Building Surveying - Coventry University

Building surveyors are involved in all aspects of property and construction, from overseeing huge commercial developments to planning domestic extensions, from maintaining heritage buildings to resolving planning disputes between landlords and tenants. Building surveying is a multidisciplinary subject, encompassing the fields of building pathology, construction technology, surveying techniques, design and specification, conservation and restoration, measurement of land and property, legal and regulatory compliance, contract administration, costing of construction works. This professionally accredited course is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to give expert advice on construction, maintenance, repair and refurbishment of buildings, always ensuring compliance with statutory regulations. What’s more, we will encourage you to develop the innovation and creativity required to tackle the complex problems now facing the industry around space, sustainability, cost and resilience, as a result of growing instability of the world’s climate. Coventry is home to the National Centre for Advanced Construction Technologies (ACT-UK) and offers cutting-edge facilities, including The Simulation Centre, the most advanced interactive people training and development centre in the UK. We enjoy excellent links with employers like Baily Garner, Severn Trent Water and Malone Associates, many of whom provide direct input into course development as members of our Building Advisory Boards. You will be taught by staff with academic and professional experience in building surveying, architectural practice, civil engineering and the construction industry, having worked in a variety of professional roles such as building surveying, quantity surveying, construction management, architectural technology and a wide range of professional organisations. We also have a strong portfolio of industry-related research, particularly in the areas of low carbon building technology, sustainable construction materials and engineering education, which ensures you stay abreast of new technologies and emerging issues. Teaching is highly practical; throughout the course, you will draw on real-life case studies, such as undertaking a real building survey for a client and presenting your findings to their asset management team, and you will participate in integrated project work, where theory is put into practice as soon as it is learned.
