Measured Building Surveys
A measured building survey allows industry professionals, architects, designers and developers to prepare for a site’s renovation or construction. This survey outputs an accurate representation of any building, and details architectural and structural elements.
As a critical part of the pre-planning stage, measured building surveys help prove that an extension or development adheres completely with the local authority standards.
ASES implements only robotic total stations and 3D laser scanners, which enables data to be captured both accurately and quickly. This is a major benefit, especially for residential projects where spending less time on a site means that there is minimal disruption.
3D Laser scanning has revolutionized measured building surveys and has become our adopted standard, not only due to the ease at which we can create BIM-ready 3D models but as entire detail is collected automatically regardless of the level of chosen detail output, the point cloud remains stored in our database. This means that if any additional detail is required at a later stage, the data set is re-visited without the need to return to the site.
Reflectorless measurement and laser Scanning have the added advantage of increasing operative safety on site by enabling remote measurement to heights without direct access.
Our vast experience has led to us working on a variety of projects such as schools, hospitals, retail stores, and residential housing – no project is too big or too small.
Surveys can be related to the ordnance survey Grid by using GPS or Arbitrary Grid. Our deliverables can be exported to AutoCAD DW, PDF or point cloud format to suit your requirements.
Information included in Measured Building Surveys:
We can also customise the amount of detail needed for your project, or your budget. You can have access to:
- Floor Plans
- Standard details include floor and ceiling heights opening and head heights, positions of doors and windows.
- Optional details can include the locations of switches, power outlets, radiators and more.
- Roof Plans
- Detail can include rafters and joists.
- Standard detail will include building and opening outline and heights.
- 1:20, 1:10 scale Elevations will include detail usually reserved for heritage or conservation sites.
- Reflected Ceiling Plan
- Details can include cornices and skirting boards.
- 3D Laser Scanning
- A 3D rendered or BIM model can be produced.
- Point clouds can be issued as a visualisation tool and inspection tool.
- Gross Internal Areas (GIA)
- Net Internal Areas (NIA)
Measured Building Surveys are used by:
- Property Developers
- Town Planners
- Local Government
- Consulting Engineers
- Real estate agents
