Bola Abisogun OBE

DiverseCity Surveyors

Founder & Chairman


Having delivered in excess of £8bn in Capital Projects across a range of sectors [with a strong
residential / mixed-use bias], and an over-arching intention to deploy digital twins into ‘regulated
professional services’ citing cultural change, Bola was appointed to and sat on the Gemini Council at
the Centre for Digital Built Britain and remains a co-author of the infamous Gemini Papers and the
Digital Twin Toolkit. He is a well-documented industry disruptor, innovative systems developer, and an
eminent Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). He is the Founder & Chairman of
DiverseCity Surveyors (DCS) – a highly successful peer-to-peer network offering excellence, career
support and thought-leadership from across their global, non-traditional talent pool, along with
culturally competent support services, for surveyors who are members, or aspiring members of RICS.
Amongst Bola’s other commitments to ESG, young people and diversity, he has recently been
appointed to serve on the City of London Corporations’ Taskforce set to shape and promote [by 2025]
the skills required to decarbonise all commercial buildings in the Square Mile, across the City of London
and allied inner-city boroughs by 2040. He works extensively with the Mayor of London and the GLA
and since 2013, has been the Chair of the ‘Moving on Up’ (MoU) initiative, London Advisory
Board (funded by Trust for London and the City Bridge Trust).
In the 2019 New Years Honours list, Bola was awarded an OBE for services to Diversity and to Young
People in the Construction Industry; by HM Queen Elizabeth II.
