Measured Building Surveys

We understand the importance of accurate, cost-effective surveying so all our measured building surveys are conducted using the latest laser measurement equipment to RICS standard specifications. We supply raw data to pass onto your engineer, architect or in-house CAD team, or our experienced team of AutoCAD Technicians can produce drawings and plans to your specification – including 2D CAD drawings or 3D CAD modelling and scaled cross sections.

Imaging skills

If you only need floor plans, that’s fine with us, we can undertake as much or as little work and deliver data as the project specifies.

However, one of the real benefits of using Sky Revolutions for your measured building surveys is our ability to deliver added value in the form of building images and photo-realistic representations. We use digital cameras with very high resolution for ultra-detailed structural images – giving you a comprehensive set of image data to help you make more informed decisions.

3D laser scanning

We deliver detail and versatility with our 3D laser scanning techniques. It allows us to capture data remotely on site – especially helpful in areas that might be difficult to access and measure, areas that are intricate in detail, or areas that are historically or otherwise sensitive.

From floor plan surveys to geometric data, we use 3D laser scanning technology to deliver essential data in a digitally accurate point cloud.

All the detail – in less than a day

3D laser scanning in measured building surveys is a fast way of capturing and delivering large amounts of data in millimetre accuracy within a range of 130m per scan. This means only one site visit should be needed – helping you to keep the project costs down.

Output and deliverables

Measured building surveys can be undertaken on all building types and will include floor and roof plans, calculations of net and gross area or room size, internal and external elevations, reflective ceiling plans and sections.

Data can be produced in a variety of formats. Point Cloud data from 3D laser scanning can be supplied in TruView. Other outputs include Autodesk AutoCAD, Bentley MicroStation, 2D plans, maps and drawings, 3D CAD wireframes, elevations, cross-sections, HD images, film, and 360-degree panoramic photographs.

Working together

We operate to RICS standard specifications but are happy to discuss alternative, bespoke specifications as the job demands. Data is delivered quickly and to the highest standards – our surveying and construction expertise means we often provide additional information in the context of the project that enriches decision making.
