Commercial Building

For The Howard De Walden Estate we produced a Fire Safety set of floor plans for this commercial building.

A & E Developments engaged Albion to oversee and monitor the construction of this new-build multi-million pound project.

With a waterfall and car turntable this project was special in many respects.

Albion were engaged to carry out an inspection of the new-build flats including the underground car park.

OUR APPROACH

Technology working with good design


BUILDING DESIGN

As members of the CIAT Chartered Practice scheme we are qualified to design and monitor new-build projects, refurbishments and conversions.

We are members of The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB).

We believe in preserving our history through buildings from the past as well as modern architecture being of its time and not pastiche. 


BUILDING INSPECTIONS

We inspect residential, commercial and industrial buildings. We are licensed surveyors for the RICS Home Surveys 2021 scheme.

DRONE SURVEYS: We offer an aerial drone service for rooftop aerial surveys and facade surveys (not EWS) of all types of buildings.

EWS: Due to insurance limitations we can only inspect buildings up to 11 metres high to the top storey and they should have no visible cladding certified as flammable.  

NB. WE ARE NOT REGISTERED VALUERS.

MONITORING CONSTRUCTION

We can provide a periodic monitoring service for construction projects. We also offer a Contract Administrator (CA) service for larger projects.

We require an industry-recognised contract to be in place and a builder member of a professional organisation such as FMB, Trust Mark or CIOB Chartered Builder scheme. 

MEASURED SURVEY

We can produce digital floor plans of any size and type of building for: redevelopment. fire-safety, facilities management or extension and conversion. We can provide laser-scanning for complex or historical buildings such as we did on a whole block in Oxford Street, London W1. 

BUILDING DEFECTS

If you have fallen out with your builder and have contractual problems we can assist. There must be an industry-recognised contract in place and a builder with suitable certification such as Trust Mark, FMB, etc. We cannot assist on cash-only projects or those without a recognised contract in place.

COMPUTER-AIDED-DRAFTING

We have been using CADD since the 1980s. We use Autocad DWG, the industry standard. 3D presentations and visualisations are available.
