Building survey inspections

Whether a property is a short or long-term investment, its success relies on clear and concise advice regarding its condition so that informed decisions can be made to maximise your asset’s value.

Our surveyors specialise in commercial, residential and industrial buildings with the experience to investigate, identify, record and resolve building issues with the most cost-effective solutions.

We assist at all stages of the property lifecycle including acquisition, defect diagnosis, condition recording, condition assessments, planned maintenance and dilapidations.  We focus on providing a balanced and professional opinion, so that you have a clear understanding of the risks associated with your asset now and in the future.

We provide a tailor-made service, to suit your requirements and those of your assets. Our specialists identify, assess, and advise on remedial action across the following areas:

  • deficiencies in design and installation
  • building defects and on-going deterioration
  • deleterious materials liable to cause harm
  • non-compliance with statutory legislation such as Building Regulations or the Equality Act and advice on remedial works.

Our professional advice is used in a range of ways by our clients. This may be to arrange remedial works to resolve a defect, to assist the negotiations process for acquisition or recording the condition as part of lease agreement. 

Whatever the purpose of the report, having up to date, accurate information with a professional opinion is an important step in maximising the value and safety of an asset.
