With the pressing need for new housing across the country, we understand the importance of being able to rapidly finish new houses to allow for their occupation.

Our building surveyors and project managers work closely with landowners, social housing officers and developers to deliver the full range of services that a development requires.

  • Carter Jonas has experience working across:
  • Housing developments 
  • Social housing/social housing associations
  • Private self builds, renovations, HMOs (House multiple occupancy)
  • High rise residential 
  • Listed buildings (Including for conversion or redevelopment)

We have experience across both capital and investment funded projects for public and private sector clients. Our specialists have been responsible for multi-disciplinary teams, taking projects from their initial feasibility studies, through the detailed design and planning stage, to construction and handover of the completed units ready for occupation or sale.

Our consultants appreciate the pressures both the public and private sector are under to deliver much needed housing at the right price, which is why it is always key to have an experienced project manager lead and focus design teams.

Our approach to residential building consultancy and how we mitigate risk 

With regards to residential houses and schemes, our professionals understand the full cycle of delivery and what can go wrong.

We help our clients to evaluate who the right contractor could be for their project. Often, the cheapest quote might not always the best choice as poor workmanship and mistakes can cost.

Our professionals have significant experience in party wall surveying and what the impact could be if an agreement is not made. Also, we also ensure to make all related parties aware of the steps taken and any considerations decided.
Our professionals always consider site defects and what could go wrong with a property in five to ten years’ time. We work with all parties to make sure everyone is protected going forward.
