Our History

Tim Castle and Richard Owen founded Castle Owen (formally Bond Bryan Building Surveying Ltd) in 2001. Having built an enviable reputation for our quality of professional service and expertise, the time was right in 2016, our 15th anniversary year, for us to reinforce our independence and establish our new identity. Our success is attributable to our positive and proactive approach and our ability to solve complex technical problems. We build long standing relationships with our clients through our dedication to them, and the provision of exceptional quality of service.
