Heritage Building Inspections

A background in Quantity Survey, CIOB and  IHBC memberships and a strong personal interest in Historical buildings, traditional construction methodology and materials has enabled me to gather the knowledge necessary to treat historical buildings with the sympathy and respect they deserve.

We have permission from the CAA for commercial drone operations and carry specialised drone insurance in addition to our regular public liability coverage.

Safe, Quick and Accurate Data Collection

Informed decision making is possible when survey data accurately reflects the unique nature of historical buildings. Understanding the construction methods and materials of heritage buildings is key to providing clients with relevant data that enable informed decisions.

Our process allows inspections to be conducted safely and quickly without the need for expensive scaffolding or lifting platforms.

Our findings will be outlined in a clear easy to understand report.
