Survey – 1 Week
Draughting – 1 Week
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 our largest projects and was carefully planned out.
THS Concepts sent three surveyors to the property armed with Leica Laser distance measurers and a Leica Total Station to survey the walls, levels, heights and overall shape of the building. The survey was extensive, requiring two trips back to the property to pick up all the required detail.
Whilst on site we were drawing up the survey in AutoCAD. 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 later on.
The measured survey 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 CAD file. The drawings were used and edited to produce planning regulation drawings as well as building control drawings for the works.
THS Concepts undertake measured building surveys for Architects & designers looking to design their projects more effectively.
