Built Asset Consultancy


We provide innovative, solution-based services to transform built assets into smart, optimised and sustainable spaces to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

Building Surveying

Maximising the efficiency and sustainability of built assets across the life cycle requires a multitude of skills. Our multidisciplinary team – made up of building surveyors, architectural and MEP designers, fire consultants and decarbonisation experts – has the expertise to develop, improve and enhance your estate strategy. By capturing asset data and understanding the insights that result from this data, we can support you in managing planned maintenance, asset life cycles, technical due diligence and statutory compliance to optimise expenditure and estate performance. We will work closely with you to understand problems and find solutions through to delivery and beyond, helping you to create higher performing and more sustainable buildings which meet today’s challenges and those of tomorrow.

Capture data to optimise efficiency

By using the latest digital platforms to capture asset performance data, we are able to make smarter, strategic decisions on planned maintenance, decarbonisation and regulatory compliance to support estate optimisation. Our team of specialists can advise you how to harness data to manage, improve and enhance your estate, assisting you to reduce overall estate costs, maximise efficiencies and achieve your sustainability goals.

Make data-driven decisions to decarbonise

There is growing demand to identify and support the implementation of energy improvement measures and decarbonisation solutions, regardless of the size of the portfolio or individual assets. Using bespoke digital tools, sustainable benchmarking techniques and strategic digital dashboards, we can help you understand the energy performance of your assets. To meet regulatory compliance and attain net zero targets, work with our experts to develop, manage and measure a bespoke decarbonisation roadmap to support your energy efficiency goals.

Gain the benefits of turnkey project delivery

An end-to-end solution from a single provider can create the perfect environment to achieve project success. RLB offers this capability through our ‘one stop’ turnkey delivery model. We can guide you through all the RIBA work stages, converting a brief into your vision. Besides highly experienced building surveyors, our team incorporates architectural and MEP designers who specialise in refurbishments, fit-outs and PPM life cycle replacement schemes. All our services can be tailored to support the outputs of your estate strategy or masterplan.

Meet fire safety requirements

Fire safety legislation emphasises the important role well-managed and maintained systems play throughout the life cycle of a building. RLB’s solution-based approach embodies this philosophy. We provide advice from design to operation and throughout the ever-changing occupancy of a building. We can deliver the fire advisory solutions you need to meet legislative requirements while considering the functional requirements of your business. Our focus is on making your estates safer and simpler to manage in the long term.

Protect interests, minimise liabilities

It is clearly important to understand your commercial risks and legal obligations when developing, acquiring, disposing or leasing property. Our building surveyors, who are experts in property law, legislation and construction technology, provide technical and due diligence advice that is both comprehensive and independent. We will share our knowledge with you to enable you to protect your interests and minimise your commercial liabilities.

Manage assets in line with PFI contracts

Our independence allows us to provide unbiased PFI advice to funders, operators, owners and occupiers, across both the public and private sectors. With our expertise in assessing the effective life cycle of assets, we can advise you how to ensure that contractual obligations are met, and the asset is returned with minimal liabilities and able to be used for commercial purposes in the future.
