Surveying

Buildings deteriorate throughout their life and can contain design or construction defects dating from their original construction or poorly executed repair work. Failure to identify defects and implement remedial work at the correct time, can lead to disproportionally high expenditure at a later date.

Consideration should therefore be given to obtaining a survey report prior to acquiring a property and at regular intervals during its occupation. Our comprehensive range of surveying services include:

  • Condition Surveys of Commercial Premises
  • Planned Maintenance Surveys
  • Life Cycle Cost Surveys
  • Schedules of Condition and Dilapidations.
  • Defect Analysis and Reports
  • Measured Building Surveys
  • Site Surveys and Levelling.

Building occupiers / owners and employers need to comply with an increasing range of legislation to fulfil their obligations to protect occupants, staff and members of the public. We are able to provide specialist surveys and reports to assist in achieving compliance.
