Senior Lecturer Building Surveying
Emma Love teaches on the Building Surveying course as well as a variety of other modules within the faculty. These include modules within the undergraduate programs and the HNC Construction course. Emma is also the course leader for both levels of the undergraduate and postgraduate Building Surveying degree.
Emma has a long association with Birmingham City University having taken both her own HNC Construction and Building Surveying degree here. She also has links with other faculties at BCU through past studies, previous student projects and current projects. Emma returned to BCU as a full-time lecturer in 2014. Emma has been fortunate to have had a tremendous and varied portfolio career which has included running her own interior design consultancy, working as a building surveyor in both local authority and a large global practice all whilst teaching either part time or full-time. Her teaching career now extends to over twenty years of practice in a variety of different settings.
Away from the University Emma is an established photographer with a particular interest in architecture, the built environment and urban culture. She is part way through a PhD by publication, which considers the impact which graffiti has upon the built environment, how colour can impact our lives and how important cultural preservation is to communities.
