G&T Announces New NLA and CPA NextGen Representatives
Associate Uwais Paderwala and project surveyor Blair Hercules are named as G&T’s New London Architecture’s (NLA) and City Property Association’s (CPA) NextGen Representatives.
Taking over as members of the NLA and CPA NextGen committees Uwais and Blair will play an important role in shaping the 2022 programmes, whilst promoting increased collaboration across our NextGen partnerships. The groups include a variety of professionals, agents, architects, developers, planners and investors from some of the industry’s top organisations - all of which are dedicated to supporting a more sustainable and diverse London.
"As we move towards new ways of working, living and socialising in the City, I’m looking forward to engaging with people from all sectors of London’s built environment and utilising this opportunity to encourage the next generation of innovative professionals."
G&T Project Surveyor
Blair joined G&T in 2018 as a graduate surveyor on the firm’s Chartership Programme. Based in London he specialises in commercial, residential and hospitality sectors. Through his role as G&T’s CPA NextGen representative, he hopes to encourage new talent into the industry, championing resilience and inclusivity across the City.
"NextGen is the generation that thinks about the next steps. It’s not an age or a type it is about ideas and how we can evolve together. I am excited to be a part of the NLA sounding board, helping to contribute to a sustainable and smarter future."
Uwais joined G&T in 2011 as an apprentice. Now an associate, he works within the commercial sector. A strong advocate for apprenticeships he helped create the industry’s leading trailblazing programme for apprenticeships and was named RICS Apprentice of the Year in 2019. Having presented the NLA Sounding Board’s key industry asks at the LREF NextGen Reception, he hopes to continue to support the groups hard work by encouraging real change.
