What is a Commercial Building Survey?

A commercial building survey is a report based on an expert surveyor’s inspection of the ‘bricks and mortar’ of any commercial building, with associated commentary on any legal and compliance issues which might be present. This type of survey is suitable for any age, construction, or size of building.
