A measured building survey is an exact demonstration of a building. It shows the structural and architectural features of the building under survey. It also contains floor plans, which are very essential to provide the correct representation of the building. Floor plans are also backed up with elevations and cross sections and are presented as scaled survey drawings. The building survey team visits the site, captures all the data and then processes it using the building surveying equipment.
It does not matter if your survey project is either too large or small, it may be a single independent house with a plan of a few square metres or sometimes may also come up with thousands of square metres, measured building surveys are well equipped to deal with numerous house plans or a schedule of building plan. There are several service providers, which deal with handling the technicalities of floor plans, drawings, sections, and topographical surveys. The services can cater to apartment blocks and housing associations, flats, religious buildings, hospitals, Trusts, supermarkets, store chains on the high streets, schools, Universities and Colleges, and shopping malls. The service provider can provide overall arrangement plans, complete detailed surveys for windows, doors, sanitary ware, light and socket fittings, complicated architectural minute details, levels etc. Even, the surveys can be conveyed as 2D elevations furthered b floor plans and different sections.
Even the 3D laser scanning division can be used to generate more extensive formats like 3D model and more Revit outcomes. The usage of laser scanner and high precision techniques are useful in capturing the relevant data and providing high expertise drafting methodologies required delivering the most complicated and challenging survey projects. The accuracy of the technology used proves to be the most useful tool in the complete process.
Fast computer aided designing drawings with different levels of detailing starting from simple walls, doors and window surveys. The complete detailed data set including the 3D information for head heights, stair riser door heights, heights of ceiling, heights of spot, beam details can derived through the building surveys.
The importance of Building Survey
As a process of the measured surveys, the surveyors can highlight other important information such as an electrical and data points, sterile fittings plant, firefighting and other detection equipment, equipment of security and signage, and ceiling plans. The building surveys cover a significant portion of the planning that is extremely useful and accurate. The level of accuracy, comprehensive detailing, and quality of the data collected during the building surveys directly depends on the processing software being used, the expertise or skill of the operator working on it, and the surface that is being measured.
The accurate measurements captured helps in developing the site plans, which in particular is the backbone of any project. Balancing the costs, making the most economical decisions, analyzing the space requirements and gaining the initial insights of a building are some of the leading benefits of this model. It helps in doing away with any anomalies and avoiding any site concerns that may arise in the due course of time.
