Overview

As we create new buildings, we also need to manage existing ones better.

Building surveyors provide a portfolio of professional services to a range of professionals and clients in the property and construction industry.

These include project management, legal and technical advice, building surveys and reports, defect diagnosis and conservation, as well as design solutions for new build and refurbishment schemes.

It's a varied and exciting career, with plenty of demand in the market for talented graduates.
