International real estate adviser Savills has expanded its Building & Project Consultancy (B&PC) team with the appointment of David Bailey who joins as a director based at the firm’s Southampton office.

Bailey has over 25 years’ experience within the built environment with expertise in building surveying, development monitoring, project management and providing strategic accommodation advice. He joins from Gregory Associates where he was a director, specialising in complex industrial fit outs for national and multi-national occupiers, as well as successfully delivering the fit out of several commercial offices for high end clients and leading on Party Wall Matters and Reinstatement Cost Assessments for the organisation.
