Holland Villas Road, Holland Park, London
Measured Building Survey
We were commissioned to undertake an extensive measured building survey and subsequent production of floor plans, elevations and section drawings for a house in Holland Villas Road, Kensington. The grand property is a 10 bedroom mansion spanning from the basement level all the way to a sixth floor in the loft. The project was one of THS Concepts’ largest projects and was carefully planned out.
THS Concepts sent three surveyors to the property armed with Leica Laser distance measurers and a Leica TS02 EDM to survey the walls, levels, heights and overall shape of the building. The survey was extensive and required two trips back to the property to pick up all the required detail. Whilst on site the surveyors were drawing up the survey in CAD. Undertaking a large portion of the drawing work on site allows for a greater accuracy and less confusion if the Surveyor cannot quite remember the arrangement of the building.
The drawing up process was finished off in the office where our surveyors and draughtsman worked for a number of days, tidying up and producing a set of drawings that were highly presentable, easy to read and produced in a controlled manner.
Our client was sent a final copy of the PDF plans, elevations and sections along with an organised and tidy DWG file. The drawings were used and edited to produce planning regulation drawings as well as building control drawings for the works.
