Ball & Berry appoints Barrett as new regional director

Leading Approved Inspector Ball & Berry has appointed a new Regional Director for the North West, to drive forward the business’ growth and expand its commercial and domestic portfolios.

Jennifer Barrett will be central to developing the Approved Inspector’s strategy in the North West, ensuring the company achieves consistently high levels of service delivery and compliance.

Jennifer joined the construction industry as a trainee civil engineer technician in 1992 and shortly after began undertaking a series of qualifications to enable her to progress her career. She secured a degree in Building Surveying in 1999, which saw her move into roles as a building control consultant, building control surveyor and senior project manager.

She joined Dunwoody Building Legislation as an associate director in 2005 and advanced to full director in 2012, before joining Jhai Ltd as regional manager in 2018. She was promoted to technical manager in 2020, ahead of joining Ball & Berry at the start of 2022.

Jennifer specialises in retail, industrial, public sector, education and residential developments, and has extensive experience in quality assurance and legislation. She holds an Executive Diploma in Management, was a former ACAI representative on the BCA Technical Committee, and is a member of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers.

Jennifer said: “Ball & Berry is a well-established and respected Approved Inspector, and I’m thrilled to be joining a business where I’ll be central in helping to shape its future direction in the North West.

“I’ll be bringing my leadership and technical skills to the fore, together with a wealth of experience in complex and major projects that includes numerous Government and Crown Estate developments.

“It’s also my ambition to provide guidance and support to younger team members who are in the early stages of their career, ensuring they receive the same progressive opportunities that I was awarded to flourish and grow.”

Paul McNeill, director at Ball & Berry, said: “Jennifer has such extensive experience in construction and building control, and with her raft of qualifications and sector memberships, she really is on the pulse of the industry.

“The insights and vast knowledge she’s gleaned from such a high calibre of roles over the last 30 years will be a huge advantage to Ball & Berry, and we’re delighted she’s joining us and helping to further develop our proposition in the North West.”
