After receiving a brief, we will often be asked to survey a structure or building to ascertain its current condition, its historic, architectural and structural characteristics and potential conservation or restoration requirements.
A crucial aspect of a survey is the identification of the structure’s evidential, historical, aesthetic and communal significance and its importance within local, regional and national contexts. This assessment guides decisions about further works. While conducting surveys, our experienced team consider the principles of conservation to ensure that unnecessary or inappropriate work which could negatively affect the structure is not carried out.
Surveys provide a solid foundation from which informed decisions can be made regarding conservation, restoration and adaptive reuse.
Upon completion of survey a report is prepared which will include specification, budget costings and carbon reduction recommendations. We have vast experience in the inspection of traditional buildings, and we are able to advise on the most suitable methods of repairing stone, terracotta, brick, timber and concrete.
“The clean at Faulkner House looks fantastic- a huge improvement and to my knowledge, we haven’t experienced anywhere near the levels of water ingress through the windows we were expecting. Cracking job.”

Our exhaustive surveys can include non-destructive testing and industrial abseiling to examine your structure from its rooftop to its foundations along with Drone surveying and 3D Scanning. Our many years of experience in dealing with historic structures enables us to conduct our surveys whilst closely following guidelines for buildings which have a listed status.
Industrial abseiling is an effective method of working at heights using ropes and specialised equipment to survey areas of a building without scaffolding, cranes or cherry pickers.
Drone surveys offer efficient and accurate mapping of buildings and structures. Collect aerial data and create high resolution maps, 3D models and digital elevation models.
Understand what is happening to your structure through carbonation testing and analysis. We summarise our finding and provide an easy-to-understand report. We can then offer a targeted concrete repair solutions to address any issues.
3D point cloud surveying involves collecting and processing data from millions of individual points captured by laser scanning. Gain a high level of accurate data without disturbing the fabric of a building.
