Gurpal Virdee

Equity Partner
Managing Partner and Head of Building Surveying

Gurpal joined John Rowan and Partners in 2004 as a chartered building surveyor. Having spent many years working with local authorities and blue-chip clients in both project management and in a professional capacity, Gurpal understands the demands of high profile clients and delivering to meet challenging requirements.

Gurpal was elected to managing partner of John Rowan and Partners in 2017, whilst continuing to head the building surveying team responsible for the delivery of commercial and professional services across a wide range of sectors.

In 2017, he led the business through a major restructuring and transformation programme resulting in a more flexible and agile working environment, new IT infrastructure and a renewed business strategy focusing more on our core services, strengths and sectors, as we continue to push and develop our exciting 5 year business plan.

Gurpal’s real passion is in resolving challenging problems, which is perhaps in his DNA, and led him to becoming a building surveyor in the first instance. This passion also drove him to set up the Building Forensics Partnership which ultimately focuses on resolving complex latent defects for his clients – Savings to date for his clients are in excess of £20m.
