WHY YOU NEED A MEASURED SURVEY FOR YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
Measured Survey for your Building Project
What is a measured survey?
A measured survey is the process of taking accurate measurements in order to produce detailed CAD drawings such as floor plans, elevations and section drawings. The data and drawings from a measured survey form the basis of any design process. These surveys are specified to a certain level of detail, with acceptable tolerances for scale, accuracy, delivery times, and costs. Our measured surveys can vary in detail depending on a client’s requirements and specifications; with a basic survey entailing elements such as doors, windows, walls, and level changes. A more detailed survey showcases plumbing, electrical layouts, and more precise information.
When do you need a measured survey?
- Sale, acquisition, leasing or registration of land or property.
- Establishment of tax requirements, or valuing a property.
- In the management of a facility or laying out services
- Health and safety planning, for instance, in the production of a fire plan layout.
