Bernard Paine


Bernard joined us in 1973 as a Designer Detailer after a spell in the reinforced concrete side of the industry, rising to senior engineer and then Associate.     

He has built up a wide range of experience of building construction with projects including Waitrose supermarkets and warehouses, sports halls, flats and office blocks, together with the refurbishment of buildings for office and residential use.  These include a major Oxford Street store, Adams building and MOD buildings.  

Bernard also has a wide range of knowledge on party wall matters.  

He took a sabbatical in 2008 prior to retiring which was spent working as an assistant to a London based Party Wall Surveyor. This included experience of managing a Party Wall Award process which included the complication of Act works subject to high court injunctions.  

In 2009 Bernard returned to HPM as Consultant where he pursues his interest in advising Party Wall surveyors on structural matters.
