There is a common misconception about surveying: that’s it’s all about buildings.
Yes, we’re qualified to look at buildings, diagnose faults, and create plans for their long-term health. But that’s the easy part.
Because buildings are built for people. They are owned, occupied, managed and maintained by people. Each of those people, quite rightly has a vested interest. And those interests are not always aligned.
Contractors need space and access. Owners want to maximise value and minimise costs. Tenants require peace, privacy and reliability. Property managers want to know what’s happening before it happens.
That understanding is the key to Earl Kendrick. Every day, we remind ourselves that our technical expertise, our practical experience and our qualifications are worth nothing if they are not backed-up with the highest quality of personal service.
That doesn’t happen by accident. It starts by recruiting well. Not just people with letters by their name, but people people, who enjoy what they do and who they are doing it with.
Working with our clients, writing to them, explaining things, acting as the go-between, and, sometimes, appeasing them!
Which is why we are unfazed by work of any size or complexity. If we put the stakeholders first, and continue to do so from that point on, then the building project will always succeed.
