Richard Bolshaw
CEO / Chartered Building Surveyor

I’m Richard, Chartered Building Surveyor and Director of RB Surveyors. After completing my studies in the City of Liverpool I went on to work with various commercial property consultants in London, Manchester and Chester. Along the way I gained extensive commercial property knowledge and industry experience.

 I formed RB Surveyors in 2012, a company that adds value, is service focused and houses a fantastic team ethos by all working together. Since day one we have a proven record of delivering quality, commercial reports. We now deliver our services and add value to the largest retailers, investment companies and local authorities throughout the UK using a confident growth strategy.

Communication is a key driver for me and the company, we add value by clearly explaining matters, options and outcomes. We excel by delivering concise feedback, at the right level, within hours of attending site.

When I get some free time, I love spending time with my family and travelling the world, especially the city breaks.

Doug Tidswell
Director / Chartered Building Surveyor

I’m Doug and I am a dedicated Chartered Building Surveyor. The thing I enjoy most about my job is the detail to execute an instruction precisely to guide clients through complex projects or challenges and ensure the very best outcome is achieved.

With almost 40 years’ experience I put myself in client’s shoes in order to understand their requirements whilst providing expert advice in a concise professional manner. Remaining open to new ideas and always endeavouring to provide ‘excellence’ I am passionate about delivering service for all areas of work including Project Management, Contract Administration, Dilapidations matters, Pre-acquisition surveys and acting as an Expert Witness.

I enjoy sailing, skiing and horse riding with my family, including my daughter who skips from one challenge to another. However, now she has left home I have a little more time to spend renovating the family home and helping my wife in the garden. After twelve years of serious gardening Monty Don and Robin Knox-Johnston have become something of heroes to me.
