Robert Branch


BA (Hons), MCIOB, AssocRICS


Robert studied Architecture, Building Management and Technology at the University of Liverpool.  Following his studies he worked on-site for 20 years in construction management, mostly on a design and build basis in a wide range of sectors, including new build and refurbishment.

From 2014 – 2019 he worked in New Zealand where he focussed on seismic construction along the Alpine Fault line.  The construction projects he managed were required to meet very high seismic performance standards on account of the frequency of very large earthquakes in this region.  He frequently worked on projects involving precast and in-situ seismic concrete frames as well as a selection of traditional timber-framed developments

Robert’s experience of constructing buildings led into an interest in building pathology and a career as a chartered residential surveyor and valuer.  His most recent experience entailed providing RICS condition surveys and private valuations to mainstream lenders

Areas of Practice

Robert joined H+R in 2023 as a surveyor.  With his extensive knowledge of different construction methodologies, materials, and principles he investigates the condition of all elements of the built environment, providing remedial advice to his private clients, architects, and structural engineers

Robert’s particular interest is in the properties of building materials and their interaction with the environment, and comparing the performance of vernacular buildings with modern methods of construction
