Kester Banks


Kester studied Building Surveying at Sheffield Hallam University graduating with a first-class degree in 2021.  During his studies he undertook a placement year at the Chatsworth Estate in the Peak District National Park, managing planned and reactive maintenance of their property portfolio which included residential properties and commercial agricultural buildings.  He completed his dissertation on the practicalities and performance of natural vs synthetic internal wall insulation of traditional solid masonry walls.  He has a wider interest in both the historic and modern built environment, including Town Planning and the reuse and rehabilitation of historic buildings.

Areas of Practice

Kester joined H+R in 2021 as a Graduate Surveyor. He primarily investigates dampness and timber decay within traditional buildings.  However, he also enjoys troubleshooting failures in modern buildings with a particular focus on deficient architectural detailing and poor site practice.  Following on from his dissertation he is interested in the retrofit of traditional buildings and how this can best be achieved without damaging the original building fabric.
