Chartered Surveyor resident in South West France

The mark of property professionalism worldwide

Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors

Over 35 years experience in the Construction Industry.

The buying and selling process in France can be exciting, yet it can also bring with it considerable stress.

Buyers worry about the condition of a property, and the possibility of unseen problems, together with the likely cost and feasibility of making their ideas reality and creating their dream home.

Sellers aim to present their property in the best possible way in order to attract buyers but are frustrated when a potential buyer walks away because of uncertainty about the condition of some aspect of the property and the likely cost of repairs.

Gordon Barnes can help in both these situations as well as advising existing property owners of the cost and feasibility of their proposed extensions.

As a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS) and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building (FCIOB) Gordon is fully qualified and experienced to advise both buyers and sellers on the condition of a property and also the feasibility and cost of repairs and renovations.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) was founded in 1868 and is the world’s foremost authority for the regulation and training of the Surveying profession, with over 110,000 members worldwide. It has a registered office in Paris for RICS members operating in France.

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) was founded in 1834 and has 40,000 members worldwide. It is the regulating body for those involved in the management of all aspects of the building process.

Therefore as a Chartered Surveyor Gordon operates at all times under the strict Codes of Conduct of the two foremost professional bodies of the construction industry.

Over the last 35 years Gordon has had experience working on almost all types of building and civil engineering projects, both in UK and overseas. These include housing, schools, hospitals, commercial buildings and major infra-structure projects, with full responsibility for completion on time and within strict budget controls. Over several years Gordon was responsible for the preservation and sympathetic renovation of historic buildings both in UK and in France.

In 1997 Gordon formed GPB Project Services to provide Construction Project Management and Building Surveying services to a wide variety of private clients. GPB Project Services is registered as a Chartered Building Consultancy by the Chartered Institute of Building. Consultancies which qualify for this designation must demonstrate a high level of professionalism and integrity, together with an extensive knowledge of the construction process.

Gordon is permanently resident in Aquitaine where he is ideally situated to offer a comprehensive service over most of SW France, and he is able to respond quickly to client’s deadlines. Over the years he has established many useful contacts in order to help clients with the buying and selling process of French properties. However, he wishes to reassure clients that he operates totally independently of any other company, and aims to give purely objective and unbiased advice to all his clients.

GPB Project Services is registered and fully insured to operate in France. (Siret No.: 48357693000026)
