With a thriving global construction industry, a career in surveying could open up new horizons to you across the world. Our Surveying (Building Surveying) BSc(Hons) focuses on the latest UK and international surveying practices and could help you gain the qualification and experience you need to find employment in this exciting industry sector. Building surveyors can take on a number of roles in the construction industry. Surveying property, diagnosing defects, designing and altering premises, managing contracts and providing professional advice to clients. This course gives you the chance to explore all sides of the profession, building up your technical, professional, legal and managerial skills as you go. One particularly important part of building surveying is complying with regulatory requirements for refurbishments and new build projects. So we’ll look at legislation like the 2015 Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations. Governments across the world are also encouraging the construction industry to introduce Lean Construction and Building Information Modelling (BIM). Lean Construction aims to manage and improve the whole process of design, construction and end-use of a building project to achieve minimum cost and maximum value. And Business Information Models help to manage the costs of materials and labour for a project, which can help Building Surveyors manage the building environment through its lifecycle. We’ll give you the opportunity to learn about both practices, and show you how you can deliver better value for clients, improve their processes and reduce waste in construction too. The degree is part of our suite of architecture and built environment courses. So you’ll be studying with peers from other subjects such as Construction Project Management, Architecture, Architectural Technology and Quantity Surveying. The chance to work collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams could help you stand out when you start your career. We believe in keeping your options open as you study too. Surveying (Building Surveying) BSc(Hons) is part of a suite of three courses that includes Surveying (Quantity Surveying) BSc(Hons) and Construction Project Management BSc(Hons). Once you’ve enrolled on one of the courses, you’re free to switch to one of the others (with the agreement of your tutors) between the first and second year if your interests change. You only have to apply for one course within the suite we offer.
