District Surveyor's office celebrates over 400 years of experience

    our staff
    Our team includes professionally qualified surveyors, building engineers, MEP engineers and fire engineers.

​​Following recent recruitment the total Building Control experience in the District Surveyors Office has topped 400 years! This is longer than the time since the great fire of 1666, the event which prompted the creation of the first District Surveyors. This experience is a key factor in the success of the office in winning work with key developers.

First Phase of Blake Tower apartments complete

​​The District Surveyors have just finished working on the first phase of luxury apartments at Blake Tower, 2 Fann Street.

The building is a Grade II listed former youth hostel building (YMCA), and has been converted to a 20 storey, 74 luxury apartment building by Redrow. Interiors were by Conran & Partners.

This has been a challenging project, with the listing making certain aspects of the conversion difficult and necessitating unusual design solutions to tackle aspects such as fire safety.

The first phase of apartments has been handed over and the District Surveyors are now assisting the contractors to complete the remaining units.

The directors of Redrow have been impressed by our proactive support, and are considering working with us on further schemes throughout London.

The District Surveyors are able to work outside the boundaries of the City using the LABC Partnering scheme. We are currently working on a number of projects in this way, including Principal Place in Hackney and Southbank Place in Lambeth. We also deal with numerous schemes with the City Surveyors Office.
