With over 40 years’ experience in the construction and property industry, Steve Malpass joins as a Director from Cushman & Wakefield, formerly DTZ.

At Bilfinger GVA, Steve will work on Birmingham accounts within the health sector, primarily those within the NHS where he has extensive experience in asset valuation, estate strategy analysis and development, business case preparation and building consultancy, having spent 12 years’ as an Assistant District Building Officer with NHS Estates.

David Martin, Senior Director at Bilfinger GVA, said: “Steve is a rare find, with a specialised skill set which will be a fantastic asset to the building consultancy team and Bilfinger GVA as a whole. His wide range of knowledge, particularly his ability to understand, analyse and provide strategic advice on the challenges faced by the NHS both financially and operationally, will be advantageous to our office, rating and valuation teams, who also provide professional advice in this sector.

“His appointment is demonstrative of an impressive year for the Building Consultancy team, following a sharp spike in demand for project management and project monitoring services across our office, industrial and student accommodation sectors. We have made a number of notable appointments this year and look forward to welcoming Steve to the team as we look to expand further as the economy continues to go from strength to strength.”
