Why did you choose surveying as a profession?
I’ve always wanted to work in a profession where I wouldn’t be tied to a desk 5 days a week. Being a Building Surveyor provides me with a great balance between working in an office at a desk and being able to get out of the office on site visits.

What is the most interesting job you’ve done?

I have been involved in the conversion of offices into a college. It was rewarding to be involved in a scheme where we were able to transform a disused space into a high quality teaching and learning facility for college students.

How did you get into your profession?

I started my career as a joiner/builder but after 10 winters working outside in the freezing cold I decided I needed a change. I started to look at my options and building surveying seemed the most fitting route for me to take given my experience in construction technology. I was accepted into University a few months later and the rest is history.

What is the most interesting job you’ve done ?

I am currently organising a large scale fire test for one of our clients to see if the façade systems installed on their buildings are safe. It will be a really interesting experience to witnessing the fire test live!

Why did you choose surveying as a profession?

Surveying suits my skills and abilities. I am creative and I enjoy working as a team. In addition to this, I have the ability to work independently when required to a high level.


How did you get into your profession?

I have a number of family members who are involved in the profession in various roles. This meant that I was aware of the numerous roles that surveying offered as a career and this appealed to me.

What is your favourite service that we offer and why?
Building surveying – biased as I’m a BS but the breadth of services we provide within one profession is unparalleled. Great value for money providing a one-stop shop for clients.

What is the oddest thing to happen onsite?
My colleague and I were asked to put on ‘disguises’ i.e. our client’s jackets to disguise that we were surveyors investigating a party wall issue. Apparently CCTV was aimed at the house!

What is your favourite service that we offer and why?

My favourite service is rights of light, I enjoy the mixed workload of producing drawings, writing reports, and engaging in negotiations

Why did you choose surveying as a profession?
I’ve always had an interest in the built environment and after studying my bachelors in Architecture I decided that I was more suited to surveying


How did you get into your profession?
Having previously worked in a multi-discipline practice I chose to specialise my skills and the rights of light sector is the most interesting to me

What has surprised you about working in this industry?
Every day is different – as a building surveyor we undertake such a wide range of instructions which definitely keeps things interesting. I find myself constantly learning new things which provides great job satisfaction.


What is your favourite service that we offer and why?
A combination of either a defect diagnosis survey or a planned preventative maintenance survey, followed by project managing the remedial works to ensure the longevity of the property. I find it satisfying to identify defects and then specify the remedial works and project manage them on site.


How did you get into your profession?
I did well at GCSE level so at the time I followed the majority of my friends into doing A levels. However, unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the A levels I had chosen so I ended up getting some careers advice and going to college instead to study a BTEC National Diploma in construction and the built environment which soon had me interested in pursuing a career in building surveying.

What is your favourite service that we offer and why?
Project Management – I find the diverse range of projects really exciting and with the UK`s net zero carbon target by 2050, there is an influx of projects adopting smart building solutions in order to drive down emissions and use energy more efficiently. It is rewarding to be delivering socially and environmentally responsible projects and help drive sustainability and wellbeing targets.


What is the most interesting job you’ve done?
Refurbishment and remodelling of a 40,000 ft² Histology Pathology and Rapid Response Laboratory while maintaining an operational clinical laboratory service. The complexity around logistics, multiple phases of work and working alongside the clinical scientists was really interesting.

What is your favourite service that we offer and why?
I enjoy dealing with party wall matters because I like the methodical process with clearly defined time frames and a standard procedure to follow. This makes it a lot easier to keep on top of progress, even when there are multiple negotiations ongoing because you can keep a tracker or calendar reminders to prompt you when you need to take the next step such as sending a reminder letter or appointing a surveyor on the other owner’s behalf.


Why did you choose surveying as a profession?
I always knew I wanted to be in the construction industry but wasn’t sure which route to go down within it. When choosing which universities to apply to and visiting on the open days, I went to numerous talks on the different subjects on offer. From these I decided that building surveying seemed like the most interesting area for me which would offer the most variety in my day to day role.
