Our database of nearly 400 surveying contacts is separated into two spreadsheets, providing details of over 200 of the UK's building surveying practices and more than 180 UK quantity surveying practices.

There is inevitably some overlap of firms, but it should be noted that the individual contacts provided for each entry have not been duplicated. The names have been selected according to their primary role, e.g. in this list, all contacts have a managerial or directorial responsibility for building surveying functions. Note has also been made of the Building Top 50 Surveyors position, where appropriate.


Each entry includes a contact name, together with address, telephone number, website, email (93% being name-specific), and LinkedIn and X (Twitter) page addresses.

The databases are available to subscribers via the My Account page (you must be logged in), or to other customers from our Shop.

Marketing to Building Surveyors

In order to summarise the differing roles of the building and the quantity surveyor, the RICS states, “Building surveyors are involved in all aspects of property and construction, from supervising large mixed-use developments to planning domestic extensions. This varied workload can include everything from the conservation and restoration of historic buildings to contemporary new developments.”

In terms of the specification of products and services, building surveyors may have influence (or, in some cases, authority) in the selection. Needless to say, this will occur in significantly fewer cases than, perhaps, an architect, but nonetheless they represent an important group for suppliers. We are not aware of any recent research into the levels of the specification influence of the building surveyor when compared to other specifiers. Some insight into key influences affecting surveyors comes from the 2019 Construction Products Association report, entitled ‘Construction Products Information Survey’, which included both building and quantity surveyors in its fieldwork. It says, “……The surveyors who responded are particularly concerned about price, and contractors are more concerned about the delivery time/availability.”

Direct promotions, social media and trade shows aside, specific targeting of the sector by construction product and service providers is possible through focused media, such as the RICS publications Construction Journal, Built Environment Journal and Modus (the official magazine for RICS members). If you are logged on, you can download our database of over 330 UK construction industry journals, providing media details, such as circulation data, sales and editorial contacts (with email addresses), and readership profiles. In order to find those which include surveyors amongst their circulation, simply select the 'main readership' column and enter the term “surveyor” in the search box.

There are over 180 events detailed in our UK Construction Exhibition Calendar; however, the RICS Annual Building Surveying Conference is a dedicated and key event, generally held each spring and normally includes an exhibition area for suppliers to present their services/products. You can find the details here.
