Senior Building Surveyor Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Senior Building Surveyor?

Senior Building Surveyor in Griffith:
"Senior Building Surveyor - brilliant!"
Pros: Seeing a building project from start (assessment of the application) to finish (issuing an Occupation Certificate) and all the inspections along the way. I love that I spend some time in the office and some time outside the office every day. It is really satisfying to make sure that any project is carried out to the highest standard for the owner (not the builder); I always treat each project as if it is being built for me and take that personal interest which builds report with owners and builders alike. I enjoy having the opportunity to further my education in my chosen field and sharing that knowledge with builders and their contractors.
Cons: Builders who always want to take shortcuts. Repetitive paperwork in a so-called paperless society.
