Construction and Private Residential Project Surveying

From concept and compliance through to completion - our experts manage all size projects


Whether you require full project surveying throughout the project lifecycle or employer's agent representation post-contract - our team of project surveyors will establish the best solution for your needs.

You can find out further information about our separate Contract Administration services here.

We work alongside developers, housing associations, and landlords on small developments to large schemes.

Project Surveying

We'll ensure the successful management of the planning, coordination, and execution of your project, whether it’s commercial, industrial, or residential.

Our team manages all components and communications at each of the following stages:

  1. Briefing
  2. Design 
  3. Tender 
  4. Construction

Employer's Agent

Appointing our RICS Regulated Project Surveyors as your Employer's Agent will ensure:

  • Your interests are represented throughout the building contract
  • budgets are set and monitored 
  • works are completed on time and to schedule
  • safety procedures are followed



Project surveying encompasses the techniques and skills involved in producing a defined outcome (an extension, a new build, refurbishment, etc...) within the constraints of people, time, budget, and resources.

Whether you're building a new home, redeveloping, or extending - opting for a project surveyor from Sillence Hurn will give you:

  1. peace of mind that your costs, quality, and timescales will be closely monitored
  2. more time to focus on other areas of your business or life
  3. compliance with the latest legislation from an RICS Regulated expert.

Our Approach

Our project surveyors will...

  • Understand common construction practices
  • Apply for any necessary approvals
  • Manage all tender and contracts
  • Ensure that the quality of the project meets agreed expectations
  • Check that the build meets legal requirements
  • Monitor and complete all necessary due diligence 

We also offer drone services at an additional cost. To discuss plans for your home or new build contact the team by completing the form below.


"Most building consultancies struggle with attention to detail and a commercial perspective. Since we started using Sillence Hurn, projects run more smoothly and the highly professional team mitigates costs and risks which well outweigh their fees. They are trustworthy, transparent, cost-effective, and extremely in tune with all aspects of buildings and construction. They have managed our projects in relation to pre-purchase, design, surveying, bank dealing, building control, tendering, and more."
