Appropriate Surveys on Quality of Commercial Building

Building Surveys which are also described as Structural Surveys are a kind of health check up for the buildings.

It is the most thorough property inspection which will provide a professional, detailed and unbiased evaluation of the overall condition of a property. It also provides details that will help in taking an informed decision before buying or selling a property.

Building surveys are recommended for old buildings or properties that are constructed without professional design, which are drastically modified or is planned for major modification.

The age of the property is no guarantee for being in good health. A well maintained older building may be some times better in health than modern buildings with significant structural issues.

Building Surveys can uncover underlying faults and has the potential to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Our Building surveyors are trained and experienced to carryout surveys on almost all kinds of civil and steel structures.

The structural survey generally includes:

  • Checking the availability of original plan and structural drawing of the building with the present condition. No structural analysis will be carried out.
  • Visual inspection of the structure from ground to roof without opening up the structural fabric of the building. Report will be prepared based on whatever is visible.
