Jamie Clack joined the team at PSE Associates six years ago as an apprentice and has been combining work with studying for a degree in quantity surveying at London South Bank University.
Jamie’s first job in construction was with Skanska UK on a civil engineering BT contract and he has always had an interest in construction owing to his late grandfather who owned his own construction company.
After obtaining a basic understanding of construction, Jamie realised that it was the career he wished to pursue and jumped at the chance to become a junior at PSE Associates.
He now works within the pub team, primarily focusing on projects involving Star Pubs & Bars but also assisting with other pub clients on developments ranging from £50,000 to well over a million pounds.
“My role involves initially working on feasibility estimates with designers and property managers and then value engineering where required to meet clients’ expectations,” Jamie explains.
“Once the project is underway then I’m often out on site, which I really enjoy.”
Projects which Jamie works on can be anywhere across the South of England.
“I really enjoy working within the pub team,” says Jamie. “It’s fast-moving with quick turnarounds – often just three to four weeks – and it can be a big transformation at times, which is exciting.” Jamie adds that, as a firm, PSE Associates has built a reputation of being adaptable
“We are flexible and adapt to meet our various clients’ needs,”

“Sleepless nights sometimes add to the pressure but the joy that our son brings us makes it all worthwhile,” says Jamie. “He has visited the office a few times and, who knows, he may be the next generation of PSE Associates surveyors.”
