What are the Benefits and Applications of Measured Building Surveys?

What is a Measured Building Survey?

A measured building survey uses the latest 3D laser scanning technology to capture accurate data from the internal and external areas of a building or a site. The survey is useful in redevelopment, renovation or extension purposes as well as planning new layouts or room sizes, and more. Using precise survey measurements of a specified building, Plymouth’s measured surveyors can represent a whole building on a digital format for a clear view of all structural its features. Our laser scanning device is highly accurate, capturing up to 1 million points per second. This will provide you with exact details of all points of windows, walls, beams, and many more, of a building.

Usually, a measured building survey usually is the beginning of a design process so that all inaccuracies are avoided during construction. Receive an extensive measured building survey data from a professional and trusted surveyor to ensure your project is started correctly, and proceeds without disruptions.

How is a Measured Building Survey Completed?

Our team surveyors and engineers accompanied by the latest laser scanning technology will visit the intended building or site. This will be followed by establishment of a survey time schedule, usually approximately 2 – 3 hours depending on the size and complexity of the project. Using 3D laser scanners, we will scan the entire area for detailed and accurate data. The detailed scans will be used to create point cloud, containing the recorded information to be imported to CAD & Revit software for the creation of plans and 3D models as required.

After completing a measured building survey, we will deliver accurate digital representation of the building and all structures in your preferred format and level of detail. Receive deliverables as either 3D point cloud, scaled as-built 2D drawings, or 3D BIM Models to kickstart your project.

What are the Benefits of a 3D Laser Scanning Measured Survey?

  • A 3D laser scanning measured survey produces extremely accurate data by capturing the exact information. This leaves no room for errors or omissions in the process.
  • Accurate data implies no risks in the construction process. As a result, there will be no need for revisiting the site for additional surveys, saving on time.
  • A 3D laser scanning survey reduces corrections as well as travelling expenses associated with site revisiting because of the highly accurate survey data from first visit.
  • The laser scanning technology fast-tracks the project design process, minimising variations and delays.
