Everything you need to know about Measured Building Surveys

A measured survey produces an accurate scaled drawing of a specific building. Detailed floor plans, elevations and sections are produced using a mixture of traditional techniques and the latest in technology.

Post-survey analysis of the data results in accurate scaled drawings being produced in either 2D or 3D depending upon the specific requirements.

One of the functions of a measured building survey is to give architects, building contractors and structural engineers the information they require to start to develop a scheme that requires alteration to the existing building.

Volumetric data can also be used as part of a planning application, with LPA’s requiring this information.

What is a floor Plan?

A floor plan is viewed on a horizontal plain (transverse) and shows all of the measurements on that particular floor or ceiling, or on a wider scale it would show all of the room dimensional information within a building.

What is a section?

A cross-section is viewed across a specific cut line depending upon the information that is required. This can be across any plane, however a typical section drawing of a building would show the levels of all of the floors and ceilings, along with any other structural or internal features of the property.

What is an elevation?

An elevation is a side on view of a building or structure, and this can be internal or external depending on a clients particular requirements. The view shows information that would include all vertical dimensions and the setting out of things like doors and windows along with other wall finishes.

Measured Building Survey – Specification and Standards

As with our topographic surveys, some of our clients have their own specification that they want to be used as the basis for the survey and in these instances, we are happy to take instruction on your requirements.

We work to a standard specification which is as recommended by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for measured surveys of land, buildings and utilities.

Common Questions

The cost is based upon the amount of time required to complete the survey and drawing. The more intricate or detailed the building is, the larger the cost. This would ordinarily range between £500 and £1500 per day.
This depends upon the size and detail of a property, however to complete a measured survey of a generic 3-bedroom semi-detached house would take 1 – 2 days.
That’s fine with us, just inform us of your requirement and we will provide you with a quotation. You don’t have to have the plans, elevations and sections all drawn up if you don’t want to, we can do as much or as little as you want.
Our surveyors are based all around the country, this allows us to deliver our services with short lead times, we also have a Rapid service if you need us to drop everything.
We produce our scaled drawings in a number of different formats, just let us know of your requirements. As standard you will be issued your drawings in both DWG and PDF formats.
