Bradley Ireson, a Trainee Quantity Surveyor from Barford near Wymondham, in Norfolk, has been announced as a finalist in this years’ RICS Matrics Young Surveyor of the Year Awards.

The awards recognise and celebrate the most inspirational young surveying professionals in the UK, highlighting outstanding role models who work to the highest standards and act as advocates for the profession.  

RICS Matrics supports new members entering the construction industry and works to shape the future of surveying. It’s forward thinking in its outlook of the profession, enabling new workers to expand their skill sets and gain confidence in networking.

Bradley Ireson, 21, is a finalist in the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ category.

Having joined Lovell, a Morgan Sindall Group company, in 2017, Bradley is now using his skills on the Wymondham development, which is a joint venture with Flagship Housing Group. He previously gained vast experience in King’s Lynn by working on multiple Lovell sites being developed through a strategic major housing programme for the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk. 

Bradley has been a fantastic addition to the team – working well with colleagues and consistently proving himself to be someone others can depend upon, whilst pro-actively seeking out ways to drive improvement.

Bradley is regarded as a very well-liked member of the team, with great enthusiasm and pride in his role. His eagerness to ask questions, extend his knowledge and drive innovation has been recognised and welcomed by his colleagues and others within the industry.

After recently joining RICS, Bradley is enjoying learning how the organisation can support and inform young surveyors as they progress in the profession. He is a proud ambassador of both the profession and Lovell, and has attended careers fairs to represent surveying within the business.

Bradley said: “I’m delighted to be announced as a finalist for this award. I’ve really enjoyed my time at Lovell so far, and am working hard to continuously build on my skills and expertise. I’m looking forward to further improving in my role, and teaching others about working within the industry.”

Simon Medler, regional managing director for Lovell, added: “We’re thrilled Bradley has been shortlisted for this award. He embraces new challenges, pro-actively seeks out ways to improve existing procedures and inspires confidence in other young people. Bradley is fast-showing his potential as an emerging leader and someone we feel exceptionally proud to have on the team. I’d like to thank Bradley for all of his hard work and dedication to Lovell, and I’m very proud to see that his accomplishments have been recognised.”

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the RICS Matrics Young Surveyor of the Year Awards ceremony has been cancelled and this year’s winners will be announced online at a special digital ceremony taking place on Friday 27th November.
