What is a Measured Survey?

A measured survey is a comprehensive process used to capture detailed information about a building or site’s physical properties. It involves the precise measurement of spaces and elements to create accurate digital representations in various formats, such as point clouds, drawings and models. These measured surveys are essential for renovation, restoration, or expansion projects, ensuring all plans are based on current and exact data.

When is a Measurement Survey Required?

Measurement surveys are crucial when precise, detailed architectural information is needed—typically during the purchase, renovation, or expansion of a property. They are also indispensable in lease plans, record-keeping, and compliance with building regulations.

  • Property Purchases
    When buying a property, a measurement survey ensures you have accurate data about the building’s dimensions and structural features, helping to avoid potential issues and disputes.
  • Renovations
    Before altering or upgrading a property, measured survey companies provide the necessary details to plan changes accurately and ensure the integrity of the structure.
  • Property Expansions
    Expanding a building requires precise data to seamlessly integrate new structures with existing ones, which we provide.
  • Historical Record-Keeping
    Measured surveys help document the original details of historic buildings for preservation and future restoration efforts.
  • Lease Plans
    Creating detailed lease plans requires measured survey companies to define and document the leased space accurately, critical for legal and commercial documentation.
  • Compliance with Building Regulations
    Measurement surveys are used to ensure that new constructions or modifications are compliant with local building codes and regulations.
  • Facility Management
    Managers of large facilities use measurement surveys to organise, plan, and manage space and infrastructure efficiently, supporting operational requirements and maintenance.
  • Construction Documentation
    During construction, maintaining accurate records of the progress and changes requires ongoing measured surveys to align with the project’s specifications.
