Our Commercial Building Surveys are conducted by an experienced RICS Accredited Chartered Building Surveyor, who will comprehensively assess the external and internal condition of your property and feedback their findings in a detailed report.

When and why you need a Commercial Building Survey

Whether you’re looking to acquire a commercial premises or lease one, a Commercial Building Survey will inform you on the condition of the property, along with the presence of hazardous materials, such as non-fire-resistant cladding, RAAC, or asbestos, which can compromise your investment and present a risk to occupants.

Instructing a full Commercial Building Survey is an effective way to identify these defects and understand the cost of any remedial works, prior to exchange of contracts, allowing you to move forward with clarity and confidence.

Commercial Buildings Survey services we offer at GJS Dillon:

  • Technical Due Diligence Reports

Key features of our Commercial Buildings Surveys:

  • An in-depth breakdown of each area of inspection, complete with images of the property and professional observations from the building surveyor who attended.

What Our Clients Say...

Cox Mahon

We instructed GJS Dillon to prepare a reinstatement cost assessment for building insurance purposes. We were delighted with the quality of the report which was issued in a timely manner and the personable approach given to the instruction by Mike Sutton, their Director of Building Surveying.

Brocks Holdings Limited

We were very impressed with Mike’s commerciality and experience, always keeping his observations in the context of our requirements.

The report itself was clear and concise and concentrated on those significant issues which may affect our interest in the building post acquisition. All in all, very impressive from start to finish.
