Leading Cornish surveying firm marks new business chapter with office move

Published February 22nd, 2021

A leading Cornish building surveying firm has marked the start of a new business chapter by moving to new premises.

RTP Surveyors, which has offices in Falmouth, Bodmin, and Plymouth, has relocated its head office to Tremough Innovation Centre, part of Falmouth University’s Penryn Campus.

It follows a strong two years of growth for the business, which has included the opening of an office in Devon, the expansion of its team, and a shift in ownership profile following a management buyout.

Director Richard Collett said: “Following 22 wonderful years in our Arwenack Street office, we are excited to be joining the Tremough Innovation Centre community, which offers state-of the-art technology, vibrant networking spaces, and the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse array of businesses.

“Better connectivity means that our team can, in the long-term, more effectively balance home and office working, which will allow employees to enjoy a better quality of life – something we’ve been striving to achieve over the last two years. As a business which is focused on sustainability, this new way of working will also help us to reduce our carbon footprint.“

Based at Falmouth University’s Penryn Campus, Tremough Innovation Centre opened in 2012, and is built to BREEAM Excellent Standard, one of the highest levels of environmental accreditation available for new buildings.

Founded in 1986 by Richard Thomas, RTP Surveyors is a RICS-accredited firm with an 18 strong team of building surveyors, architectural technicians, and administration staff.

In 2018, after 32 years at the reins, Richard Thomas became a much-valued consultant to the business, following a management buyout which adjusted the ownership profile of the existing directors – Martin Winchester, Martyn Middlewick and Richard Collett – and brought in new director John Darbyshire.

A design-led firm of chartered building surveyors, RTP’s services include pre-purchase surveys, architectural design and project management, party wall work, expert witness, and historic building conservation for residential and commercial clients throughout South West England.

The business is currently recruiting for chartered building surveyors, experienced surveyors and architectural technicians, details of which can be found on RTP’s website.
