We will survey all accessible floors in the property and provide plans showing all visible walls, windows, doors, spot height levels, ceiling/roof heights, window sill/head heights.
XP Surveys has years of experience conducting measured surveys, with some of our key surveyors having come from an architectural background where they used measured survey data done by other firms.
There are many reasons to commission a measured survey, but in this article, we’ll look at the top five benefits we believe measured surveys bring.
You and your clients will have a lot riding on these potential development projects. Stakeholders will need to feel confident that you can help them deliver what they have promised to their own clients, on time and on budget. To be successful in your role, and be confident in your plans you need a surveyor that can competently fulfill their end of the bargain. Decision makers need to have full trust that their surveyor will deliver accurate results.
We can confidently promise that our measured surveys are among some of the most accurate offered in the London area.
With our accurate measured building surveys, your clients will feel confident that their projects can be completed. Our drawings allow you to accurately scan the areas of your project to visualise and plan new builds down to their fixtures and fittings. This gives you the opportunity to create mockups of your plans to show to clients or investors, to reinforce their faith in you.
Measured survey costs are well worth paying, as you’ll avoid future costs in needing to repair costly mistakes made with less accurate equipment. Surveys pay for themselves in making projects easier and quicker to deliver, with minimal planning delays and wastage of time and material, potentially adding up to hundreds of percentage return on the survey cost.
To carry out our surveys, we use equipment capable of producing drawings with a maximum accuracy error of +/- 2mm. This enables the architect’s plans to be as close to their finished form as early as possible. Modern point-cloud scanning means you can import the data directly into to BIM software, or use our drawings in more traditional ways. Either way, you’ll save time and money by starting out with the data in your preferred format.
With accurate measurements, the correct amount of materials can be ordered. This means costs can be saved, as accurate information avoids the need to over-order.
We offer instant quotes for measured building surveys in London and throughout the Home Counties. Not only is our quoting process rapid, we can also book your survey plus produce drawings within five days.
This is beneficial because the quicker you can complete your projects from conception to completion, the more satisfied your clients will be, with earlier results for all parties.
Our measured survey process means there is no need for you to use a tape measure or any other type of measurement equipment. We’re extremely independent, our clients typically trust us to turn around a measured survey within one to two days depending on property dimensions.
When granted property access, we can be left to our work, but typically we will only need to provide one surveyor without the need for supervision, meaning your time and resources can be put to better use elsewhere.
Also you can specify the format that you’d like the survey data in, saving you the hassle of converting it into the correct files. XP Surveys are one of the most flexible in this regard, please let us know what format you’d like the drawings supplied in; AutoCAD, Revit, ArchiCAD, or PDF.
With accurate drawings to hand, architects, engineers and construction companies are able to plan future works including renovations, rebuilds, and re-equipping. Having access to drawings can help with obligations such as health and safety assessments, quantity surveying, and planning applications. A full and detailed Measured Survey is the base that architects or property professionals begin with to lead and influence the design and planning.
For older buildings where our clients are planning renovations accurate records, which include details such as building materials used, location of power outlets and water pipes, etc., allow for safe and sympathetic renovations, so that the original character of a property is not lost. An as-built measure survey is useful in listed building renovations and permissions, as well as backing you up on insurance or other claims you might need to make.
In conclusion, in the above article, we’ve picked out the top five benefits of a measured building survey likely for your project. However, each property and situation is unique and your reasons might not be listed there. In any case, we are confident that our team can incorporate your requirements for your next measured survey.
