Who we are


Matthew Bassano BSc (Hons) MRICS


Matthew founded TCL in 2009 and the company has since enjoyed steady year on year growth. Setting up the business mid-recession was challenging although it was in these circumstances that Matthew identified a gap in the market for surveying and project management expertise at affordable rates.

As such, TCL’s mission is to offer top-quality services provided by senior level professionals at a competitive rate.

Matthew has over 10 years of experience as a Building Surveyor. His areas of expertise are Project Management, Building Pathology, Party Wall, Dilapidations, Licence for Alteration, Rebuilding Cost Assessments and Contract Administration.
