About Our Director Alastair Carey
Alastair grew up in the construction industry. His father is a carpenter by trade and owns a small building company in London. Growing up, Alastair would be at work every chance he could get with nearly every Saturday and school holiday spent on a building site.
This meant that he was able to see how buildings went for foundations to finishing. A lot of the time was spent out helping the trades at different stages of the building. Learning these skills from a young age meant he had a strong grasp of construction before pursuing a career as a quantity surveyor.
An offer from his fathers good friend to train as a junior quantity surveyor came along around the age of 17. After discussion with his family whether to pursue a career in carpentry or a more office based role was difficult. However he chose quantity surveying knowing that if it was not for him he could always come back to carpentry.
After starting at the bottom making tea, photocopying, running errands, assisting the other members of the office team he quickly showed that he already had solid knowledge and he was able to manage difficult tasks on his own.
Completing a Higher National Certificate on day release over two years from Bexley College in London meant that his effort was recognised. This was a major steppingstone to realising that he made the right choice in becoming a quantity surveyor.
His next move took him to Northern Ireland where he completed a degree whilst working full time for a PQS firm in Belfast. Working with a PQS firm gave him valuable experience on another side of quantity surveying that he had not seen before. Over 4 years he was able to manage several projects on his own and work in a team and solo when needed.
On completion of the BSc Quantity Surveyor from the University of Ulster Jordanstown it was time to move back to London and pursue the dream of travelling. Within 18 months of working with another business he was ready to move across to Australia via a 3 month trip through the middle east and Asia.
Within a short time of arrival in Australia he had secured a full-time job working in regional Western Australia. Again, he excelled in this company and was given sponsored with permanent residency following shortly after. After some time of residing in Australia, he decided it was the right time to pursue his Royal Institute of Quantity Surveyors recognition for his knowledge, expertise and experience.
A few short years went by and along came his RICS recognition, Australian Citizenship, two beautiful daughters, an amazing wife, a dog, a house and of course Measure Manage.
Alastair has shown his entrepreneurial drive through starting three of his own businesses. He has and still is today being educated by some of the best business minds in Australia through entrepreneurial courses, reading books, seminars, networking and talking with other business owners.
