Who are we?
Adam Elcock – Director, RICS Registered Valuer and Building Surveyor.
I left school at 16 and joined the British Army where I travelled extensively around the world in an operational and training capacity. After 8 years I decided that a change of career was in order and left to join the big wide world. With a number of specialities to hand and with high level security clearance I gained a role within the MOD in a junior surveying capacity working my way up the ladder whilst also attending a distance learning course at the College of Estate Management at Reading University. In 2007 Elcock Associates Ltd was created and has steadily grown since.
I have memberships to a number of professional bodies including the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Chartered Institute of Building (COIB) and the Building Research Establishment (BRE). I specialise in Building Surveying, Quantity Surveying, Party Wall, Expert Witness and Project Management.
