Reiss joined Rapleys in December 2021 and is head of the Project Management / Employer’s Agent team in London. He has predominantly worked with local authorities and registered providers to deliver affordable housing, including extra care developments.
Stemming from a building contractor background, Reiss studied as a Building Surveyor before developing his skills to focus on Project Management and associated services. He has delivered numerous types of residential developments, including conversion/adaptation of existing stock, affordable rent, shared ownership, vertical extension and specialised housing for the later living community. Experience working as a Building Surveyor and Principal Designer has enabled Reiss to contribute to the design and delivery of projects, with careful consideration of commercial and end user requirements.

Lessons learnt in this particular area will offer value to care sector developments.
