Measured building surveys

Precise measured building surveys using latest methods and technology

Using the latest laser scanning and digital equipment, our expert surveyors are knowledgeable and practised in surveying a wide range of building types including historic, commercial, retail and industrial buildings.

As well as providing 2D plans, sections and elevations, we also produce Revit building models to a pre-defined level of detail, which we will quote for. With our expertise, knowledge and skill, you can complete your project on time without additional costs.

Focus your efforts on creativity or management and feel comfortable knowing you can leave the technical data modelling to us and we’ll get it right the first time.

I would personally like to thank-you for your work and assistance in helping us secure this lottery funding. Your accurate measured survey and drawings have been essential in developing our schemes.”

A swift process to get your project completed on time

Measured building surveys

Working on a consultative and collaborative level with your team allows us to gather the data and information needed to perform our surveys quickly and accurately.

The first stage: defining the survey specification

Prior to going out on-site, we will agree on the measured building survey specification with you. This will include defining the survey deliverables such as 2D plans, sections and elevations. We can also deliver 3D models which can be BIM Level 2 compliant if required.

The second stage: undertaking the measured building survey

While on-site, our surveyors will use laser scanning equipment together with more traditional survey methods to capture the information you require.

The final stage: compiling the survey data

Following completion of the on-site survey, we will draw up the measured floor plans or as-built plans in AutoCAD or Revit, building these on an accurately surveyed building footprint, with areas measured and calculated in accordance with the RICS Code of Measuring Practice.

Measured building surveys

Our previous measured survey projects include the 10-hectare site Goodmayes Hospital. We performed interior and exterior 3D models and 2D plans of 10 buildings as well as exterior models of a further 20 buildings. We were on-site for 2 weeks with up to 5 surveyors at any one time. With 600 scans and a control network, we created the modelling within 8 weeks.

 

 

CADS took a very consultative approach to the project, fine-tuning the specification for the model to ensure we were able to swiftly integrate it into our design process once it was released and we have been delighted with the result.
