THE commercial division of independent property consultancy, CKD Galbraith, is investing in the future of its agency and building surveying teams with two new recruits.

Commercial agency surveyor, Katie Gibson, joins the agency and investment team from DTZ. A graduate of Heriot-Watt University in 2008 with a BSc in Estate Management, Katie qualified as a chartered surveyor in May 2013.

She has been involved in the sale of Robert Gordon University’s city centre campus and acted for high profile landlords such as Edinburgh Airport Limited, AWG and Thistle Property Group. Katie has also managed more than 100,000 sq ft of commercial property, making her well placed to offer an all-round occupier service.

Reuben Birch has been appointed graduate building surveyor, expanding Edinburgh’s commercial building surveying team to four full-time roles.

A graduate this year from Edinburgh Napier with a BSc in Building Surveying, Reuben will be involved in the full range of commercial building surveying services.

The new recruits are based at the firm’s headquarters in Edinburgh.

Said Martin Cassels, building surveying partner at CKD Galbraith: “Reuben hails from Buckie in Morayshire so has a good understanding of the breadth and diversity of the company. He will be shadowing the team for on-the-job training and support to build experience and work towards his APC.”

Said Pam Over, managing partner of CKD Galbraith: “We’re delighted to appoint these two fresh and dynamic individuals as an investment in their future and ours as they help bolster our commercial offering across Scotland.”
