Sitemaster Building Software

May 29th, 2009

For professional building surveys

The extensive features of SiteMaster Building are especially interesting for users that need to create and deliver professional CAD drawings.

The layer management supports the combination of several floor plans in one single file. Heights of rooms, openings and symbols can be recorded and exported. Lasered distances are recorded in the background and saved on an extra layer for proofing purposes.

Draw fast and accurate walls (as single or double line), windows, doors and symbols. You can draw rectangular and circular columns, Recesses, chimneys and niches/ducts. SiteMaster Building offers you more than 250 CAD and numerous editing commands. The program features associative dimensioning and room area calculation.

The Camera function allows you to insert icon-referenced inspection photos and images. SiteMaster Building contains an Image function for direct insertion and scaling of photos and image underlays with support for file formats as BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF and RLC digital photos and images.

VoiceNotes that can easily been inserted eliminate time consuming text markup by providing record and playback of high-compressed audio notes and instructions directly inside your drawings.

AutoCAD-compatible drawing symbols / blocks can be used. The Visual Symbol Manager lets you insert symbols ? as-measured, referenced or free in the drawing. You can export Excel-compatible .csv files with room/area lists and room schedule reports/symbol lists. The Check Distance function lets you compare ‘as-built’ distances to plan distances and record this comparison.

Experienced power users can use the visual Desktop, Menu and Toolbar Editor (DME2) and Lisp and/or C++ programming APIs to customize and extend the program furthermore.

Take out the guesswork
With Mobile CAD Surveying laser-precise, field created as-builts and existing condition floor plans, what you see in a building is exactly what you get.

With Commercial office space commanding a premium, building owners and managers can increase revenues by finding more gross rentable square footage space with Mobile CAD Surveying. Per current Standards, a resurvey typically yields a 2-8% increase in usable and rentable areas, which more than offsets the direct costs of a re-survey. Tenant discrepancies with occupancy costs based on square footage are mitigated, and building information for lease plans and leasehold improvements are current and easily accessible.

The Mobile CAD Surveying plans are client-friendly and serve as an excellent addition to the sales and marketing toolkit, or space verifications of leased property. Special considerations in the wording of measurements relative to existing tenant contracts are easily accommodated. Items clearly marked on the floor plan include:

·         Walls, windows and doors.

·         All rooms are clearly labelled and dimensioned.

·         Floor and building common areas, and vertical penetrations.

·         Usable and rentable areas.

·         Symbols showing key building component such as plumbing fixtures, kitchen appliances, office equipment etc.

    I have booked a demonstration of the Sitemaster software it sounds just what I am looking for.

    I am currently using this software and I can confirm it does what is says on the box, it is easy to use and has helped me produce my floor plans much quicker than when I was using conventional methods.

    My productivity has increased dramatically and make me look much more professional when I visit site. But the best bit is, I never have to return to site due to innaccurate or missing dimensions because when I walk off site, my plans are virtually finished and therefore I can see if they are correct or not before I leave the job.

    I was a initially a bit sceptical when I discussed this with Mobile CAD Surveying, but they proved it would do everything they said it would and more in person when we met. I recently used it on my first live project and sure it took me a little longer than I anticipated, however, as I walked off site with finished drawings, I still saved nearly a day on what I would have normally taken using traditional methods. I know on my larger projects it is going to save me days and days and will pay for itself in no time at all. In fact based on what I know now, my first medium sized project will cover the cost of the kit, I am pretty confident about that. Great product, kit and a great presentation too I might add from the Company.

    Well I had my demonstration, Mobile CAD Surveying Ltd carried it out at the beginning of the week. I had a few doubts and concerns initially, but they put those all to rest and proved to me how good and how beneficial this software would be for me. I have to say, it certainly has me thinking of how I approach my surveys in the future, this software and the kit they demonstrated could save me hours on small surveys and probably days on some of my commercial jobs.

    Its really amazing how easy they made it all look and following my demonstration I have been given a lot more information which really means it is a no brainer as regards making a decision on this. I hope to be placing an order as soon as I get my next decent sized project so I can take advantage of their training and use a live project to fund it.

    A great piece of software and kit as far as I am concerned.

    Good to hear you found the demonstration of benefit Peter. Most people doubt what we tell them initially over the phone, but once we can prove to them the Sitemaster software does what we say it does, they are usually convinced it is worth the investment.

    To be able to survey, measure and draw, complete floor plans On Site in Real Time, with NO errors a major cost and time saving benefit of this system, add to that there are NO return visits to site which can save an enormous amount of time, it really has to be seen to be believed.

    There are many more benefits, but these are best shown on a demonstration given by the Company.

    If you want any more information, help or advice, please contact us.

    I wouldn’t be without it now. It took me a couple of jobs to get to grips with it all (should have practiced on my house as they told me to do) but once I was reasonably up to speed with it, it all became clear how much time this is going to save me.

    A FANTASTIC piece of software and the Samsung Q1 ULTRA that was included in the kit can be used for so many other operations and I find myself taking it with me everywhere to use as a mobile office.
