From our base in Copthorne, Crawley, we offer you our expertise in matters such as measured surveys, space planning, dispute resolution, and fire insurance valuations. Assistance with these issues is available for local customers as well as clients in London and other areas of the South East.

Measured Surveys and Fire Insurance Valuations

Landrock Phillips surveys existing buildings or land using the latest digital measuring and produce CAD drawings for record purposes, or as a basis for proposed alteration works. Additionally, we provide valuations for domestic and commercial properties for fire insurance purposes and assessment, under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Planning and Building Regulation Applications

Most new construction works require building regulations approval, and a significant number of them also require planning permission. We work closely with various local authority departments to ease projects through this often difficult stage of the design process. Assisting in the preparation and submission of building regulation and planning applications is another service we provide. We do this by producing drawings
and providing design information to achieve building regulation approval. We liaise with the relevant officer dealing with your application to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that they are provided with all relevant information. We also advise and assist with other applications, such as those for listed building consent, English Heritage approval, and Environment Agency licenses.

Space Planning

With office rents at a premium, every business must maximise their space in order to utilise it effectively. This may simply involve the redesign of their existing premises or the complete relocation to larger or more suitable premises. At Landrock Phillips, we have the capabilities to appraise your requirements and plan the space to suit your specific needs. We provide full CAD plans to show furnishing layouts and staff seating plans overlaid with IT infrastructure, electrical services, air conditioning, and other services. We work closely with a number of specialist furniture providers, enabling us to give you detailed cost information for building alterations, services alterations, and furniture supply. This allows you to make clear and informed decisions.

Dispute Resolution and Expert Witness Services

As a charted surveying practice, which is regulated by the RICS, Landrock Phillips is able to provide professional support to your legal advisors should any construction disputes arise. Expert advice can be provided in key legal situations, such as adjudications and arbitration, with the information available in a format immediately acceptable to your legal advisors. Landrock Phillips can prepare expert witness reports, joint statements, Scott Schedules, and contract claim documents. We also offer advice on party wall disputes and other property matters.
