Chartered Building Surveyors are highly valued professionals who offer a variety of services across the whole of the built environment.

The full range and attributes of Chartered Building Surveyors is too large to cover here, but some key highlights include:

Building pathology – Developing solutions to building failures
Key attributes: Analytical skills and practical construction knowledge

Design – Preparing conceptual and technical design proposals
Key attributes: Design flair and an innovative approach to problem solving

Chartered Building Surveyors can be both specialists and generalists. Generalists provide a one stop shop whereas specialists will focus on a particular area such as neighbourly matters or building defects.

Alternatively, Chartered Building Surveyors may choose to specialise in a market sector including, for example, retail or residential development or the hospitality sector. Whichever route Chartered Building Surveyors choose, their role demands an in-depth knowledge of construction design, costs and programmes as well as effective inter-personal and team-building skills.

A typical project will involve a variety of internal and external stakeholders – the client, the design team, the contractor, subcontractors and suppliers. Whilst this all adds to the variety of the Chartered Building Surveyors’ workload, it does demand excellent communication skills as well as a firm but diplomatic approach.
