Measured Building Surveys

Here at South West Surveys we offer a full measured building survey service that comprises floor plans, internal & external elevations, sections and roof plans. All of these can be supplied as a standalone service or as a complete measured building service.

We use laser scanning technology as it is quick, precise and unobtrusive. We are able to carry out the work without disturbance to the fabric of the building and with minimal disturbance to the occupants.

We carry out measured building surveys in Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham, Gloucester and elsewhere in the UK for a variety of projects. We can cater for small domestic properties to all types of industrial buildings, warehouses, retail spaces, historic and listed buildings.

Full Architectural Surveys

Our measured building surveys show a high level of detail and accuracy. Everything from skirting to coving and ceiling lights can be captured and measured to provide an accurate 3D image of a building. The positions of pillars and other supporting elements, windows and doorways, handrails and steps are all accurately recorded.

All elements of design are considered, including door positions and swing direction, sanitary ware and all fixed furniture (e.g. built in cupboards), all changes in floor and ceiling level. Overhead detail is also shown, such as trusses, purlins, beams and so on.

M&E Surveys

We can also provide a full mechanical and electrical (M&E) service showing positions of all electrical power supply and distribution, telecommunications, heating, air conditioning, and ventilation items.

Types of Building Survey

We survey all building types, including flats and apartment blocks, churches, schools, hospitals, and supermarkets and high street shops. No building, or building complex, is too large for our surveyors to handle.

Client and project measured building survey specifications differ depending on their individual needs. We can produce full detail elevations or simply show the structural openings. Again, with section drawings, they can be a standard section or a full elevational section. If you have specific requirements for your project we would be delighted to discuss it in detail.

Survey drawings are provided in CAD 2D and/or 3D as required and in PDF format. Paper and film copies can be supplied if requested.

South West Surveys also offer surveys for lease and title deeds along with volume and area surveys such as Net Internal Area (NIA) is the useable area within a building measured to the internal face of the perimeter walls at each floor level with certain specified areas excluded. Gross Internal Area (GIA) is the area of a building measured to the internal face of the perimeter wall at each floor level. Gross External Area (GEA) is the area of a building measured externally at each floor level.
