About Us

We are an independent Chartered Surveying practice providing the full spectrum of building surveying and project management services; with particular specialisms and expertise in historic buildings, defects investigations, lead consultancy, design and specification.

We have developed a longstanding client-base ranging from central and local government, to NHS trusts and independent schools across London and the South East.

We believe we offer something different; a personal, client focused approach to every project, combined with our technical expertise and experience, or our passion for buildings, both ancient and modern.
