A first-class honours graduate is the latest recruit to Midlands quantity surveying company CQS Solutions.
Omar Miah, 21, from Newtown in Powys joined the company in September as an assistant quantity surveyor after graduating from Coventry University with a first-class honours degree in quantity surveying and commercial management.
Omar will join the eight-person team at the company which works with building contractors and subcontractors across the Midlands and is based at the University of Wolverhampton’s Telford Innovation Campus.
He said that after graduating he wanted to work with a growing company to get a wide experience in different projects and the invaluable support of a small team of experts.
Omar is also accredited in the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method which means he is qualified to help contractors and companies find the most sustainable way of running a project and procuring materials.
“It’s an area of the business that really interests me and I hope there may be openings to put my BREEAM qualification to good use within CQS Solutions sometime in the future,” said Omar.
He is also planning to work towards his RICS chartered quantity surveyor status with company owner, Tim Lloyd.
“I’ve already got involved in a wide range of different projects with CQS Solutions and I really appreciate the one-to-one advice and support within the team,” said Omar.
Tim Lloyd said that he was delighted to have Omar on board.
“He has settled in really well and we are all looking forward to helping him continue building his experience. He is a real asset to the team,” said Tim.
