Measured Surveys

A measured building survey (typically a combination of floor plans, elevations and sections) allows the production of scaled drawings, giving an accurate representation of the structural and architectural features of a building.

Measurements carried out by the surveyor on site are processed in the office into floor plan drawings. These can be simple plans used for calculating areas to highly detailed plans showing heritage features or structural details.

Floor plans drawings can be supplemented with roof plans, elevation drawings of the building facades and cross-sectional drawings through the building to give a comprehensive picture of the structural make-up of a building.
