Our people have been performing measured building surveys for years, and understand that in addition to fast, accurate delivery of outputs, their activities on your project site are part of the service experience.
That’s why we leverage cutting edge technology to provide you with the best service possible, which translates into the following benefits to your project:
- You will typically need to accommodate only a single measured building surveyor on your site
- Surveys are completed in a short span of time
- Our survey techniques minimise disruption to any activity you are conducting on site
- Follow-up site visits by our surveyor are rarely necessary
- Surveyors can measure hazardous sites with a lower degree of risk than when using traditional techniques
- Our surveyor has more time and opportunity to take an interest in your project and to answer any questions you may have
Our client base for measured building surveys includes construction contractors, property developers, local authorities in London and the Southeast, architects, and home-owners/residents.
Accurate as-built representations of buildings are necessary for a wide-range of purposes and projects. Typical examples include:
- Registration of building sales or acquisitions
- Property development or redevelopment
- Restoration of heritage buildings
- Property refurbishment, alterations, or structural work
- Health and safety-related projects
- Property taxation and valuation
- Legal and licensing purposes
Measured building survey requirements vary depending on the purpose or project type. Your Surveyor will take time to understand and discuss your needs before commencing with the site survey.
Along with the extremely accurate 3D laser scanning equipment we use, these preliminary discussions prevent misunderstandings and help avoid the need for us to revisit your site.
Even some of the largest and more complex sites can be completed in just one day. Quality survey data in reduced field time means repeated site visits are a thing of the past and ensures the least disruption to you, The Client.
Processing of data commences without delay following completion on site and your Surveyor will see your project through to completion. Then, when your drawings have passed our strict quality control measures they will be delivered to you within the agreed timescale.
Errors and omissions don’t feature in a measured building survey from Geo Scan. Regardless of the survey purpose, every detail of your building will be captured by our highly accurate 3D scanning apparatus.
Our Measured building survey deliverables are tailored precisely in two or three dimensions to suit your purposes and can include a comprehensive range of detail features and measurements, which includes as standard:
- Load-bearing and partition walls
- Doors, windows and other openings
- Lift shafts and stairways
- Sanitary fittings
- Stair details including risers and treads
- Spot levels and heights
Land and topographic visualisations are no longer limited to two dimensions, thanks to laser and digital technology. Geo Scan land and topographic surveyors use 3D laser scanning techniques to capture physical contours, gradients, elevations, and other land features/conditions in millimetre-accurate detail.
The more complex is your project site, the more insight you need into its form and features. We can help ensure your topographic images or models serve as a reliable foundation on which to plan your construction or development.
Whether you just need a basic land survey or a fully integrated three-dimensional representation of your site for BIM purposes, your Geo Scan topographic surveyor will be pleased to assist. Typical additions to a topographic survey include boundaries, GPS level datum, and ordinance survey coordinates.
Aside from the quality benefits of using 3D laser scanning for your land or topographic survey, our services offer a number of other advantages to help protect your project timeline and budget.
For example, our methods reduce the time and labour needed to complete your survey and generate your deliverables, so we’re able to stay cost-efficient and hence, affordable.
Deliverables are turned around quickly and without error, and we stake our reputation on the highest standards of client-care.
Our service model is based on a combination of smart technology, professional excellence, and above all, an authentic desire to create an outstanding experience for our clients. The only way we can fulfill that desire is to maintain control of every step in the process, all the way from “scan” to “plan.”
When you contact us with a question about your drawing, plan, visualisation, or model, we want to have the answer. We don’t want to contact someone else first to ask the question on your behalf.
We also want to be responsible for the results of every land or measured building survey we conduct, so we don’t like to take risks with the site-data we capture. Fewer handovers mean fewer opportunities for issues and errors.
Whatever the nature of your project, our in-house design and drafting service is tailored to your exact requirements. You can choose from a wide range of deliverables which includes:
2D/3D AutoCAD .dwg outputs from topographic surveys
2D Floor Plans, Sections and Elevations
Digital terrain models
- 360 degree panoramic images
