Key Experience:

David Allcott founded Allcott Associates in 1999 in order to provide a professional building consultancy service for the Midlands area. Prior to setting up his own business David worked in many various fields of the construction sector, including structural engineering, subsidence and underpinning, dilapidations, chemical contaminations, project management and general management.

David has gained his degree in Civil Engineering in 1979 and became a member of the Insitute of Civil Engineers (MICE) in the same year. He quickly built on his academic knowledge with various roles in high profile construction companies, gaining valuable experience which he then applied in the foundation of his own business.

David gained Insurance loss adjusting expertise first with Thomas Howle Self and then Crawford & Co Loss Adjusters as a Senior Engineer dealing with Subsidence, Fires and Fraudulent Building Claims.

David progressed to Loss Adjusters Miller Fishers as Head of Subsidence which after 2 years he left to form Allcott Associates which deals with Insurance claims on behalf of Insurers and Loss adjusters.

In his latest role as Senior Partner David has specialised in project management, contract administration, structural appraisals and expert witness.
