Building Surveying

Building Surveys and Due Diligence

With varied requirements ranging from assessing the condition of a building for acquisition to establishing ongoing maintenance requirements or relinquishing a lease, no two building surveys will ever be the same. Our aim is to meet the individual needs of our clients, and, where necessary, we will work with a team of experienced specialists to enhance our own expertise and to deliver a tailor-made solution.


With experience of acting for both landlords and tenants, MCMS can assist with all aspects of dilapidations matters. From providing initial strategic advice through to the negotiation of a settlement, MCMS can act on behalf of its clients or as part of a wider, client appointed, team. In the event of formal legal proceedings, MCMS can provide both written and oral expert witness evidence.

Project Management

In an increasingly complex construction market, effective project management is a key ingredient to the successful outcome of any project. MCMS can provide a dynamic, professional project management service to meet the needs of our clients. We will ensure full delivery of the client’s brief, and can tailor our project management services to suit the needs of our clients. We can assist in everything from the selection of a suitable location, advising on the most appropriate procurement route, selection and appointment of the design team, selection and appointment of contractors, contractual advice, cost control and overseeing the works on site. Our team has experience of delivering projects on time and on budget for a number of FTSE 100 clients. This experience covers a range of building types, including commercial office space, retail, industrial and educational buildings. MCMS can also carry out project monitoring on behalf of those funding the project, and post contract audit work.
