Beckton is an area within the London Borough of Newham and is split between East Beckton, Mid Beckton, North Beckton, West Beckton, South Beckton and Cyprus. The name Cyprus was chosen because at the time the original estate was being built in 1878, the British captured Cyprus from the Ottoman Empire. At the end of the Second World War a large number of prefabricated houses were built in Beckton. They were primarily built for those who were unfortunately made homeless by the war and were named after famous generals and war hero's. However, after major re-development during the 1980's they slowly disappeared making way for newer more modern housing.
Beckton Gasworks opened in 1870 and was named after Simon Adam Beck who was the governor of the works during that time. It was the biggest gasworks in Europe offering employment and accommodation for workers and their families whilst incorporating a vast jetty for unloading coal. The Gasworks closed in 1969 and remained empty for a number of years. However, in 1987 it was used as a film location for the Hollywood 1987 war epic Full Metal Jacket.

Our Residential Building Surveys are tailor made to suit your requirements. When you book your survey we will ask you to grade your building survey knowledge from 1 - 4, with 1 being 'next to no building survey knowledge' and 4 being 'excellent building survey knowledge'. From this we can tailor make your building survey. Depending upon your knowledge level we will add additional photographs to the building survey or will give you more definitions of building terminology, or add extra sketches to help describe particular areas of concern or to show you for example what type of roof your proposed property has or what type of brickwork the property is built in. By doing this we can make sure that you completely understand the property you are buying and that you understand what the issues are.
Our Commercial Building Surveys are also tailored to suit your property requirements. When you book your survey we will ask you to grade your commercial property knowledge from 1 - 4, with 1 being 'next to no commercial property knowledge' and 4 being 'excellent commercial property knowledge'.
