Surveying touches almost everything in our lives, shaping much of the world in which we live.

Surveyors spend their careers valuing, enhancing, measuring and protecting the world’s physical assets. Right now, somewhere in the world, surveyors are busy creating the latest Olympic stadium, protecting fragile reefs from destruction or negotiating the next big property deal. With amazing prospects, it truly is a career that could take you anywhere in the world.

Within the remit of Surveying, there are various different job types and pathways that can be explored, including Building Surveying, Quantity Surveying and General Practice.

Building Surveying

Building surveyors provide professional advice on property and construction. They complete detailed reports, identify defects, advise on repair and maintenance options, get involved with designing new structures as well as sometimes working with buildings of architectural or historic importance. Find out more

Quantity Surveying

A quantity surveyor manages all costs relating to building and civil engineering projects, from the initial calculations to producing reports the final figures. Working for either the client or contractor, they seek to minimise the costs of a project and enhance value for money, while still achieving the required standards and quality. This includes ensuring statutory building regulations are met. Find out more
