BCH Directors

Martyn Barrett



Martyn Barrett is the B in BCH and was one of the founding Directors in 2006. Martyn is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor (MRICS), a Chartered Insurance Practitioner (ACII) and a Chartered Loss Adjuster (FCILA FUEDI-ELAE). It is this triangle of knowledge that is at the bedrock of the service provided by BCH. Having spent 25 years working for major loss adjusting companies, Martyn knows the impact of large losses and the difference that having a correct Reinstatement Cost Assessment can make to the process of settling a claim. His knowledge and experience mean that he is a valued and respected speaker at industry events and sits on the panel responsible for the RICS’s Guidance Note on the Reinstatement Cost Assessment of Buildings, 3rd edition, 2018.

His vision for BCH sees the company remaining in the forefront of provision for Reinstatement Cost Assessments for the UK insurance market. Martyn encourages innovation and strives to ensure BCH continues to be a great place to work. He enjoys the buzz of client meetings, particularly those based in many of the country’s most iconic buildings.

In his spare time Martyn is a keen runner, undertaking his first marathon aged 55. He also enjoys fell walking and likes to travel, balancing the resultant carbon footprint by conservation work on common land near to home.
