CLAIRE FENWICK NAMED AS PRESIDENT OF THE SURVEY ASSOCIATION (TSA)

March 27, 2024

Spatial Dimensions founder and Managing Director, Claire Fenwick was voted to serve as president at TSA Annual General Meeting held at Silverstone race circuit on Wednesday 27th March.

Claire was delighted to accept this prestigious role and in doing so became the first female president of the association.

Formed in 1979 TSA has over 200 company members operating throughout the UK, employing thousands of survey professionals and its full and associate members turned over £279 million last year. 

Claire commented, “I am delighted to be voted in as TSA President, as this completes a journey for me. After University I decided to retrain as a Geomatics Surveyor and went on to complete The Surveying Course with TSA’s sister company, The Survey School.

Specialising in measured building surveys and 3D models, I founded Spatial Dimensions in 2012. I have since won several awards and done a great deal to promote surveying as a desirable profession and encourage more women to join. To become the first female president in TSA history is a huge honour.

I am a great believer in the benefits of sharing knowledge and upholding standards and this forms part of the TSA’s role as a professional body in the ever-changing world of Geomatics.

I hope to contribute and have a positive impact with this, helping the TSA, other companies and individuals to attain standards set and mark the way for whatever the future technology holds for us.”

ABOUT TSA

TSA’s primary purpose is to represent and promote the interests of Land Survey companies and professionals in the United Kingdom. TSA serves as a collective voice for the profession, advocating for policies and standards that enhance the practice of land surveying and geospatial services.

Working hard to promote and maintain industry standards TSA collaborates with regulatory bodies and government organisations to ensure that surveying practices adhere to high-quality standards and are aligned with relevant regulations and legislation. TSA members are encouraged to uphold these standards, fostering a culture of professionalism and integrity within the profession.

They provide a platform for networking and collaboration among surveying professionals and focus on education and training, supporting the development of surveying skills and expertise. TSA is also a valuable resource for businesses and individuals seeking surveying services.

TSA is also involved in lobbying Government departments when appropriate and other agencies such as the Environment Agency regarding policies likely to affect or involve the survey profession. TSA meets regularly with RICS and CICES on various issues and has established a group called the SLG, or Survey Liaison Group, that Claire attends regularly. This body convenes at regular intervals to examine matters of mutual interest and to ensure that there is little or no duplication of effort by the three bodies.  Representatives from the UK government’s Geospatial Commission also regularly join SLG meetings.

Claire is looking forward to getting started in her new role, whilst combining it with her work leading the team here at Spatial Dimensions. Our entire team are extremely proud of her recognition in the wider industry. It is a significant achievement and a testament to her expertise and experience in the surveying profession. Her leadership and vision will be invaluable in shaping the industry’s future and ensuring that the TSA continues to provide valuable services and support to its members. We wish her all the best in her new role.
