Building surveying is a well-established profession and it is one of the broadest areas of surveying practice. It covers a wide range of projects ranging from residential extensions to large-scale commercial and mixed-use developments. Building surveyors are involved in the design, construction and management of real estate assets, with specialisms including defects, dilapidations, maintenance, repair, refurbishment and restoration, building regulations, construction contracts, disputes resolution between neighbours or landlords and tenants, health and safety, and project management.

This required breadth of knowledge and skills, allied with the breadth of career opportunity within the construction industry has a significant influence on the design of our suite of construction courses. Graduates on these courses are successfully employed as building surveyors, quantity surveyors, construction managers and project managers, working for clients, developers, consultants, contractors and sub-contractors, on private, commercial, national and international projects. To compliment this career choice, the course is designed with a broad syllabus, a compulsory industrial placement year experience, and a choice of degree pathway in the final year of study.
