We recently completed a Birmingham City Centre measured building project, which as well as requiring a 2D elevation of the building required a head for heights. This is not a standard question when we look to recruit new staff, but maybe it should be ?
Not that with some of the recent weather you could tell where we are. Clearly the reasons staff wear hi-vis clothing is so they can find each other on site…..
January has seen us off to a flying start with lots of local land and measured building surveys, plus the odd trip out further afield, to London and Surrey.
Our Devon office continues to grow in size and reputation, with orders received from as far away as Australia. We have been busy so far this year with land and measured building surveys in Plymouth, Exeter and our usual lovely haunts like Hope, Wembury, Salcombe and Totnes.
From our Worcestershire offices we work throughout the West Midlands and Birmingham undertaking all types of land surveys and measured building surveys, from grotty bits of wasteland to smart houses in the suburbs. One thing that caught our eye recently was the possible high speed rail link from London to Birmingham which might use the lovely Curzon Street Station building again, which we undertook a land survey and measured building survey of some years ago.
This building has a Grade I listing, but was sadly only used as a railway station for a short period. One of the big perks of the job of the land surveyor is knowing that in some small way you have played a role in the conservation and restoration of historic buildings and helped to put them back into a useful role.
