Our free City Briefing events give you the chance to learn about how the work of different teams within the City of London Corporation contributes to improving the built environment of the Square Mile. This month we will be hearing from the District Surveyor’s Office, along with a panel of industry experts, for an evening of debate and discussion around how the City is continually evolving to meet the needs of the growing community and an increasing number of visitors.

Mark Pundsack, Assistant District Surveyor, will discuss how the Corporation have responded to changing Building Regulations and Fire Safety protocol in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy last summer. Responsible for construction within the Square Mile, as well as restoration and conservation projects, the District Surveyors have worked on a number of key developments including The Leadenhall Building, The Gherkin and 20 Fenchurch Street.
