What Are Measured Building Surveys?

A measured building survey is essential when modifying infrastructure, precisely scaling and the layout of both internal and external structures and features. A precise blueprint of your property ensures the effective planning of the project through to completion, saving both time and money.

Our Coventry surveyors conduct surveys with state of the art equipment, creating 2D and 3D depictions of your property’s condition, providing you with essential information to achieve top results. Our recent Coventry projects include retail stores, schools, housing, hospitals, churches and even heritage sites.

Fosse Surveying uses state of the art Leica tool stations, GNSS systems, handheld measuring equipment, and 3D laser scanners to provide efficient and accurate Coventry building surveys. Once the site has been processed via the use of our scanners, our AutoCAD software provides you with a 3D accurate, scaled depiction of your property, available for delivery in both DXF and DWG formats.

With years of industry knowledge and experience under our belts, the team at Fosse Surveying guarantees that your results will be precisely scaled in an efficient manner to ensure the timeliness of your project completion. The measured building surveys we prepare can contain plans illustrating both external and internal structures, such as floor plans, elevations, ceiling plans, and cross-section surveys.

Every Coventry project we undertake is conducted to the highest standards in conformation with the Royal Institute Of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

What Is Involved In A Measured Building Survey in Coventry?

Property Floor Plans 


We are confident in producing property floor plans for buildings of varying size, and we have the experience to do so! Our reports are tailor-made, encompassing the requirements and specifications needed for your project. Our surveys can include everything from the basic positioning of walls to intricate fittings, fixtures and components.

Our specialist software makes it easy to provide your project with both 2D and 3D plans, assisting you in efficient design completion.

Elevation Plans

Our specialist software enables the production of detailed elevation drawings for infrastructure of varying size. Our drawings are tailored to suit your requirements, encompassing detail from the very basics to full architectural features.

Street scene elevation drawings are often a planning requirement. Our surveyors can produce a comprehensive account without having to step foot on the premises.

Cross Section Drawings

Our surveyors will be more than happy to incorporate cross-sectional drawings within your measured building survey, should you need them. Simply provide us with the positioning of the cutlines, and we shall provide all of the relevant sectional information required.

The level of detail illustrated is dependent upon the needs of your project. Our cross sectional drawing can include essential information through to the inclusion of complex design elements such as cornices and architraves.

Reflected Ceiling Plans

A reflected ceiling plan (RCP) depicts ceiling detail in a similar fashion to a floor plan, without the need of climbing a ladder. The level of detail included within our ceiling reports are subject to the requirements of your project. When completed, our report shall be presented in the most appropriate format for your convenience.
