Our geographical reach puts our building experts close to clients right around the world. With expertise in all the critical aspects of building structures and fabric - as well as engineering systems - we develop strategies that optimise building performance and operational efficiency. Combining technical due diligence, compliance and certification with commissioning and engineering design into a single integrated organisation, we can move rapidly from understanding the issue and identifying the problem to devising a solution and implementing it. This simplifies points of contact, saves time and reduces risk.

Accuracy is crucial for you, so we approach every project meticulously, giving it the attention it needs to make sure you get the right results.
With cutting edge technology – such as 3D terrestrial scanners and 360 photography at our fingertips - our RICS-accredited experts capture spatial data with statistical accuracy that’s correct to 0.2%.
We work closely with you to understand your needs, drawing on the expertise of the wider CBRE team – from valuation experts to retail specialists – to deepen our understanding of what you want to achieve.
Our measured surveys contain more detail and more information. They can be used as the basis for architectural design in the form of sections, elevations and floor plans, as well as data for Building Information Models (BIM). All our reports meet the RICS Property Measurement Standards, so you can be confident internal areas are calculated on a common and consistent basis; critically, they are also objective and independent.
We provide 2D and 3D output including BIM, 360 virtual walkthroughs, site area measurement, boundary and topographical surveys, sections and elevations for refurbishment projects, elevations for rights of light negotiations, demise plans for leases, and Land Registry compliant title plans.
We have the technology and the skills to support you with everything from large scale, global portfolio instructions to small one-off instructions, all delivered with the same exacting precision and attention to detail.
We can give you virtual access to any building, at any time, anywhere, by providing an analytical, connected model that can be experienced on mobile devices, tablets, desktops, or even Virtual Reality headsets.
Walkthroughs can be hosted and shared, providing you with an immensely powerful tool for virtual site meetings or presentations, to discuss everything from marketing, leasing, space planning and design development, to development monitoring.
By using the very latest 3D laser scanning devices, we can provide virtual walkthroughs of any built environment within hours of leaving site.
The more you think about measured survey data, the more you’ll realise how often you need it, how much it’s part of everything you do, and perhaps most importantly, how vital it is to have information you can trust. More than ever, clients want confidence in the data being used.
Our RICS qualified team is equipped with the latest, cutting-edge data capture technology, combined with the surveying skills that come from years of experience. We guarantee referenced areas within a tolerance of 0.2%, a level of accuracy that meets the guidelines set out in the RICS Property Measurement Standard.
All our area reports are also provided with an assignable letter of reliance, which transfers a duty of care to future purchasers. This is backed up by our market leading Professional Indemnity Insurance providing unrivalled client confidence, to support transactions from the very outset.
In a world where Architects, Engineers and Construction professionals use sophisticated digital tools to plan, design, construct and manage buildings, we recognise the need to provide 3D BIM-ready Revit (AutoCAD) models.
Our team uses terrestrial 3D scanners and UAV drone technology to capture large datasets of the built environment. Once processed we can store this for you, effectively future-proofing all the information about your asset. Our output includes raw ‘point-cloud’ data for architects, as well as allowing extrapolation of detailed 2D floor plans, sections and elevations.
The Building Information Models provide digital description of every aspect of the built asset.
The Model makes it possible for anyone to access or add to the building component information thus improving asset reliability and performance.
Full 3D datasets promote greater efficiency, save money on design and planning costs, deliver reduced capital and operating expenditure, as well as providing asset registers and a basis for service mapping.
Working on behalf of owners and occupiers to manage or mitigate environmental risk, improve carbon footprint, certify buildings to various standards and enhance building sustainability and occupant wellbeing, we help clients understand their sustainability-related business opportunities and risks.
