Simon Hollis HNDip, BSc (Hons), MSc, MRICS

Senior Lecturer


I am a Chartered Surveyor and I teach modules on the undergraduate and postgraduate Building Surveying courses on a part time basis. The rest of the time, I run my surveying practice which specialises in building pathology and moisture related defects in traditionally constructed buildings. 


I have been working in the built environment sector for nearly 18 years and during that time have worked all over England, Scotland and Wales in consultancy, client side and the public sector.

I teach part-time on the BSc and MSc Building Surveying courses two days a week and I run my surveying practice specialising in building pathology and traditionally constructed buildings the rest of the time.

I am interested in building defects, cause and remedial works, traditionally constructed buildings, traditional materials and techniques.
