October 18th, 2017 No comments

Measured Buildings Surveys throughout the UK

Mobile CAD Surveying Solutions Ltd  can accommodate either a simple single property floor plan for a domestic or logowhitebackground (Small)private customer to a complete schedule of buildings including whatever type of data collection the customer requires for commercial customers. If Architects or Surveyors and you require fast turn around building surveys, please give us a try! we currently work for dozens of architects, surveyors and designers around the UK and into mainland Europe, recently carrying out projects in France, Switzerland and the Channel Islands, or where they haven’t the capacity or staff to handle their own surveys or where they just require someone to make sure the job is done right, first time, Mobile CAD Surveying Solutions can help you.

Currently we are working on many Commercial surveys around the country and also a number of supermarket dimensional surveys and many domestic measured surveys in the UK and into Europe, if you require any type of Measured Building Survey then please contact us.

 

We can provide Floor plans,  Elevational drawings, or a Topographical survey also Underground Utility Traces and all types of Measured Building Survey with varying levels of detailed work – from simple walls, columns, doors and window surveys, to a fully detailed data set including all 3D information including cill & head heights, stair riser and going details, door heights, ceiling heights, beam details, fitted furniture etc.. As part of our measured surveys, the surveyors can also pick up and highlight other information for example: any electrical and data points, sanitary fittings, incoming mains positions, plant, fire fighting and detection equipment, security equipment, signage and so on.

An accurate  topographical survey or land survey is essential to any project that you are considering and can lessen the possibility of costly mistakes or unforeseen issues later on.  The amount and type of topographical survey data that we collect on site is always based on your specification. However, our experienced land surveyors will use their knowledge of planning and development issues and requirements to provide additional information that might be vital for any future design or planning application. We are also able to gather information from any utility companies which can be added to your topographical survey drawings..

Revit models – we are currently working on a number of modelling jobs, producing 3D Revit models from our own survey data and laser scans.

360D Panoramic Photography – We can also provide a 360 degree photographic record of your project to aid with design/construction

The ‘as built’ documentation provided by the company is highly detail oriented, every project can be accompanied by 360 degrees photographs to provide better understanding of the plans. Photographs give clients instant visuals which help in picturing the plan in a much better fashion.

We can also provide other additional land surveying services that you may require, for example; underground services tracing ( GPR – Ground Penetrating Radar) and 3D laser scanning enable us to provide you with a one-stop-shop for your surveying requirements.

BOSCH GCL 2-50 C + GCL 2-50 CG Professional

April 3rd, 2017 Comments off

BOSCH GCL 2-50 C + GCL 2-50 CG Professional – for more fun on construction sites!

Measuring with an inch ruler, a guideline or hand drafted lines is dreadful and not always precise. But this is a thing of the past – thanks to modern laser technology. The up-to-date pro uses a handy combi laser, which is not only easier to use but relieves day-to-day work immensely. And because laser measurements are done in a matter of minutes, if not seconds, there is always enough time for some fun on site.


 

For professional craftsmen of any trade the GCL 2-50 CG and the GCL 2-50 C are a real treat! They support you and your work in so many efficient ways. Both lasers are operated with a wireless bluetooth connection in combination with an app – connectivity reaching an impressive distance of up to 50 meters. The GCL 2-50 CG is able to project a green laser line – one which is visible even in the most difficult light situations. The green laser lines are up to four times more visible than the red lines of comparable equipment. By the way: The perfect companion for your combi laser is the RM 3 Professional multifunctional mount, which can also be operated wireless with the app, ensuring flexible positioning and attachment options.

Both combi lasers are ideal for levelling and setting plumb points in areas such as:

  • Hanging ceilings
  • Levelling drywalls with vertical laser lines
  • Electronic installations
  • Lighting grids

and many more…

Measured Building Survey Software Providers

June 3rd, 2013 Comments off

logowhitebackground (Small) UK Market leaders in Mobile Surveying Solutions  Mobile CAD Surveying Ltd says that customer enquiry numbers  have increased in their Award Winning Sitemaster Building software over the last few months. More enquiries are coming through than at anytime for the last couple of years and Surveyors and Architects make up the bulk of this new stream of business, this must be good news for the Construction Industry, because if Architects are asking for ways to speed up their survey processes then it must mean business is steadily increasing for them also.

Mobile CAD Surveying Ltd also mention that their surveying arm Measured Building Surveys.net has also noticed a significant increase in enquiries coming through over the last couple of months too and they have won a number of good quality contracts.

A spokesman said lets hope this is a sign that the future of the Construction Industry is starting to look up and turn around slowly, if Architects and Surveyors are seeing an upturn in work then Construction Company workloads will eventually follow suit.

Survey Methodology

Surveys are conducted using a hand-held Laser Measure (Leica Disto D3aBT, Leica Disto D8 or a Hilti PD38) coupled via ‘Bluetooth’ technology to a hand-held microcomputer, many options for mobile micro computers or tablet pc’s are now available on the market.

This approach, which produces the .DWG / .DXF and CAD (AutoCAD) drawing during the survey process, allows us to establish and accurately check all building dimensions while on site. Significant improvements in survey quality are gained using this equipment when compared with traditional survey methods.

Check measurements are taken to ensure accuracy Gone are the days where two men would hold a sagging tape measure from one end of the room to the other, that old method is history! There are NO more return visits to site due to blunt pencils and inaccurate paper documentation, NO guesswork, NO wrong data documentation NO sagging tape measures.

John Deere

December 11th, 2012 Comments off

In 1837, John Deere, blacksmith and inventor, had little more than a blacksmith shop, a piece of discarded polished steel, and an idea that would help farmers, changing the face of agriculture for all time.

From that simple plough, we move on to today much more sophisticated equipment, the likes of the John Deere Skid Steer Loader and the John Deere Skid Steers, these high tech machines are manufactured entirely in-house, the Skid Steer Loader is amongst the most feature rich Skid Steers available. Countless operator-requested enhancements make it one of the most sought after Skid Steer Loaders around.

The John Deere range of plant and equipment today, still sports the famous leaping deer logo, albeit in a much different form. Many people aren’t aware that the first trademark using the leaping deer was registered in 1876, although registration papers indicated the mark had been in use for three years prior to this as  John Deere was well established in Moline by this time and the company was producing more than 60,000 plows a year, which were commonly referred to as ‘Moline plows’ because of the factory location. Obviously, there was a need for an official registered trademark, an official trademark was also the only protection against copying and deception. It‘s interesting that the original trademark shows a type of deer common to Africa, but  the native North American white-tailed deer was used in future trademarks. The trademarks were gradually upgraded over the coming years and eventually in the year 2000, the new green and yellow logo that is shown below,  became the standard that we see today.

Over the years the Company has moved into many other markets, GPS equipment being one of the newer ones, under the name Navcom, and like its long history in construction plant and equipment, is again is known for quality and reliability
