About us


Having been surveying buildings for over thirteen years within the UK General insurance sector we have been fortunate enough to be involved in thousands of successful projects relating to Fire, Flood, Theft, Impact damage, Earthquakes, Subsidence, Storm and Escape of Water. As you can imagine, being based on the south coast we have worked on various types and ages of property such as Cob, Flint, Bungaroosh, Solid Brick and more recent methods of construction such as timber and steel framed structures. Solent Surveying Services enjoy making a difference and thrive on challenges and attention to detail.


What drives Solent Surveying Services is being able to assist in enabling projects to take place and to resolve and help prevent disputes. We enjoy meeting people in general, people are like buildings.. they all have different personalities and constructions! We strive to create legacy and be good ancestors. Customer experience is paramount and a bespoke service is important to us.

Armed Forces Friendly

WE ARE ARMED FORCES FRIENDLY AND HAVE SIGNED THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT. The covenant sets out the relationship between the nation, the government and our Armed Forces. It recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to members of the Armed Forces and their families, and it establishes how they should expect to be treated. The Armed Forces community should not face disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services. Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most, such as the injured and the bereaved. The corporate covenant is a public pledge from businesses and other organisations who wish to demonstrate their support for the Armed Forces community. - We strive to support the employment of Service spouses and partners and offer a discount to members of the Armed Forces Community. - We also actively contribute towards charitable events. - We are happy to support the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), in order to establish a tailored employment pathway for Service Leavers.
