Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted in 1979

The design refers to the various aspects of the surveyors. The twin windows set in the gable of a house and the green base represent residential property and land. The bezants signify the firm's functions as valuers and the ranging rods are the surveyor's constant companions. The key is that of a chamberlain - the manager of a household - and with the willow of the crest is neat reference to the partnership.

The motto means "here and everywhere".
