About Us

We Do:

We strive to bring excellence to everything we do, from pre-purchased commercial and residential building surveys, schedules of conditions and architectural design (2D, CAD and 3D Visualisation) and project management services, for both residential and commercial sectors.

CIOB-Chartered-Building-Consultancy-LogoWe pride ourselves on giving the same high level of service to both small surveys and developments as well as the larger commercial projects and clients.
