Building Surveying make a valuable contribution to every aspect of property ownership and occupation.

We also provide an invaluable resource for Landlords and Tenants dealing with licences to alter; schedules of condition and maintenance projects.
We are the only Building Surveying team in the market complemented with specialist consultants: geo-environmental engineers, quantity surveyors, building services engineers, cladding consultants and measurement experts.
For anyone buying, selling, developing, occupying or funding a property project, our Building Surveys team will give you a distinct commercial advantage. From the earliest point in any transaction our insight, analysis and market knowledge can save you money as well as identifying and managing your exposure to risk. We approach technical due diligence intelligently and thoughtfully, scrutinising every aspect of the property, leaving no stone unturned. We analyse each aspect – and each property in a portfolio – individually and from every perspective.

Whether it’s a single property or a large portfolio, our building maintenance team examines each building with the same meticulous attention to detail – looking at everything from the structure and fabric to the engineering services. We work closely with our engineering services colleagues to put a comprehensive strategy in place, so building maintenance is expertly scheduled throughout the property life cycle, and capital expenditure is managed effectively.
