We use the RICS guide to surveys of land and buildings as the starting point for any measured building survey. We then adjust the specification, depending on the client’s requirements and the general site conditions.
In addition to traditional methods of measuring buildings we also utilize the same equipment and methods used on topographical surveys to ensure the highest degree of accuracy.
Our standard measured building survey would comprise of floor plans, external elevations and a section through the building.
Standard details would include ; walls, doors, windows, stairs, beams, changes in floor level, pipes, ducts, kitchen ware, sanitary ware, incoming services, and all relevant heights.
Additional detail can be added, such as light switches and electrical sockets.
Or detail can be removed to produce basic layout plans.
Elevations are particularly important when surveying historic and listed buildings and we can provide very accurate, detailed elevations showing intricate features.
We understand the need to complete surveys quickly and efficiently so we ensure that we have the right number of surveyors on site to complete the survey as quickly as possible.
