BSc (Hons), MCIOB, C.Build E, MCABE
PHLORABUILD was founded by Jatinder, a Chartered Construction Manager and Chartered Building Engineer originally from South East London who now resides in Kent.
Jatinder grew up with a family of construction professionals including his grand-father, uncle, cousins, brothers all experienced carpenters.
Jatinder has a creative mind who loved Art and Design growing up. He studied Art and Design as a double award A-Level and his Art work was exhibited throughout various colleges. Despite his passion for Art, his father encouraged him to study a construction related degree, Jatinder started researching extensively on Architecture and Building Surveying. He loved the idea of being a Building Surveyor as this involved both on site and office based work. He followed his heart and graduated in 2010 with a BSc (Hons) in Building Surveying whilst continuing his passion of Art as a hobby.
As this was the time of a recession, Jatinder found it difficult to obtain a job in a construction related industry. A lot of his friends and colleagues went back to their part-time retail jobs and worked there full time. However, he persevered and managed to obtain a specialised job as a trainee Asbestos Surveyor. He enjoyed 3 fabulous years here, met good friends and became a qualified Asbestos Surveyor.
He then was headhunted by e.surv Chartered Surveyors, a well renowned Residential Valuation Surveying company. After a year and a half, Jatinder became an AssocRICS qualified Residential Surveyor but decided he wanted to pursue a career in his passion construction as opposed to real estate.
Jatinder was then given an opportunity to work for London based local authority as a Building Control Surveyor where they desperately needed someone to take the job by the scruff of its neck! This is where he finally fell on his feet, he reminisced his childhood visiting his father on building sites. He advised experienced Builders on site regarding Building Regulations, implemented his academic knowledge of construction, yet with a practical mindset.
After nearly 10 years of professional education and practical experience Jatinder is now an experienced Chartered Construction Manager and Chartered Building Engineer. He has obtained these titles from being recognised by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE). He is able to use the designation letters MCIOB, C. Build E, MCABE after his name.
Jatinder’s main drive of starting PHLORABUILD was initially to bring his father Jass out of retirement, a retired Builder with over 40 years experience in the industry. Jass had itchy feet and was not enjoying the retired life. Therefore, father and son decided to work on some projects together, first one being Jatinder’s first home where they thrived off working with each other and brought Jatinder’s vision of creating his dream home into reality. Jatinder‘s creative eye and academic knowledge coupled with father Jass’s extensive building experience makes them a dream team!
