What are as-built surveys?

The purpose of an as-built survey is to capture the building structure, architecture, and MEP for record purposes and verify against existing or proposed construction.

In BIM it is often a contractual requirement to confirm the as-existing condition of a building. This is to verify that it has been constructed in accordance with the brief, is constructed in adherence to the proposed design or to provide an accurate record of the as-completed building and services for facilities management and planned maintenance.

Undertake as-built surveys at any stage in your project

As-built surveys or ‘as-existing’ measured building surveys can be undertaken at any point in your project including:

  • initial design phase
  • pre-construction
  • during construction
  • post practical completion or
  • post occupancy

Avoid project delays with our swift process to get accurate as-built surveys

When on site, our surveyors use HD 3D laser scanners to capture site data swiftly and accurately so you can avoid project delays, extra costs and increased workload.

For each day our surveyors spend on-site capturing data, they are likely to spend 2-3 days back in the office registering the point cloud, undertaking a verification against either existing data or proposed drawings and 3D models, or preparing new information.

Alternatively, a new 3D Revit building model or 2D plans, sections and elevations showing the exact dimensions and layout of the completed building, can be prepared from the data.
