Measured building survey
The most common use for a Measured building survey is to provide accurate plans of a building. The purpose might be eg.
- such plans have never existed,
- plans are lost or are of poor quality,
- the owner might need new plans in order to prepare reconstruction of the object.
Measured Building Surveys are often carried by utilising the latest non-contact technology (laser), although sometimes there is just no substitute for a tape measure.
Typical measured building survey includes:
- Any structural or partition walls
- Doors and windows, inc. all openings
- Stairs and lift shaft (space for lift)
- Sanitary fittings will usually be indicated but not measured
- Spot heights
- Stair details including rise and going
Typical level/height information; the following levels, heights or vertical dimensions are usually provided:
- Ceiling heights above floor
- Windows frame
- Heights of doors
- Floor to floor heights
Also set of digital photographs can be attached.
For the purpose of lesson steel/fiberglass tape will be used.
The result will be a plan of the 3rd and 4th floor with a precision of 1 cm. The plan will be compared against ground floor plan, which is part of the building's project.
