What Are We Offering?

Here is a general overview of what is included in our measured building survey services in London:

Measurement Techniques

Various measurement techniques may be employed, depending on the complexity and requirements of the project. These include traditional tape measurements, electronic distance measuring devices, laser measuring tools, or advanced technologies like laser scanning or photogrammetry.

Floor Plans:

Our surveyor will create accurate floor plans of the building, capturing each room or space’s layout, dimensions, and features. Floor plans can include walls, doors, windows, staircases, and any other significant architectural elements.


Elevations are drawings that represent the vertical surfaces of the building, like the external walls. Surveyors measure and document the heights, positions, and features of windows, doors, and other external elements to create accurate elevation drawings.


Sections are vertical slices through the building, showing the internal structure and layout. These drawings are useful for understanding the relationships between different floors, identifying potential issues, and planning renovations or modifications.

Roof Plans:

In some cases, a measured building survey may include roof plans. These plans detail the roof structure, including the shape, pitch, ridges, valleys, and any notable features or equipment.

3D Models:

Advanced techniques like laser scanning or photogrammetry can be used to create detailed 3D models of the building. These models provide a highly accurate representation of the existing structure.

Other Details:

Depending on the purpose of the survey, additional details may be recorded. This can include information about the building’s services (electrical, plumbing, HVAC systems), structural elements, site boundaries, access points, or any other relevant features.

    How Do We Conduct Measured Surveys?

    A measured building survey is conducted through a systematic process involving several steps. Here is a general overview of how our measured surveys in London are typically conducted:

    Pre-Survey Preparation:

    Our surveyors will gather relevant information about the building, such as its purpose, historical significance, and any specific requirements for the survey. They may also review the building’s existing documents, plans, or photographs to better understand its layout and features.

    Site Visit:

    Surveyors will visit the building to conduct the survey. They will bring the necessary measuring tools and equipment, such as tape measures, laser distance meters, total stations, or laser scanners, depending on the level of detail required.

    Measurement Process:

    Our team will take measurements of various elements within the building, such as walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and other architectural features. Using the chosen measuring tools, they will record these elements’ accurate dimensions, positions, and levels.


    The measurements obtained during the survey are used to create detailed building documentation. This can include floor plans, elevations, sections, and other relevant drawings. Our team uses computer-aided design (CAD) software to accurately represent the building’s layout and features.

    Data Processing:

    The collected measurements and documentation are processed and refined to ensure accuracy and consistency. This can involve transferring the field data into CAD software, aligning the measurements, and creating the final drawings or 3D models.


    The final deliverables of a measured building survey London include detailed drawings, plans, or 3D models, depending on the project’s scope. These documents accurately represent the existing building and can be used for renovation, design, property valuation, or facility management.
