyor practice through choice as we believe our clients value our consistent, personal, highly qualified and experienced service.

Our partners are John Allen BSc MBA MCIOB MRICS, and Ann Allen BSc FRICS.

What we don’t do

We offer a wide range of building surveyor services. Services we do not offer directly, but can arrange as part of a co-ordinated project team, include: measured surveys, quantity surveying, structural and architectural design.

We are not agents so do not manage the sale or purchase of property, or conduct rent reviews. And whilst we do offer Insurance Reinstatement Assessments, we do not provide commercial property valuations.

We do not offer pro forma residential survey reports such as the RICS Homebuyer Report as we believe they are inferior to a bespoke survey report, tailored to an individual client’s needs. We are very good at these.
