Building Surveyor Jobs

Building Surveyors are responsible for delivering advice on construction and property projects. Building surveyor positions require candidates to present advice in the form of structured reports, known as Building Surveys. Building surveyors will look to identify structural issues and provide means to rectify such defects, as well as checking the plans, drawings and specifications for new buildings.

  • Prepare and cost project designs for future buildings.
  • Advise clients on projects and provide clients with support regarding health and safety features of buildings.
  • Ensure buildings are completed to a high standard whilst remaining within budget.
  • Provide guidelines to preserve and maintain historical buildings.
