We possess the diverse skillset essential for successful project delivery, whether for commercial or residential clients.

Our services can help you, from design work for building control & planning approval, to complete Architectural Design, Specification Production, Contract Administration & Project Management for an entire project.



We inspect a landlord’s property and produce a Schedule of Dilapidations.  This lists any breaches in the tenant’s lease agreement regarding repairs, and the work required by the Landlord to rectify these, often with costs.  The Schedule is usually served to the Tenant through a Solicitor.

Client Care

We pride ourselves on our personal, professional and quality service.  As a small practice (at present) we can provide a more personal service, one we believe can rival that of larger practices. We can see the bigger picture and have problem solving & analytic abilities not often found elsewhere in this sector.

Latest Technology

We have invested heavily in the latest technology, both on site and in the office. We employ the best imaging technology for defect analysis and modern equipment for electronic documentation. This creates time savings which we can pass on to the client with a quicker, low cost service.

We have over 25 years of surveying experience across a range of sectors including public, social housing, loss adjusting and private practice.

Our team are highly qualified with a range of accreditations, and are affiliated with the leading professional bodies in this field.
