Building surveyors provide advise on property and construction, identifying defects, and advising options for maintenance and repair. They work on the development of new buildings, alongside the maintaining and restoration of existing properties - from residential and industrial, to leisure and historical projects. You'll be provided with detailed specialist knowledge and skills to advise on relevant processes. You will develop a detailed understanding of architectural styles and influences, the history of buildings and building techniques, the evaluation of building elements and the performance of building materials. You’ll learn to test and analyse all aspects of building performance, advise on alternative uses of existing buildings, supervise remediation and refurbishment projects, and to apply health and safety legislation. Our course is triple accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE), recognising the quality and relevance of our course content.
