    Senior Instructor

    Peter Worman

    Having come across significant competence issues among party wall surveyors, he identified the primary causes as both a lack of training and limited access to the specialist knowledge required by those taking on this role. Peter was a chartered building surveyor for over thirty years and has dealt with the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 since it came into being. With the aim of advancing standards in party wall surveying, he used his extensive experience to design a course that would provide those attending with the necessary tools to correctly interpret and apply the Act. For the last ten years Peter has focused solely on party wall matters, an area of work he has always found both fascinating and rewarding. He has a Level 4 Award in Education and Training and is passionate about passing his knowledge on to others.
