Course summary

This professionally accredited course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to give expert advice on construction, maintenance, repair and refurbishment of buildings, always ensuring compliance with statutory regulations. What’s more, we will encourage you to develop the innovation and creativity required to tackle the complex problems now facing the industry around space, sustainability, cost and resilience, thanks to the growing instability of the world’s climate. You will be taught by staff with academic and professional experience in building surveying, architectural practice, civil engineering and the construction industry, having worked in a variety of professional roles such as building surveying, quantity surveying, construction management, architectural technology and a wide range of professional organisations.We also have a strong portfolio of industry-related research, particularly in the areas of low carbon building technology, sustainable construction materials and engineering education, which ensures you stay abreast of new technologies and emerging issues. Many of our staff are active researchers and actively engage with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).With excellent prospects and attractive salaries. You could find yourself involved in all aspects of construction and it is now one of the broadest areas of surveying practice, taking in projects from a domestic extension to a major retail development. Building surveyors offer advice on many aspects of design and construction, including maintenance, repair, refurbishment and restoration of proposed and existing buildings.Building surveying work can also involve drawing up detailed plans, and advising on whether a grant might be available.

While work is going on, building surveyors’ project manage, are responsible for budgets and oversee work on site.
