Who We Are

We are a small, family run, independent surveying practice covering South-East Cornwall and beyond.

TIM DEAKIN, BSc(Hons.). Quantity Surveying: Practice Proprietor, Project Manager, Quantity Surveyor

Over 35 years experience as a surveyor in the property and construction industry. Tim has the advantage of having worked on 'both sides of the fence' - for both clients and contractors - and so knows many useful 'tricks of the trade', giving advance preparedness for the numerous potential problems likely to be encountered with property and building projects.

TOM DEAKIN: Assistant Surveyor, Estimator

Tim's son. Returned to South-East Cornwall in 2017 and immediately leapt to the fore to tackle our increasing workload.

JEANETTE DEAKIN: Office Administrator

Tim's wife. Joined the practice in 2012. Jeanette also volunteers as treasurer for the Looe RNLI.
