Two Lincoln property professionals have gained chartered status for Savills’ rural building consultancy team.
Michael Gilbert has achieved chartered status from the Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), while Aaron Man has gained chartership from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) by qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor.
Aaron undertook two years of professional experience, a year of which has been with Savills prior to successfully completing the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) for chartership.
He graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Building Surveying before joining Savills award-winning graduate programme in Lincoln to broaden his surveying experience in the rural team.
Michael, however, took a different route, utilising his 15 years of experience in architectural design to become chartered, which involved an in-depth critical analysis summarising his knowledge, understanding and application of the construction process with regards to planning, design and construction use whilst relating it to his professional experience.
He began his career as a trainee architectural technician at a Boston-based architecture firm and went on to gain experience across a number of Lincolnshire architectural practices and within the local government.
He joined Savills in July 2014 where he has worked on planning, building regulations and construction drawings on projects covering a number of sectors including commercial, historic, agricultural, educational and residential.
David Morris, head of the rural building consultancy team in Lincoln, said: “Aaron and Michael have done incredibly well and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them both. They are a credit to our team and their newfound chartered status provides further confirmation of their professional and expert approach.”
