Building Surveys

Building surveys are designed to provide you with information about your building so that you can make informed decisions. My surveys cover a wide range of aspects including general condition, specific defects, suitability for adaptation or alteration and potential for development.

Following my building survey I will provide you with a concise report, clearly identifying the key issues and making suitable recommendations.

Condition Survey


This type of building survey assesses the current construction and condition of your building, identifies defects and makes recommendations for repair or further investigation of problems.

You may be interested in this type of survey if you want to understand the scope and cost of maintenance issues, if you intend to move house or if you are interested in extending or adapting your building and want to understand the extent of the associated work required.

Targeted Defects


This type of survey assesses a specific problem or set of problems that are manifest in your building and makes recommendations for repair.

You may be interested in this survey if a new problem has just come to light or if a persistent problem has not been resolved following several attempts at repair.


Development Potential


This type of survey assesses the potential of your building to be altered, adapted and extended.

It is designed to give you an overview of the challenges you face, the process involved and the likelihood of success in obtaining necessary consents.



Measured Survey


This type of survey is predominantly used to produce drawings of your building, either in part or as a whole.

This is usually undertaken to establish a design when looking to alter, adapt or extend, identifying location and establishing quantities.




Access Audit


This type of survey looks at how the building provides access to and within for its potential users, including those with mobility, cognitive and sensory impairments.

The focus is on identifying obstacles to inclusive use and recommendation of solutions with an understanding of the scope, process and cost of those solutions.
