Traditionally a Surveyor would have to draw a site plan, a roof plan and probably a sketch of each elevation because before digital cameras there was no other way for them to record what they saw. Now I can record all this information with the click of a button, but this does not mean there is no longer any need for hand drawn sketches.
Most professional will of course argue that there is no way a computer can do their job to the same standard but the reality is that in many cases they can. Some experts are predicting that we could see a reduction in the number of bankers by up to 20% in just the next few years. There is already a “chat bot” providing immigration advice. Accountants could be next, so what about surveyors?
