Deep Knowledge of PropTech Practice


Anthony Walker commented on his new appointment:

“Topscan is a business that I have admired for many years. It has grown significantly since its CAD service beginnings almost 30 years ago and is now delivering a bigger range of services to clients in healthcare, education, hotel and leisure, retail and many other sectors.

“I’m really looking forward to driving future growth through a new project management offering and other innovations harnessing technology in the built environment.”

Julia Kemp, Managing Director of Topscan, added:

“Anthony joins us at a critical time for our clients, all of whom are looking very closely at how they manage their buildings and facilities for increased safety, health and security in the future. 

He marries a deep knowledge of Proptech Practice with project management expertise and many years’ practical experience of surveying major property estates.
