Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Building Surveying
Environmental awareness, sustainability issues, economic restraint and building legislation dictate that increasing emphasis be placed on the effective utilisation of proposed and existing buildings. In particular, property owners, developers and purchasers are encouraged to assess more closely the life cycle performance of proposed and existing buildings and the possible reuse of existing buildings as an alternative to demolition and rebuilding. In such a climate, there is a growing demand for building surveying expertise.
Career opportunities for professional building surveyors exist in the private and public sectors and, in particular, in all areas of employment associated with the development and use of buildings.
