A measured building survey is a full survey using 3D laser scanning technology to capture the data and information of an existing building or structure. It is the accurate representation of a building, showcasing the information, features and measurements within a 3D point cloud, scan to CAD or 3D BIM model.

A measured building survey will serve as a foundation and necessity for the design, construction and planning process of a building. It is usually requested when performing renovations, redevelopment of a property or structure and planning applications.

  • Information and data are captured with high accuracy due to the reliability of 3D laser scanning technology.
  • It is a swift and efficient service which can take up to 2 hours, according to the scale and conditions of your building project.
  • You receive detailed deliverables through a measured building survey service. This includes 3D point cloud, scan to CAD, 3D models, orthophotos and more.
