Commercial Building surveys in Birmingham

Commercial and industrial building surveys are aimed at giving potential purchasers and leaseholders a snapshot picture of the condition of premises prior to taking on obligations as owner or leaseholder. 

We undertake commercial surveys on a wide range of Birmingham properties including: warehouses, restaurant, high street shops, offices and more. 

The overall picture gained from the building survey and associated investigations will provide an invaluable starting point for building occupiers and managers to consider future maintenance should the acquisition proceed.
