What are measured surveys?
A measured building survey is undertaken to obtain dimensional information of a building in order to produce accurate drawings to scale. The level of detail is often dependent on the type of project being undertaken. For instance an estate agent plan doesn’t require the same level of accuracy as a project requiring bespoke steelwork.
Measured building surveys are undertaken by Surveyors using a range of measurement equipment from tape measures to 3D laser scanning devices. The scaled drawings produced are usually provided in CAD (computer aided design) format.
A poor set of measured survey drawings from the outset of your project can have drastic effects on how your build may look when it is finally completed. At best this may be an aesthetic issue, at worst you may have contravened the conditions of your planning application.
In extreme examples, local councils have ordered houses to be demolished as a result of planning conditions not being met.
We have undertaken measured survey work on a number of jobs where elements such as the roof have been built slightly too high, or an extension has been built too far into the garden. The council has then asked for a survey and the new construction had to then be adjusted.
This caused the owners of the properties serious headaches as they had to go back to the planning stage and submit post build applications. Looking back, each owner managed to get their project over the line. However, if they had a measured survey from the outset then the risk of these types of errors happening would be minimal.
A measured survey should be undertaken prior to any construction or refurbishment work so you can correctly design and plan your project. Measured surveys are typically utilised for:
- Planning applications.
- Building regulations.
- As built documentation.
- Quality control during construction works.
- Refurbishment works.
