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.

Darren Lamb
Associate Director / Chartered Building Surveyor

I’m Darren and I’m the Associate Director at RB Surveyors, leading our team of Surveyors.  Since graduating from Liverpool John Moores in 2011, I have gained valuable client-side experience, with particular emphasis on project management within Healthcare and Retail. Now a Chartered Building Surveyor and having been at RB Surveyors since 2016,  I have experience in all aspects of building surveying; however, I have a strong focus on contract administration, pre-acquisition/pre-lease reporting and reinstatement cost assessments.

My spare time is generally spent as a busy parent and foster carer and we enjoy days out, holidays and trips to the theatre. When I do find spare time to spend with friends, I like to sample the delights of the craft beer world.

Hi, I’m Mark, and I’m a Chartered Building Surveyor here at RB Surveyor Services. Since graduating from Liverpool John Moores University in 2018.

I am Hollie, a Chartered Building Surveyor at RB Surveyor Services.  I have experience in a wide range of building surveying specialties; with a strong focus on contract administration, pre-acquisition/pre-lease reporting and dilapidations. Joining RB Surveyor Services in 2021 has been immensely rewarding, allowing me to engage in diverse and challenging projects, including managing large projects, collaborating with national occupiers, and surveying Listed and Heritage buildings across the UK.

After completing a masters, with a distinction in commercial building surveying at Liverpool John Moores, I worked for a large Liverpool city centre property company before moving over to RB Surveyor Services.  One aspect I particularly enjoy about my role is the opportunity to travel extensively and work with a dynamic team. I am grateful to be part of a company that prioritises both professional and personal growth, providing avenues for continuous development.

I live in Chester City Centre and in my spare time I enjoy being around my friends and family, participating in various sports with a hint of competitiveness, and taking advantage of the company’s unlimited holiday scheme to explore new destinations through travel.
