Measured Building Surveys

From Floor Plans to Elevations and Sections, Terrain Surveys have delivered thousands of Measured Building Surveys over two decades. We undertake Measured Building Surveys both in London and throughout the UK, providing bespoke quotations in 48 hours.

Measured building surveys are an essential component of renovation or re-modelling projects, providing architects, designers and other construction professionals (as well as homeowners) with a highly-accurate 2D or 3D representation of any respective building. By capturing exact measurements of features (both architectural and structural) from both residential and commercial buildings, measured building surveys enable professionals to plan and undertake projects with full confidence.

Measured building surveys provide essential existing building information in the form of floor plans and elevations, with important structural elements such as walls, columns and beams clearly identified. As well as these structural elements, measured building surveys provide all architectural features in a building, such as windows, doors and service fittings, all of which are normally included alongside floor levels and feature heights.

On heritage projects or buildings of historical interest, surveying of ornate or unique detailed features can be included. The measured building survey can be tailored to include these elements in the form of detailed floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, as well as internal elevations cross sections.

Measured building surveys play a vital role in efficient and informed decision making across the various industries, from architecture and construction to property and facility management. Their accuracy and comprehensive data make them an invaluable tool in the built environment.

How are measured building surveys undertaken?

Thanks to the wizardry of modern technology, gone are the days of measured building surveyors painstakingly taking measurements manually; state-of-the-art laser scanning equipment, paired with an experienced measured building surveyor, is unquestionably the most reliable way to accurately measure a building, which is why many architects and other professionals instruct a surveying company to undertake such surveys on their behalf.

How are measured building surveys delivered?

Measured building survey drawings are generally presented electronically in CAD format for ease-of-use. 2D CAD drawings are the norm, but, with the industry shift towards BIM, we are able to deliver measured building survey drawings in 3D format, including 3D Revit models.
