Being a Building Surveyor
A Building surveyor is very similar to a building inspector, as they help to enforce local building codes to ensure safety. A Building surveyor may first examine building plans to see if they comply with all rules, regulations and laws. They will likely inspect the building as work is completed and again when the building is complete.
 
 
 
Building surveyor jobs are generally found through municipalities, as they are generally in charge of enforcing building codes to ensure safety of the residents and workers in the community. However, many large constructions companies also have Building surveyor jobs in order to be sure that their workers follow all regulations and  avoid the potential for fines when building codes are ignored or accidentally misinterpreted by workers.
 
 
 
Building surveyors first approve building plans for those buildings which are planned in their community. They will likely approve or deny the plans based on key factors. For example, the height of a building within smaller municipalities can be determined by the height at which fire trucks can reach. There are in fact, many municipalities that do not allow structures over two stories, as they cannot ensure the safety of residents in those buildings.
 
 
 
The Building surveyors will also oversee construction as it happens, to see that the construction process is happening as it should and that construction workers are not skipping important steps in the building process. Finally the Building surveyor will do a thorough inspection after construction is complete to ensure that each and every building code has been met.
