Building surveying requires a combination of technical, economic and managerial skills. The programme reflects this diversity through lectures, studio sessions, individual input and teamwork on projects, seminars, workshops and site visits. We focus on the post-construction life of buildings, and, in keeping with our multidisciplinary approach, students work on projects with students taking other programmes within the School, such as quantity surveying, design and construction management, estate management and architecture. A major feature of the programme is its international perspective.

The university is investing £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street is a short walk from the Greenwich Campus and this programme will be delivered there from 2014.
