Kingston University London

Course Introduction

You will gain knowledge of building materials, construction technology and pathology; specialist legal and regulatory issues; the design of simple structures; and the preparation of schemes for the rehabilitation of buildings. The course focuses on the core competencies of the building surveyor and professional builder operating at local, regional and national levels. It takes into account the developing sustainability agenda with which construction professionals must increasingly engage, together with multidisciplinary requirements specific to building surveying. While centred around the discipline requirements necessary for the UK'based building surveying professional, the course also contains European and global perspectives appropriate to the requirements of international consultancies.
