Andrew Perkins - Senior Building Control Surveyor
I work for Bradford Metropolitan District Council Local Authority in their building control department.
To become a building control surveyor in England and Wales you will need either a BTEC HNC/HND or a degree in building control. It is important to study an accredited degree which would meet the requirements of a professional body, either The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) or the Association of Building Engineers (ABE).
Entry requirements degree courses are usually 3 A-levels or equivalent, including four Highers including maths and English and at least two standard grades/national 5 level (Scotland) and the WJEC or Welsh Baccalaureate (Wales).
As a building control surveyor, you can also become chartered. Becoming chartered means you have proved that you are highly experienced and skilled at doing your job. It is comparable to a bachelor’s degree and is recognised all over the world.
You can achieve chartership through the relevant professional institution for the career you are following. For building control surveyors, this is the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Salaries depend on location, employer and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options also improve with chartered status.
