The Emergence of Emerald Ritter

So what's in a name and why the name "Emerald Ritter", in basic terms our company stands for Green Knight.

"Emerald" a light green Gemstone and

"Ritter" is the German word for Knight.

The Green Knight is a character of the 14th-century. It is believed the Knight's true name is "Bertilak de Hautdesert" who is considered to be one of King Arthur's greatest champions. "King Arthur and King Cornwall" portrays Bertilak de Hautdesert as an exorcist and one of the most powerful knights of Arthur's court.

Whilst we cannot claim to have powers over battling demons or driving spirts away, and we are not the most powerful surveying practices in the world, we do have knowledge and experience in Building Surveying matters, including identifying damage in buildings, investigating and battling defects.
