“I really like the planning and flooding layers as this is an excellent source of easy to access information. These are two layers that makes Promap stand out as being the first place I would go to obtain this information. Trawling through the council websites is a pain to obtain this information, so this saves me a considerable amount of time.”

How to spend 3 hours in London
If you find yourself in London for 3 hours, and you time it right, you can take some photos of Westminster Abbey and Number 10, admire Big Ben, watch the changing of the guard, climb the lions in Trafalgar Square, and even squeeze in a sandwich.
But, what can you do in 3 hours as a surveyor based in London? Check local planning applications. No time for a sandwich.
Use different data layers to give you a clearer picture
I’ve been asked to find a site for a commercial real estate property in Berkshire. There are a couple of places I’ve had on my radar, so I went on Promap to take a closer look.
I checked out one place. And, by checking the local data category of Promap Premium Data Layers, I’ve found out it’s an area of core employment. That can go either way, but when I overlaid planning applications, I saw there were no planned developments.
Use data insights to grow your portfolio
I work in a beautiful part of the country. Because I live here, and my children live here, I’m always looking for a way to develop the area responsibility. Every community needs growth, but it’s important to work with people in a sustainable way.
Anyway, I’ve been running my own business for a few years now. It hasn’t always been easy, but I’ve had some really great projects and built a good reputation. So, now I really want to concentrate on growing my portfolio a bit.
There is so much data about London, it’s an architect’s dream
I’m new to London and only qualified as an architect in 2017, so I still need to make a good impression on my boss. All those late nights and coffees must have been paying off because last week he gave me a big opportunity to quote for a design on a central London property. I really need to impress him with an accurate and competitive quote.
Moving into the new decade, I am more aware than ever that the role of the architect is changing, and you’ve got to be a bit more tech-savvy than ever. You have to take advantage of all the improvements in land data to stay afloat, never mind get ahead, so I use Promap.
