Building Success: Rund Birmingham Celebrates Expansion and New Milestones


Rund’s Birmingham office has continued to grow this year, marking its most successful period since opening its doors in 2019, at 55 Colmore Row in the city centre.

In 2024, the Birmingham team has expanded to the largest size it has ever been, including six new team members being recruited since January, with the most recent being a senior surveyor who joined in April. Three internal promotions have also recently been celebrated with Tom French promoted from managing surveyor to associate director, Phil Owens moving from surveyor to senior surveyor, and Milind Page from assistant surveyor to surveyor.

This growth and investment reflects Rund’s growing presence in the Midlands. The specialist surveying and construction consultancy’s Birmingham office is currently working on projects across the Midlands and beyond. Among these is the 30-storey Build to Rent (BTR) Makers Yard development on Sherlock Street, Birmingham. Rund is acting as independent project monitor for operators Get Living, which is also forward funding the project. The development comprises one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, including 47 affordable units, and is slated for completion in 2025.

“This is an exciting period of growth for Rund in Birmingham, and we take great pride in establishing ourselves as the consultant of choice in the region. Our team’s performance has been exceptional, with recent internal promotions and new hires demonstrating our commitment to investing in our people and enhancing our service offering for clients. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and subsequent turbulent period for the construction industry, including rising material costs and supply chain disruptions, the region remains a hub for investment and development, making Birmingham a brilliant location for Rund to operate.

“We pride ourselves in delivering an unrivalled service nationwide and our Birmingham operation is a vital part of our work as a business, working together to meet the needs of construction stakeholders across the country from our bases in London, Bristol, Birmingham and Southampton. Rund has grown significantly in Birmingham to support on major schemes, including in the fast-growing BTR sector, and we’re excited to see what is next for the region and how this will contribute to the shared success of Rund as a whole.”

Tom French, Associate Director at Rund
