What is a measured building survey?

A measured building survey is a drawn description of the floor layout indication of the positions, locations, and dimensions (measurements) of walls, doors, windows, and other meaningful building-related items of interest. It is a highly accurate and informative model of a building featuring floor plans, sections, and elevations.

Measurements for the survey are captured using a wide variety of techniques and tools. Our method involves a combination of fast and accurate terrestrial laser scanners, digital photography, GPS satellites, and sometimes a good old reliable tape measure.

Whether you are looking to update existing plans, or create a brand new set of ‘as-built’ drawings, our team of professional surveyors has the experience and the know-how to deliver fast, reliable results.
