WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The course themes include: building pathology, construction technology and environmental services, contract administration, design and specification, surveying techniques and principles, legal and regulatory compliance, commercial management of construction, conservation and restoration, measurement of land and property, and quantification and costing of construction works.
In the first year you will be introduced to the fundamental topics of building design and the construction process, which are essential to practitioners in all of the construction professions, and an understanding of what a building surveyor does.
In the second year you will focus on the practical aspects of what a building surveyor needs to know regarding building pathology, defect diagnosis and remedies. Construction law, conservation and adaptation of buildings also feature heavily at this level.
In your final year you will focus on topics such as contract management, historic buildings and building surveying practice and you will apply your knowledge into a ‘real life’ project that will reflect the skills required in professional practice.
In your final year you will focus on topics such as contract management, historic buildings, urban regeneration, and facilities and asset management.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?

In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.
You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you can develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.
