Ball & Berry hires regional director
Jennifer Barrett has joined the Preston-based building control inspectors, bringing with her 30 years of experience in the construction industry.
Barrett began her career in the industry as a trainee civil engineer technician in 1992, acquiring a building surveying degree in 1999. She went on to work as a director with Dunwoody Building Legislation and as a technical manager with building control service Jhai.
Barrett has expertise in quality assurance and legislation across the built environment, including retail, industrial, public sector and residential developments.
“Jennifer has such extensive experience in construction and building control, and with her raft of qualifications and sector memberships, she really is on the pulse of the industry,” said Ball & Berry director Paul McNeill.
“The insights and vast knowledge she’s gleaned from such a high calibre of roles over the last 30 years will be a huge advantage to Ball & Berry, and we’re delighted she’s joining us and helping to further develop our proposition in the North West,” he continued.
Barrett said she was “thrilled” to join Ball & Berry, which she described as a “well-established and respected approved inspector”.
“I’ll be bringing my leadership and technical skills to the fore, together with a wealth of experience in complex and major projects that includes numerous government and Crown Estate developments,” Barrett said.
“It’s also my ambition to provide guidance and support to younger team members who are in the early stages of their career, ensuring they receive the same progressive opportunities that I was awarded to flourish and grow.”
Ball & Berry has offices in Preston, Manchester, Birmingham and London.
