Hat Trick of APC Success!

Bailey Partnership

We are delighted to announce that three of our valued employees have passed the Assessment of Professional Competence with RICS and are now Chartered Building Surveyors (MRICS).

Lee Swain BSc(Hons) MRICS

This is a fantastic achievement for Lee having taken a “leap of faith” to leave his former employer and pursue a long term personal goal of achieving Chartered status.

Lee joined us just over a year ago after having known and worked alongside Bailey Partnership for several years. Lee has demonstrated his work ethic and commitment to the industry by balancing a busy workload and family life alongside his APC studies. We are delighted that Lee’s hard work has paid off in the end..!

Lee has contributed to the success and growth of the Chichester office by forging working relationships with new Clients and delivering successful projects time after time. Lee has a young family and we look forward to him returning to a normal work/life balance at the same time as maintaining continual development of his career. 

Lee will be providing support to a future APC candidate within the Chichester team in 2023 and we are confident that he will be a superb role model!


Darrel Trigg BSc(Hons) MRICS


Darrel joined our Sevenoaks team in January 2021 after graduating with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Building Surveying. 

Darrel moved to the UK from South Africa seven years ago to start a new life and has since worked tirelessly to achieve his career goals which are all thoroughly deserved! We are delighted to have been able to support him in achieving Chartered Status. 

Darrel has an exemplary approach to his work and repeatedly shows levels of commitment to his projects way beyond the call of duty. Darrel is a valued member of the Sevenoaks team and a consummate professional. His personable approach to his work has led to the development of successful working relationships, repeat business and the delivery of complex projects with high profile Clients. 

We look forward to seeing Darrel return to a work / life balance and hearing about the ongoing success of his son Charlie as a budding professional sportsman! 


Jordan George BSc(Hons) MRICS

Jordan joined the practice in 2018 directly from the University of Plymouth with a degree in Building Surveying & Environment. 

Jordan has demonstrated a keen work ethic and focused drive and determination in all aspects of his work which culminated in his election to professional status back in July at the age of 25 – a fantastic achievement at such a young age!!

Jordan is a key member of the Plymouth team and is working on a number of high profile projects across the city and is very much looking forward to enhancing our teams ability along with other exciting opportunities in 2023.   

Huge congratulations from all of us to Lee, Darrel and Jordan, passing your APC is a fantastic achievement and very much deserved. We look forward to watching Lee, Darrel and Jordan’s careers continue to progress in coming years.
