Building Refurbishment

Elevation Surveyors have a broad range of experience in building refurbishment projects.

Our approach is to build an efficient working relationship with the client at inception, assisting in developing a detailed working brief, identifying the client’s ultimate goals, and planning the various stages to achieve them within the necessary time scales and budget.

We can prepare specifications, developed from the client’s requirements, and give guidance on the most suitable contractual arrangements, subsequently preparing the necessary documentation. We can then take the project through the tending process, reporting the subsequent returns, advising on which would offer the best value.

We will progress the project to site, acting in a contract administration or project management role, providing interim valuations, variation orders as necessary, and ensuring the works are executed in accordance with the requirements of the contract documents.


We were initially instructed to carry out a building survey on this Grade I listed building in East Sussex. The client retained us to specify and project manage the complete internal refurbishment and external repairs and redecoration, restoring the property to a exceptional standard. Close liaison with English Heritage on the proposals was required. The project required careful monitoring, and ran for just under ten months.

The client bought this property, located in central London, in a fire damaged state. Complete stripping back was required along with significant structural alterations to the basement area. The final fit out was completed to a very high standard, reflecting the location and character of the building as a whole.

We undertook specification and project monitoring for this Charitable Healthcare society. The original building was refurbished from an almost dilapidated condition to premium office space split over four floors. The work included restoration of the external fabric, which had particular requirements, as scaffolding was necessary over a busy London thoroughfare.
