Director, Registered and Chartered Building Surveyor
Based in Christchurch, Director Rory Crosbie brings a comprehensive knowledge of the property and construction industry to his clients, and enjoys the challenge of identifying and developing new services to meet market demand throughout the South Island.
Rory has established a reputation for understanding complex damage issues particularly in the aftermath of the Canterbury and Kaikoura earthquake events.
Originally from Ireland, he spent six years in London with a prominent European property consultancy where he acquired commercially orientated building surveying skills before setting up and running his own property consultancy in Ireland for nine years.
Having practised as a Chartered Building Surveyor in three different countries, Rory has a unique property consultancy skill set. He applies this diverse professional experience when managing his team of quantity surveyors, structural engineers, building surveyors and design consultants in the delivery of advice to a portfolio of residential and commercial clients.
Rory has worked with the Ministry of Education, Universities, insurance companies and their PMOs, and owners of commercial property
portfolios. Currently, the majority of Rory’s time involves assisting with insurance claim settlements, and as project manager and engineer to contract on weathertightness and earthquake repair projects with ranging values of up to $15 million. On each project Rory acts as client liaison, focusing on delivery in line with clients expectations. Rory is also busy with lease reinstatement and technical due diligence for those acquiring commercial property. His reputation in the industry has seen Rory becoming more involved in expert witness type work, a trend that will continue as the pace of the Christchurch rebuild accelerates.
