Chartered Building Surveyor

DESIGN

As Chartered Building Surveyors, G J Taylor Consultancy is well placed to undertake project design, or just assist you in the design process, helping you develop your project from your initial ideas through to a fully functioning solution.

Good design must incorporate good detailing, appropriate use and combination of materials with a specification to meet your needs. Whether it is a housing, office or other building, we can help you consider the options, balance your budget using best value reviews.
