Surveyors provide support and guidance to construction projects, big and small.
They often use technologies such as GPS and satellite imagery to help them with their work. There are many different specialisms within surveying including geospatial and hydrographic surveyors, land surveyors, building surveyors and quantity surveyors. All these roles require people to take accurate measurements and to be able to analyse and report on these. They may also be required to carry out financial calculations. They usually spend time at various outdoor locations as well as in an office.
Senior managers are responsible for leading teams of people working on all kinds of construction projects. As the boss, he or she comes up with strategies for getting jobs done efficiently, then makes sure people follow them.
3D visualisers bring the architect’s ideas to life, taking plans, architectural illustrations and other reference materials and using these to produce photo-realistic 3D images or animations of proposed buildings and developments.
