With decades of experiences, GBE continues to devote time and resources into Building Surveying Services. We continue to stay updated through research on the many aspects of this complex issue, including building construction, building laws, building pathology, defect development, arbitration and case laws.

Equip with experience and expertise, GBE is able to deploy suitable investigation methodology and testing, which ultimately results in a fitting solution.
As each client, be it the investor, stakeholder, or end user, has their own objective with their property, we would tailor our services to their needs. One major issue that GBE identifies is the confusion between Building Survey and Condition Survey.
GBE considers “Condition Survey” a snapshot on the current condition of the building, providing an appropriate level of comment and repair strategy with estimation.
GBE considers “Building Survey” a comprehensive review of the entire building, along with forecast and anticipation of potential issues. This is a professional examination of the whole building.
GBE is also experienced in construction stage inspection. GBE is frequently invited to attend and inspect some critical construction stage such as steel structure erection; curtain wall installation; external façade cladding installation; concrete to water–tightness structure or underground structure.
