Chris Thorpe


While Chris joined AA Projects in 2006, his career started at Atkins where he was a graduate and progressed to their Head of Property and Surveying for the Northwest region.

Chris is a statutory board director at AA Projects, a chartered building surveyor, a chartered environmentalist, and a certified principal designer. He acts as a voice for health and safety and sustainability at board level. Chris leads our Schools, Academies and Further Education sectors, as well as working across multiple sectors.

When he first joined the business, the building surveying team was our smallest division. Chris has helped us create a national team of ‘home grown talent’ who understand how to deliver a quality product. Our critical mass of consultants and geographic spread enables us to deliver major national and international programmes of work across multiple sectors.

We have created strong partnerships with clients across multiple sectors, including long standing relationships with the University of Liverpool, Leeds Teaching Hospitals and G4S.

Chris was a trombonist in a championship section brass band and runs a small farm.

He takes care with every task, no matter how small and has championed the use of technology in surveying to drive accuracy and efficiencies. He leads our annual graduate recruitment programme where we run workshops, interviews, training days and outreach events.

Here are some of the projects Chris has worked on: Condition Improvement Fund, major survey commissions for Wandsworth LBC and Liverpool City Council, major PPP survey commissions across Education & Health sectors, various University Frameworks and leading on due diligence surveys for hotel estates across the UK and Europe.
