Munday + Cramer’s team comprises experienced architectural surveyors. These experienced professionals carry out pre-planning work, condition surveys, 3D modelling work and much, much more. In the architectural world, surveying covers a broad range of disciplines; all of which are crucial in their own ways and for their own reasons. An architectural survey, in its simplest form, helps establish the measurements of a property. However, the remit of architectural surveyors extends far beyond simply this. Without the recommendations or guidance of a talented surveyor, most projects wouldn’t get off the ground. They are usually involved throughout a project in some capacity or another. From design through to construction, and then finally, management.

How Can We Support Young and Aspiring Architects Over the Next Year?

There haven’t exactly been many winners over the past year or so. The pandemic has thwarted plans at every turn – across every industry and not just architecture. Our attention has been turned towards the work undertaken by keyworkers, and unquestionably rightly so. The architecture industry has also played an important role, however. The adaptation of healthcare buildings has drastically minimised levels of contact. Similarly, the reshuffling of hospitality settings has meant that they might continue to operate, albeit at reduced capacity in many cases. Such concerted efforts, however, have meant that architects on the entry-level of the field have […]

When it comes to modern architectural styles, however, you’ll find that superlatives are still very much appropriate. Contemporary architectural design (from the turn of the 20th century to present day) includes some of the most innovative, most provocative and most daring structures ever to have been conceived. Some of the styles we’ll cover in this post built on the rules laid down by their forebears. Others, however, ripped up the rule book entirely. All of them, however, left their own distinct mark […]
