Building surveyors provide professional advice on property and construction projects, which can range from modest adaptations and repairs to multi-million-pound structures. They inspect new and existing buildings, identifying defects and advising repair, maintenance and
restoration. They may also implement preventative measures to keep buildings in good condition and look for ways to make buildings sustainable. Building surveyors may also project manage building works, and some offer a design service too.
