Stephen McIntyre joins us as Senior Measured Building Surveyor.  With over 10 years of experience, Steve brings with him a wealth of measured building and land surveying knowledge and skills.  Skilled in the use of both traditional and technologically innovative surveying solutions, he will further develop our advances on the use of the latest technology in these fields.

Julie Bradley joins us as Executive and Sales Assistant.  Bringing with her a wealth of administrative experience, she will support the team on a day to day basis and co-ordinate our new business activities.

We are still on the lookout for motivated professionals looking to develop and advance their skills in the fields of Measured Building and Land Surveying, Architectural Technology and Building Surveying. Drop us an email and your CV to recruit@hlpltd.net

Three years ago we invested in specialist equipment to enable us to provide laser scanning solutions to new and existing clients. Using state of the art technology we were able to provide clients with highly accurate survey data to enable them to make commercial decisions and reveal more details on heritage buildings. It’s been a major growth area for our business.

Roll on three years and continuing developments in technology are meaning our business is evolving. Further investment in new laser scanning products and staff development means the technology no longer requires a specialist with many years of experience to deliver the survey for many of our client requirements. All of our Architectural Technologists and Project Managers are able to use the technology and capture the necessary data on site in a very short time.

For us it means being more reactive and efficient and give clients greater personal accountability. The same person is able to carry out the survey and produce drawings, ensuring all the necessary information is captured and providing a seamless service to our clients. The added benefit is that the equipment is much smaller, which means we are no longer struggling on packed commuter trains with a huge red box.

There is of course still a need for experienced surveyors to be working on some of our more specialist projects. Heritage buildings are complicated and unpredictable and where a high level of expertise is needed, that is available.

Drone technology has also moved on significantly. Working with our partners at Flyover Filming, we are amazed at the speed of development in this field. Drones are now equipped with thermal imaging, enabling us to not only carry out visual roof inspections, but at the same time of attendance we are able to identify defects within structures that are not evident to the naked eye and would require quite specialist equipment in attendance at the same time.

Our drone pilots also possess the very specialist OSC license which means they can fly closer to buildings than other lesser licensed pilots. Our chartered building surveyors attend at the time of flight and their expertise means we can understand client problems, carrying out further or more detailed investigations, therefore delivering the client a more comprehensive understanding of their condition or problems, whilst live on site.  Not only does this save time and expense on access plant, but also the cost of further specialist investigations.

As a business we continue to maximise developments in technology to give our clients a seamless and comprehensive service to ensure their property needs are taken care of.
