COM PROP Ash & Co buys SPA

ASH Chartered Surveyors have joined forces with the Cheltenham-based SPA Chartered Surveyors.

SPA was founded by Simon Pontifex FRICS in 1996. He will remain as a Consultant and the existing staff, including his son Harry will transfer to ASH ensuring continuity for SPA’s clients and the smooth transition of the business.

ASH Chartered Surveyors was established in Gloucester in 1989 and has developed into one of the leading independent multi-disciplined surveying practices in the Gloucestershire area. In 2013 it opened a second office in Cheltenham on Rodney Road following the acquisition of Horsleys.

Simon McKeag, a Partner of ASH Chartered Surveyors, said:

“Simon Pontifex is a highly regarded surveyor known for his personal service, which we consider to be one of our key strengths. The two firms will complement each other well.

“The acquisition allows us to strengthen our presence in Cheltenham and services we offer.

Simon Pontifex added:

“SPA are delighted to join ASH’s team. We have the same ethos of providing a quality service to clients and we will be stronger together.”
