A measured building survey, otherwise known as a building survey, is a piece of fundamental documentation needed when making modifications to infrastructure or property. Fosse Surveying has a wealth of survey experience enabling your property’s structure to be precisely scaled and mapped out. A current and exact blueprint facilitates the efficient and cost-effective planning of a project through to successful completion.
Our top of the line equipment, conducted by our expert surveyors, creates high-quality 2d and 3d scans which enable us to provide you with essential information for achieving the best results. We have undertaken a series of projects within Cambridge including retail stores, schools, housing, hospitals, churches and even heritage sites.
Fosse Surveying uses the latest Leica tool stations, GNSS systems, handheld measuring equipment, and 3D laser scanners to conduct all of our Cambridge building surveys. Once the scanning of the site has been completed, we can then accurately illustrate your survey via our AutoCAD software, producing drawings in both DXF and DWG formats.
Our extensive knowledge guarantees efficient, precise and appropriately scaled results allowing your project to keep within your given time frame. We are proficient in providing a multitude of internal and external building survey plans including, but not limited to, floor plans, elevations, ceiling plans, and cross-section surveys.
Our Cambridge projects are conducted to the highest standards in accordance with the royal institute of chartered surveyors (RICS).
Our experienced surveyors have conducted diverse property floor plans of varying sizes. Our bespoke reports are custom-made to suit the requirements of your project depicting details from basic wall layouts to intricate fittings, fixtures and electrical components. Both 2d and 3d floor plans can easily be produced, assisting you in efficiently completing your design.
We employ high-tech equipment to produce detailed elevation drawings for infrastructure of all sizes. Our illustrations can incorporate an array of detail from the very basics to full architectural features, whatever your preference or requirement. Elevation drawings depicting the street scene of a property are often a planning requirement. Fosse Surveying can create a comprehensive report without the need of entering the building.
Any measured building survey can incorporate cross-sectional drawings. By providing us with the desired positioning of the cutlines, all of the relevant sectional information can be presented, ensuring that our drawings meet your design requirements. The level of detail depicted is determined by you and your project needs, from the essential details through to the addition of complex detail such as cornices and architraves.
Similarly to the layout of a floor plan, a reflected ceiling plan (RCP) depicts the detail of the ceilings, without the need for climbing up a ladder or any other more invasive methods. By working closely with you, we guarantee that the ceiling report is produced with all the details required. The finished product will then be presented to you in your preferred format.
Beams, columns and other internal structures
Internal and external wall thickness
Window cill and head heights
Electricity and gas meters
Drainage and rainwater pipes
Hazards on or near the site
In a similar orientation to a floor plan, an RCP creates a depiction of your ceiling. This enables your construction workers, designers and architects to visualise the intricacies of your project in an easier way.
If you are looking to change the appearance of your home, whether you’re wanting to extend or convert, a property survey can help you to achieve your vision more effectively. Home plans provide an authentic representation of your property, allowing for the careful planning of construction and help to avoid costly errors further down the line.
A building survey will illustrate the details and measurements of your property accurately. This enables the differences between the original plan and actual construction to be established, acting as a baseline for future construction.
A measured building survey usually requires 1-2 hours, but this differs from project to project depending on factors such as the size of the building and the level of detail required.
External and Internal building surveys consist of the scanning of infrastructure and the subsequent creation of a scaled representation of the building and its measurements.
The cost of a measured building survey depends on the required level of detail and the period of time spent at the site. For more information on an exact quote, please get in touch.
