Property & Construction Consultants

We are a Building Surveying, Project Management and Development Consultancy practice providing property and construction expertise across the Residential, Commercial and Public Sectors.


Building Surveys

Buying or leasing a property is a major financial commitment for you or your company to take so it is vital that adequate due diligence is undertaken and assurance achieved prior to exchange of contracts. Such advice is often money well spent and at the very least it is peace of mind.



In theory, negotiating a dilapidations claim ought to be simple: inspect the damaged property; agree the cost of building repairs; then do the works or pay the landlord the cost. In practice, this is rarely the case.


Project Management

The key to this is preparation, but in an increasingly dynamic environment where there are conflicting pressures on cost, quality and time, clients need an experienced project manager who has a detailed knowledge and understanding of the development process.


Our Vision is Simple...

To provide high quality, cost effective advice which draws on our diverse property & construction skills, awareness and insight.

Julian managed the renovation of our barns for additional accommodation and the redevelopment of the other outbuildings into a new gym. His services were invaluable in keeping to the agreed budget and on top of the different trades required to complete the job. Julian approached each element of the job with an eye to detail ensuring that what we designed was delivered. This project was delivered during the pandemic with considerable material price inflationary pressures so we were very pleased that it was delivered on time and on budget.

We engaged Record Associates to help manage a £600k refurbishment of factory and office space - from tendering and contractor selection to completion. If I had a similar project I would use Julian again.

I had a dispute with a builder regarding the construction of a new build garage (see before and after photos). There were aesthetic and technical issues. Julian Record’s expertise and reporting helped to resolve the issue and the builder rebuilt the external leaf.Highly recommended.

I have been delighted with the surveys that Record Associates have carried out for me on properties over the the years. The attention to detail that has gone into the work has been outstanding and has provided real clarity as to what is required to repair or remove. The service was quick and efficient and the highly detailed reports we received, allowed us to make informed decisions about property purchases.

We commissioned a survey after a really useful discussion. Impressed with the clarity, detail and sensible suggestions re works and remedies. Approachable and responsive throughout. Highly recommended. Drone shots a bonus! Reached inaccessible detail.

Thank you for the Schedule of Condition you produced which was extremely comprehensive, well laid out and flagged more issues than we were aware.It will certainly protect us from having to address these issues ourselves at lease termination!We were particularly pleased with your advice on the fit out of the space and how the layout should be changed to suit the growing needs of our business, provide better space utilisation, ventilation and natural light.
