Do I need my architects to be present for the flood survey?2017-11-12T16:12:46+00:00

This is not essential, but if you require major work and alterations to the building, we will need to liaise with your architect. In the first instance, they are not usually required at the flood survey, but if they would like to be present then we would be happy to meet with them. Alternatively, we can meet with them at another time.
