Why Should We Use Senior Building Surveyor

In this modern day and age, there are many different ways we can construct any type of building. However, it is essential to choose the right contractor for your project. The best way to do this is by seeking a Senior Building Surveyor who will ensure that your property meets all relevant building regulations and provide you with peace of mind as you embark on your new project.

Building Surveyors Can Assist With All Types Of Building Projects, Including:

Building Surveyors can assist with all types of building projects, including:

  • Extensions and alterations
  • Complete design and build projects
  • Residential property surveys.
  • Commercial property surveys.

The role of a Building Surveyor is not limited to residential houses or flats but extends to commercial properties such as shops, offices, factories etc. This may require extensive site visits, external inspections and contract monitoring services throughout the construction period so that any defects can be identified before they become serious problems that could result in expensive legal action against your company or landowner if left unattended until after completion has taken place.

Senior Building SurveyorExtensions And Alterations

Extensions and alterations are often complicated and require a high level of expertise. Hiring a building surveyor is a good idea if you want to get the best value for money and avoid costly mistakes.

Senior Building surveyor at City Plan Services has experience in all building projects and can help you get better results in less time if you hire them. They can assist with dilapidation claims, contract administration and property matters too!

The building surveyor will be able to identify issues that need to be addressed and help you deal with them before they become too costly. They can also advise on the most cost-effective method of repair or replacement, which is likely cheaper than doing nothing!

Complete Design And Build Projects


  • Design and build projects are often more complex than a standard extension or alteration.
  • Design and build projects can be more expensive to complete.
  • Design and building projects may require a more excellent range of skills from the builder.
  • New builds are usually more expensive than design and build projects.
  • Extensions and alterations can be more expensive than new builds, as they often involve a larger area or include materials such as steel joists that aren’t typically used in extensions or alterations. They also take longer to complete due to having to deal with existing structures where the building has already been built on top of other facilities, which means there’s less space for you to work with. Extensions may also involve structural changes meaning new foundations might need laying down before any actual building work begins!


Residential Property Surveys

A property surveyor at City Plan Services can help you in several areas, including:

  • Structural surveys. This includes checking for structural defects, such as cracks in the walls or foundations. You may want to do this if you plan on selling your home or are concerned about its condition and want to know exactly what state it’s in before renovating.
  • Dampness checks. A surveyor can check for dampness throughout your home, which is essential if you have a family member who suffers from breathing problems or allergies. They might be susceptible to mould growth due to dampness issues like leaking roofs or faulty plumbing systems that allow water into the walls in certain parts of the house where there is little ventilation.
  • Electrical safety checks. An electrician will check all electrical sockets and wiring inside your property, looking for any loose connections that may be dangerous for anyone who uses them after you’ve moved out—including pets!

Commercial Property Surveys

A commercial property survey is an excellent way to evaluate the condition of a building, identify any defects, and determine how much it would cost to repair them. This can be invaluable information if you’re considering buying or selling property.

Commercial property surveys can determine the value of a property, which may help you consider offers on your home. If someone offers less than what they’re asking for their own house, then maybe there’s something wrong with it that needs fixing before you’d be willing to pay the total price yourself! If there are problems with your building (or if there aren’t), buying insurance could be very expensive very quickly.

Dilapidation Claims

A dilapidation claim is a claim for the cost of repairs to a property. It is often used when a tenant moves out of a property and the landlord claims from the tenant for the cost of repairs, or vice versa. The landlord can claim any repairs needed to return it to its pre-lease condition, including any damage caused by fair wear and tear (or reasonable use). The tenant must also ensure that they return the property in good repair but consider any moderate wear and tear over time as part of his/her responsibility.

Contract Administration

Contract administration is the process of managing a contract between two parties. The contract administrator is responsible for managing the contract and ensuring that the contractor meets its legal obligations.

Contract administration has been defined as “the management of contracts by a third party, usually an expert in that particular field, which is then monitored closely during construction to ensure compliance with agreed standards and objectives.” A senior building surveyor can help you in this case.

To facilitate this process, we provide you with complete design and build services for your project. When you work with us, we handle everything from start to finish: we will do all of your planning. We will provide you with a detailed plan that outlines exactly what needs to be done. We will oversee every part of your project until completion; and finally, when it comes time for payment or filing permits or other administrative tasks associated with building construction projects like these here? That’s where our professional staff comes back into play!
