Shaun Woolford

Shaun Woolford comes with extensive public sector, as well as private sector, experience underpinned by a strong academic background including being a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

To compliment his Urban Estate Management Degree, Shaun has, in more recent years, obtained a Masters Degree in Construction and Real Estate Administration together with an RICS Diploma in Project Management.

As well as carrying out wide ranging domestic and commercial valuation work and being regularly involved in the determination of Party Wall Awards, Shaun has a particular interest in commercial property management, ranging from individual lock-up retail investments to multi user industrial estates. The extensive portfolio of commercial properties currently under management has allowed Shaun to put his project management skills to good use, advising clients and subsequently implementing works to adequately maintain and often improve the condition of the building stock in a cost effective manner.

Shaun is also committed to training in connection with the implications of the Disability Discrimination Act in order to provide access audits and Expert Witness support.

Gavin Chambers

Gavin Chambers joined Gully Howard Chartered Surveyors in September 2003, having moved to the Island from London in June of that year. Albeit that he had been in London for the previous 12 years, firstly at Ravensbourne College achieving an Honours Degree in furniture and product design and latterly working in the design-led contract furniture market, working alongside such companies as Fosters and Partners in specifying, designing and supplying furniture for such projects as the HSBC Headquarters building in Canary Wharf and City Hall building by Tower Bridge.

Before moving to London, Gavin was brought up in Somerset where he attended Millfield School. It was this rural upbringing that was the key factor for moving out of London to the Isle of Wight for he and his young family to enjoy the higher quality of life that the Island provides.

Gavin brings his creativity and lifelong interest in architecture to the Agency Department which he now heads up.
