Workman’s Building Surveying Services team provide the full range of professional surveying services to clients.

 This includes:

  • Planned Preventative Maintenance and Building Defects Diagnosis;
  • Advice on landlord and tenant issues; and,
  • Professional services such as insurance valuations and party wall matters.

Reinstatement Cost Assessments (RCAs)

We take an accurate and informative approach to RCAs, explaining how and why the figures have been calculated.

Working with the online tool, Building Cost Information Service (BCIS), we can perform Reinstatement Cost Assessments along with Uplift Assessments.

Our building surveyors are experienced with fire insurance reinstatement work, from localised repairs to complete rebuilds.

RCAs are often undertaken as part of a pre-acquisition survey and included within the overall Due Diligence report. They can also be carried out either as a standalone exercise or as part of a portfolio-wide instruction to meet insurer’s requirements.

Party Wall matters

Our knowledge of construction, statutory requirements and associated risk enable us to take a pragmatic approach to party wall disputes.

The aim is to reach an agreement between the respective parties promptly supplementing this with the necessary documentation.

We assist with work for a property on the behalf of:

  • our appointing owner, or;
  • assisting our appointing owner where work happens adjacent to their property.

For instance, building owners and adjoining owners.

We also provide advice about crane over sail and scaffold licences as part of party wall matters. Additionally, we help with standalone instructions, acting as Third Surveyor.

Other Building Surveyor Services

Disability Audit Reports and Implementation of Recommendations

These highlight problematic areas that discriminate against disabled members of the community. Consequently, we can propose modifications which both keep with the property’s design and meet legislative requirements.

Expert Witness and Dispute Resolution

We act as an expert witness where a dispute has arisen and professional, impartial advice is required.

Schedules of Condition

These typically record the condition of a property as part of a legal agreement/party wall. This particularly ties in with neighbour related matters prior to work commencing.

Our nationwide team of more than 100 qualified Building Surveyors operates from Workman's network of 12 UK offices, providing clients with professional, commercially-sound technical expertise.
