Building surveyors offer professional advice on all factors affecting existing buildings such as building defects, alterations, renovations and extensions. They work mostly on site to monitor the performance of structures and devise ways to improve them or correct flaws in their design.
Surveyors work along side local planning bodies, clients, construction workers, and other professinals to ensure projects meet the relevant safety, sustainability and preservation standards.
Surveying is an active job role. While building surveyors are office based, they are also likely to make regular site visits and work outside whatever the weather.
