Pete Nichols BSc (Hons) MRICS said: “I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and
growing Fourth Wall’s presence in Birmingham, the wider midlands, and beyond.

“I was drawn to Fourth Wall’s dynamic approach to Building Surveying, and their
focus on personal, pragmatic advice for clients. Having worked on projects up to
£16million in value, and development monitoring up to £150million, I’m delighted to
take the reins as Project lead for the business. I’m also thrilled to be able to assist
the junior development within the team via RICS APC mentoring and via my
experience as an APC assessor. There’s definitely an exciting future ahead both
personally and with Fourth Wall.”

Pete has joined the existing team as a Director, and will be working alongside Lead
Director Joshua Weston BSc (Hons) MRICS, and Directors Liam Piercy BSc (Hons)
MRICS, and Annie Buckley, to further strengthen the Project Management,

Monitoring Services as well as enhancement of our dilapidations offering. I know
Pete will have a significant impact on our team and strategic development, regionally
and nationally, with our existing clients and future partners.”
