Our Heritage Survey Services

We offer building pathology services that enable the identification of decays, defects and other fragilities using non-intrusive methods and techniques. Using laser scanning and surveying equipment enhances our understanding of the original project and the construction techniques used to produce it, and the identification of the different structural elements concerning each other.

When to carry out a Heritage Building Survey

A heritage building survey will be carried out before reviewing a local heritage register or a local government planning scheme. This enables the survey’s findings to prepare local heritage registers and be reflected in planning schemes. In places with no information about heritage resources, hence little active protection, it is crucial to carry out a heritage survey as soon as time and resources are available. Our heritage surveyors will provide the required level of detail to all historic buildings and their fragile features.
