Brian Kinnell and Partner Alasdair Seaton
DM Hall has recently appointed highly respected and experienced quantity surveyor, Brian Kinnell as Senior Surveyor in Dunfermline. Until recently, he was a director of local private surveying practice Wilkinson & Lowe.
Brian has a distinguished career in QS, having joined CR Douglas & Co as an Apprentice in 1982, remaining until 1996 and becoming an Associate. After a spell with Faithful and Gould in Edinburgh, he joined Wilkinson & Lowe in 1998, becoming an Associate in 1999, a Partner in 2000 and a Director on the firm’s incorporation in 2012.
He will have the responsibility of expanding DM Hall’s nationwide insurance validation and quantity surveying capability. He will also have responsibility of establishing a new QS department within the firm, with the ultimate aim of bringing on future talent to ensure sustainability.
He said “At the moment, I carry out insurance validation work across a large part of Scotland and this is something I will continue to expand, backed by the resources of DM Hall. I will also be focussing on bringing in substantial new QS work into the business and introducing new skills.”
Partner Alasdair Seaton said: “Brian has established a very well-deserved reputation both locally and nationally for his skills, professionalism and integrity. He has been very prominent in the local area and his experience will be an invaluable asset to DM Hall.
“His presence will allow the firm to rapidly expand its QS and insurance validation offering, thereby increasing the range of services that we can offer our clients up and down the country.”
