KRT was formed in 2017 by Keith Rankine and Keith Tickner by the merger of their independent building consultancies following their successful collaboration on a number of projects. Keith Rankine had set up 2KR Building Consultants in 2015 and Keith Tickner had set up KT Building Consultancy in 2016, both having previously managed and led significant programmes of work for prominent building surveying practice’s. Peter Grantham joined KRT in April 2018, broadening the skill base and capacity even further and introducing the experience he gained as Chief Operating Officer at his former practice.
