Condition Surveys

Meticulously tailored for your project, our experienced surveying team are the trained eyes that interpret a site to give you a detailed and comprehensive overview of the M&E installation requirements.

With projects up to 2,500,000 square feet, each successfully delivered within exacting timeframes, David Low Consulting is well-versed in surveying even the most complex and large-scale installation, whilst balancing potential site issues, client requirements and the presentation of each aspect of the services, into a coherent and concise report.


David Low Consulting provides insightful, accurate reporting that assesses the condition of the M&E installation whilst servicing your site in a timely manner.

By enlisting an independent surveyor, we ensure that no unfair bias or recommendations affect your report. Each project is guaranteed to be delivered on time, within budget and by a reliable team of industry experts with deft procedural knowledge.

Technical Due Diligence

Our thorough approach and collaborative solutions capture any limitations and every opportunity a site has to offer so you can make the most informed decision possible.

Engaging in this service early in the development process allows for a rigorous investigation into a site’s physical condition, as well as its future feasibility. Our approach gives you the relevant advice you need to help select the right property based on your requirements.

M&E Design

Our team is experienced in creating unparalleled mechanical and electrical design solutions that meet your needs, timeframe, and budget - with minimal environmental impact.

We are dedicated to designing efficient and durable systems, and we diligently provide results that are tailored to each brief. Our project workflow successfully tackles any challenge a project may bring to both meet, and exceed, your requirements.
