Planned preventative maintenance

We help you implement and manage a strategic PPM (planned preventative maintenance) approach for efficient maintenance, repairs and improvement to your property over the long term.

Building surveys and due diligence

Our knowledge of the market ensures that building surveys are tailored to your specific requirements and property strategy, and adapted to the type of property or legal interest being purchased. With 12 million sq ft of London “Big Building” surveys completed in the last two years for example, we are one of the leading teams in the sector.

Development and construction monitoring

As part of our monitoring process, we align specifications, quality of workmanship and materials, cost and compliance with your specific requirements.

Contract administration

We ensure that building projects satisfy time, quality, cost and commercial viability objectives in order to meet the needs of lenders, occupiers and investors.

Insurance reinstatement cost assessments

Our team of specialists is composed of building surveyors and quantity surveyors with extensive experience in dealing with complex property types. Our expertise covers both commercial and residential buildings, ranging from historic and listed properties to airports and data centres.

Party wall and neighbourly matters

We represent both owners and tenants who are developing properties or have interests in properties adjacent to those undergoing works. Thanks to our experience in all party wall and neighbourly matters, as well as their commercial consequences, our expertise is highly regarded in the industry.

Energy performance certificates and sustainability

These factors are among the most important considerations for today’s buildings.
