    How do you become a building surveyor? What does it take and how do you get there?

    Firstly, you’ll need the right qualifications. If you want to become an assistant building surveyor then completing a TAFE course like a Diploma in Building Surveying or even a Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) is all it takes. But if you’re setting your heights higher and want to become a fully accredited professional, you’ll need to complete either a bachelor or postgraduate degree in building surveying.

    Once you’ve finished this, you can then register your licence with the relevant state authorities and bingo – you’re in business.

    But it takes a certain type of personality to become a building surveyor. You’ll need to have exceptional communication skills, a meticulous eye for detail, and of course have an appreciation for the processes of building and construction.

    As a building surveyor you’ll be in high demand by other building professionals like architects, engineers and town planners, as they seek your extensive knowledge and advice on things such as building legislation and regulations, technical codes and construction standards.

    There are few buildings that don’t require a building surveyor’s assessment, and you’ll be able to work on a range of structures from schools, hospitals, prisons and shopping centres to marinas, train stations and factories.

    As you can see, the scope for work is endless and you’ll constantly be challenged and engaged. Your career prospects are also high considering the different disciplines you can specialise in. These range from access for people with disabilities to energy efficiency and sustainable development, or other areas such as construction law and building material science.
