Hi, I’m Ashley Jones (MRICS – Chartered Building Surveyor) and I’m the owner of Downlands Architectural Design and Downlands Surveying.
Before I was qualified, I worked for a large firm of Chartered Surveyors in London. My projects were largely historic buildings such as Fishmongers’ Hall and the Livery Company’s other properties. I progressed further to work on the Royal Pavilion and Brighton Museum and other historic buildings within the Brighton & Hove City Estate.
I graduated, with a degree in Building Surveying, from Liverpool John Moores University in 1993. I later qualified as a member of the RICS in 1998.
If you’re not sure where to start with a building project, or you need some help, I understand how complex and time-consuming managing building projects can be. Let me help guide you through the process or deal with all or part of it on your behalf.
I have extensive experience in Building Design, Project Management and contract administration. I also work closely with the Local Authority Planning Officers across the region. All Planning Applications are submitted electronically, as are Building Regulation Applications, making the process quick and straightforward.
I am proud to be well respected for my knowledge of historical buildings and

"Very good service. Always prompt with surveys, drawings etc. A successful planning application was produced, applied for and subsequently approved in good time. Ashley's local knowledge of the planning process and requirements was integral to the production of a quality application that resulted in minimal queries."
