Property consultancy Eddisons has promoted Ashley Parkinson to the rank of Associate Director, a year after he joined its growing building project and advisory team. The news comes on the heels of a large contract win to help the UK Government with improving the conditions of the nation’s schools.

Established in 1844 and operating from twenty offices across the UK, Eddisons is a professional services firm which specialises in property consulting and construction project management. The chartered surveyor works in fast moving and dynamic markets across the UK and overseas, with staff delivering advice and a comprehensive range of services to property owners and occupiers, businesses and financial institutions.

While broadly the UK consulting market has seen a sharp contraction amid the coronavirus pandemic and following recession, Eddisons has performed strongly. Since 2016 the team was already working with academy trusts in the North West and across the UK, and in 2020 this helped it to secure £40 million of funding for school building refurbishment projects under the Government’s Condition Improvement Fund programme, as well as delivering the projects on the ground.

As it looks to prepare for a busy future, Eddisons has promoted Ashley Parkinson as an Associate Director. Based in Manchester, Parkinson joined the firm in 2019 as a Senior Building Surveyor, and according to the firm, played a "pivotal role" in the success and continued growth of the 30-strong UK-wide building and project consultancy team.

Ian Harrington, Eddisons’ Head of Building and Project Consultancy commented, “Ashley’s promotion is well deserved and a testament to his role in helping our team become the go-to provider of advice to academy trusts in the North West and beyond on navigating the complexities of CIF funding.”

Prior to joining Eddisons, Parkinson worked as a Chartered Building Surveyor with JLL between 2017 and 2019. He also spent four years with Rider Levett Bucknall where he fulfilled the same role. He holds a Building Surveying degree from Northumbria University.
