Everything you need to know about Measured Building Survey in Manchester

Manchester Infrastructure

Massively growing in recent times, Manchester in North West England has become a city worthy of challenging London as the country’s most valuable location. According to current figures, there are fifteen towers in the City of Manchester that are 100 metres or higher in height, and a further 12 towers that are 100 metres or higher in height are in development.

The City of Manchester has more than 234,200 residential properties, and 95.5% of house sales between 2021 and 2022 were existing properties. From these statistics, 34.8% were terraced houses, 33.6% were semi-detached houses, 23.8% were flats and 7.8% were detached houses.

Property Development in the Manchester Area

Due to the predominantly urban nature of the city and the fact that a significant percentage of house sales involved old properties, it is fair to assume that the majority of developments across Manchester involve updating, enhancing or extending existing properties rather than building new infrastructure on patches of untouched greenfield land.

In an effort to avoid going outside of boundary lines and efficiently utilise available spaces, it would be advisable for developers staging planning projects to hold exact measurements of the property. Through taking this approach, the developer and their design team can retain assurances over the dimensions of the site and make plans that are reflective of the unique specifications of the building they are working on.

A proven way of retrieving fundamental internal and external measurements of a building to benefit a property development is by arranging for a measured building surveyor to carry out a measured building survey. Point cloud data taken from a measured building survey can then be collated into a scaled survey drawing of the site, giving the developer and their team a mapped-out image of the property.

Measured Building Assessments

A visit to a site for a measured building survey will entail the building surveyor making a set of notes regarding the internal and external measurements of the property. Assurances over the precision of the measurements from measured building surveys will span from the surveyor using the latest technology of highly specialised survey equipment, including laser scanning tools such as reflectorless total stations.

Dimensions taken during measured building surveys include property floor plans, ceiling plans and roof plans, elevations, fixed features, cross-sections and the internal layout. The building surveyor will note their findings from measured building surveys using paper and a pencil on a clipboard, as well as through the use of digital photographs. The client’s requirements will then dictate how the resulting measured survey drawings will be presented once converted from laser scanning data to a usable image.

The building’s floor plans and cross-section drawings from measured building surveys will often be displayed in a CAD format, either as 2D or 3D images. In circumstances where the building surveyor has notable observations from the assessment process, they may choose to provide the client with a measured building survey report alongside the completed floor plans and cross-section drawings to inform them of important factors regarding the building.
