Gray Scanlan Hill acquired by Anstey Horne 

Anstey Horne has bought the Manchester-based chartered surveyor, expanding its presence in the city. 

Gray Scanlan Hill, founded in 2005, will be subsumed into Anstey Horne with founder Simon Hill and former LSH man Darren Hughes becoming directors. 

“We are really pleased to be joining Anstey Horne,” Hill said. 

“Our businesses share a commitment to providing the highest level of service to clients to help them resolve a range of complex technical and commercial challenges across all sectors and types of building asset.” 

Anstey Horne’s upsized Manchester offering will be run by a team of 11, nine of whom will move over from GSH. 

In addition to Manchester, Anstey Horne has five further UK offices in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Plymouth, and Norwich, employing a total of 87 staff. 

The firm provides advice to clients on rights to light, fire safety and party walls. 

“The building surveying services we provide will now be complimented and further supplemented by the Anstey Horne team,” Hill added. 

Alex Parry-Jones, head of building consultancy at Anstey Horne, added: ‘We are diversifying and growing our specialist teams across the UK to meet client demand and meet their expectations of the high level of service we seek to provide. 

“Alongside our general building consultancy services we now offer a full range of fire consultancy advice to support our clients’ assets from pre-planning fire strategies to specialist FRAEW** surveys of existing stock.”
