WHAT IS A MEASURED SURVEY?
A measured survey refers to the process of measuring and producing drawings of a building. The process is typically undertaken prior to a building project being undertaken.
The objective of a measured survey is to accurately record and present a true representation of a building or parts of it. The form a measured survey is usually represented in is CAD (Computer Aided Design) drawings.
A measured survey is important when beginning a construction project. Having a set of accurate, high quality drawings of your project is important to ensure future designs are workable and un accounted costs are minimised.
A measured survey is undertaken using a range of tools from simple tape measures to sophisticated 3D laser scanning devices. Once the survey team has undertaken the process of a measured survey then they would process the data and produce a range of drawings for their client. Typical drawing types include floor plans, elevations and sections drawings.
Don’t think you need a full measured survey for your project? A floor plan may suffice.

How Much Does A Measured Building Survey Cost?
No two measured building surveys are the same. That’s because no two properties are identical and price can vary based on a number of factors including property size, layout complexity, number of drawing types requested and more.
When we receive a quotation request we use tools such as Google Streetview and Google Earth to gauge the expected complexity. We then issue a tailor-made quotation outlining our fixed price costs and a suggested survey date.
As a customer service-driven business we believe every client deserves the best, so we do our best to offer you the most competitive quote. We work to the highest surveying and drawing standards which helps to build long-term relationships with our clients.
