Chartered surveyors announces team restructure

Alex Barnau

Chartered Surveyors Bruton Knowles has announced a shift in its team structure.

Lynn Alderson, formerly a land rights officer, has been appointed to a senior role within her department.

With a background as a land consultant specialising in land referencing and access, Alderson joined Bruton Knowles in August 2021.

Since then, she has actively contributed to various infrastructure projects across the UK, including her involvement in the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) of the A511, as well as extensive collaboration with clients from National Grid and Network Rail.

She said: “The vast range of clients I am involved with has really helped develop my skills and it is great to see Bruton Knowles managing so many big projects across the UK. This development has led to me striving in my role and securing a promotion. I am already working towards my future progression within the firm, which is to become an Associate. It is a testament to the type of forward-thinking company Bruton Knowles is, that we have these opportunities to excel.

“I will continue to support my colleagues and involve myself with the work that our National Utilities and Infrastructure Team carries out.”

Alex Barnau, based Bruton Knowles office in Glouchester, became part of the company in 2017 and has now earned a promotion to the role of Lead GIS Analyst. In his previous capacity, he was responsible for offering and overseeing various geospatial services for utilities and infrastructure projects.

In his new role, Barnau’s expanded responsibilities encompass overseeing the administration and maintenance of GIS and database systems throughout the business. Leveraging his extensive experience in geographic information systems, he is well-suited to lead a team of analysts.

He has worked on projects including the ‘Hinkley Point C’ project, recognised as the largest environmental initiative in Britain.

HR director at Bruton Knowles, Neil Young said: “Our national utilities and infrastructure team has had changes within its structure, and Lynn’s and Alex’s promotions exemplify this. There is no doubt that these promotions are well deserved. Alex has the attributes to effectively lead a team of GIS analysts, while Lynn has demonstrated positive behaviours with her clients and is a role model to her colleagues.

“I would like to congratulate Lynn and Alex on their transition into their senior roles and I look forward to watching them develop further.”
