We work closely with you, the client, to provide you with a tailored service that matches your precise needs
A measured building survey is a detailed plan of a building. It comprises different elements such as floor plans, elevations, cross sections, reflected ceiling plans and roof plans. The accurate dimensions, layout or volume of a building are essential for man projects, including refurbishment or redevelopment, facilities management or services layout, valuation or taxation, interior design layout, modelling or visualisation, licensing requirements, and the sale, acquisition and leasing of buildings.
