A measured building survey, commonly referred to as a building or measured survey, is a to-scale representation of both the structure and layout of your property. It is a crucial document when making modifications to the infrastructure. The team at Fosse Surveying have an impressive knowledge and wide-ranging experience of executing surveys of this type to buildings of all size, ensuring that every detail is accounted for and drawn precisely. An architectural plan of your infrastructure informs the outline of your project timeline, ensuring work is efficiently and cost-effectively managed throughout.
Our first-in-class technology, operated by industry-leading experts, provides 2D and 3D scans of your infrastructure. These help to convey the most crucial information needed to complete the job in an effective manner and to achieve excellent results.
We have undertaken measured building surveys for a vast amount of infrastructures within Peterborough, including retail stores, schools, housing, hospitals, churches and even heritage sites.
Fosse Surveying’s Peterborough building surveys are executed adhering to best practices through the use of our latest Leica tool stations, GNSS systems, handheld measuring equipment, and 3D laser scanners. Once we have collated the required data from your site, our AutoCAD equipment will provide your project with a precisely scaled survey, available for access in both DXF and DWG formats.
We always produce reliable and precisely scaled results for our clients, enabling you to remain on track throughout your project. Our extensive knowledge and experience supports our competency in providing a number of internal and external building survey plans, including: floor plans, elevations, ceiling plans and cross-sectional surveys.
Our Peterborough projects are carried out in line with the standards set by the Royal Institute Of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
At fosse surveying, we have executed an extensive number of varying-sized property floor plans. Our bespoke reports encompass the needs and requirements of your project, including details such as basic wall structures, in-detail fittings, fixtures and the placement of sockets. Our technology can inform your project with both 2D and 3D floor plans, helping to achieve completion efficiently.
Our high-grade equipment yields accurate elevation plans for infrastructure of every size. Our illustrations can consist of differing levels of detail, from fundamental information through to full architectural detail, according to the needs of your project. Street scene elevation drawings are often a planning requirement. Fosse Surveying can supply you with an in-depth report without having to gain access to your property.
Cross sectional information can be integrated into any type of measured building survey. When you provide your chosen cutline position, we can ensure that all of the appropriate sectional information needed to instruct your design is incorporated. The extent of detail included is reliant on the requirements of your project, from the most crucial instructions through to the addition of complex characteristics such as cornices and architraves.
In a similar layout to a floor plan, a reflected ceiling plan (RCP) illustrates the structure and characteristics of your ceilings, without the need for access via a ladder. We will work with you to ensure that your report is created with all of the detail necessary. Your finished report will be provided in your format of choice.
Internal structures such as beams and columns
Heights of doorways
Thickness of internal and external walls
Window cill and head heights
Electricity and gas meters
Rainwater and drainage pipes
Hazards on or near the site
An RCP provides a representation of the layout of your ceiling in a similar fashion to a floor plan. This information ensures that construction workers, designers and architects are able to visualise the complexities of your project.
House plans provide your project with a scaled representation of your property, enabling you to plan out construction effectively and preventing costly errors further down the line. If you want to change the appearance of your home’s exterior, either with the construction of an extension or conversion, a property survey can help to accomplish this more efficiently.
A building survey depicts the dimensions and detail of your property precisely. This determines whether there are any discrepancies present between the original plans and the actual building. This will also be used as a standard for future construction.
The time it takes to complete a measured building survey varies due to the specifications at project level. The time taken is also dependent on factors such as the size of the infrastructure and the detail required.
External and internal building surveys include the scanning of the structure to collate the fundamental data and the generation of a to-scale drawing of your building, complete with dimensions.
The cost of a measured building survey is dependent on the detail required and the time spent on-site. For more information on a quote, please get in touch.
