November was a slightly more hairy month than usual for some of the Survey Solutions team as they participated in the Movember fund raising campaign.

We managed to exceed each target we set along the way and are so pleased to announce we raised a total of £2126. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to kindly sponsor and of course congratulations to all those that took part for not only raising money but building more awareness of men’s health issues.

Progress along the way was tracked with weekly photographs submitted and the final ‘tashes’ can be seen below.

Recently Survey Solutions have been undertaking some strategic planning to enable the business to move forward.

As part of this process a short questionnaire was emailed to our clients. We had an overwhelming response and many thanks to those that took the time and effort to complete the questionnaire.

The results have been very useful and they will help us with our ongoing proposals for the business.

The lucky winner of the £200 Love to Shop Vouchers is Paul from Peter Brett Associates. The vouchers are in the post and we hope you can buy something nice with them.

Survey Solutions are pleased to now offer floor surface level surveys to check compliance to BS 8204 within the National Structural Concrete Specification and National Building Specification.


Survey Solutions undertaking a BS 8204 Floor Surface Survey

The BS 8204 survey assesses the unevenness of concrete and screeded floors on new built properties below a temporary datum of a 2m straight edge as a +/- measurement. Tolerances are graded as SR1, SR2 or SR3 depending on the intended use of the floor. The survey can be included as part of an overall as-built survey or as a stand alone service with the results added to proposed layout plans. Typically the number of tests undertaken is calculated as the total square meterage of the floor area divided by 20 but can be tailored to any individual circumstance.

For more information about BS8204:Floor Surface Regularity Surveys visit Concrete Society or contact one of our team.
