We can provide Floor plans,  Elevational drawings, or a Topographical survey 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.

We are also able to gather information from any utility companies which can be added to your topographical survey drawings..

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

Photographic Facade Survey

SiteMaster Elevation – surveying to precise exterior views
Save Time and MoneyNow you can produce Elevational Drawings from Photographs

Photographic Facade Survey

Sitemaster Elevations Screenshot

SiteMaster Elevation is an independent add-on for SiteMaster. You can benefit from photogrammetric procedures by determining detailed measurements from freehand digital photographs or scanned images.

SiteMaster Elevation requires only one rectangle with two known side lengths for calibrating an image plan. The software lets you measure and draw a building in 2D with added height information on floors, openings etc.

It saves the exact measurement results by redrawing the image with points, lines, rectangles, polylines, arcs and circles. SiteMaster Elevation transfers drawing elements with state-of-the-art technology to your CAD system, e.g. or SiteMaster Building. After completing your measurements you can generate a report list of all measurements and areas. The results can be exported in excel lists.

Processing digital photographs of the building’s facade in SiteMaster Elevations allows you to enhance your project into a full 3D plan with precise exterior views. You can exchange drawing files between SiteMaster Elevation, SiteMaster (and other solutions) using the .FLX (PowerCAD) and .DXF file formats.

Elevational Drawings

Elevational Drawings

The UK’s leading provider of Graeberts Sitemaster software and Mobile CAD Solutions, Mobile CAD Surveying this week announced the launch of their  dedicated surveying site Measured Building Surveys net.

This new site is designed to facilitate their growing numbers of customers who just want information on Measured Building Surveys rather than having to wade through their massive main site which has hundreds of additional products, from a stylus pen, to software and on to surveying equipment.

Measured Building Surveys.net will help customers find what they are looking for quickly and allow them to contact them with their requirements much faster.

So anyone interested in having some survey work carried out, take a look at their site and view some of the floor plans and elevational drawings they have produced for all types of customers.

Taken from their site:

“If you need a measured building survey or even several measured building surveys, you have come to the right place. If time is of the essence, or clients time constraints are limited on site, we can accomodate you. Whether your survey project is large or small, a few square metres up to thousands of square metres we can meet your requirements. We have vast experience of Measured Building Surveys, floor plans and elevational drawings, everything from apartment blocks, and flats, to churches, embassies, supermarkets and shopping malls and have carried out measured survey programmes encompassing hundreds of properties. A schedule can be drawn up to suit you! Floor Plans can be for many different reasons, for more information see our Measured Surveys page.

We carry out the Measured Building Surveys ourselves ‘in house’, wherever possible, however, because we deal day in day out with hundreds of surveyors Worldwide using the Sitemaster Building range of software we have built up a large network of surveyors who can be called on to help us out if we are unable to do the work ourselves due to current workloads.

Measured Building Surveys

September 3rd, 2009 2 comments

Floor PlansIf you need a measured building survey or even several measured building surveys, you have come to the right place. If time is of the essence, or clients time constraints are limited on site, we can accomodate you.

Whether your survey project is large or small, we can accommodate your requirements. We have vast experience of measured surveys,  everything from apartment blocks, and flats, to churches, embassies and supermarkets and shopping malls and have carried out measured survey programmes encompassing hundreds of properties.  A schedule can be drawn up to suit you!

We carry out the Measured Building Surveys ourselves ‘in house’, however, because we deal day in day out with hundreds of surveyors Worldwide using the Sitemaster Building range of software we have built up a large network of surveyors who can be called on to help us out if we are unable to do the work ourselves due to current workloads.

We are able to carry out surveys anywhere in the UK, most parts of  Western Europe, most of Eastern Europe, the USA and Canada and Australia.  We pride ourselves on our excellent reputation for quality, customer service and value for money.

Measured Surveys – Floor Plans

We can provide Floor plans with varying levels of detail – from simple walls, columns, doors and window surveys, to a fully  detailed data set including all 3D information (sill & head heights, stair riser and going details, door heights, ceiling heights,  beam details etc.). As part of our measured surveys, the surveyors can also pick up and highlight other information such as  any electrical and data points, sanitary fittings, incoming mains positions, plant, fire fighting and detection equipment,
security equipment and signage.

Measured Drawings Check

Many times, plans exist but their accuracy is in doubt or change management has been poor, we can carry out a  check survey,
this can be a very cost effective way to bring the existing plans up to date.

From yours or your clients existing drawings, we are able to compare distances on the drawing with dimensions taken on site
and produce a report indicating where any inaccuracies lie. Mobile CAD Surveying can report on percentage variation between
existing drawing and situation on the ground as well as any changes in the buildings layout.

  • Measured Building Surveys
  • Energy Assessment Drawings
  • Floor plans and elevations
  • Drawing Validation Surveys
  • Check existing drawings
  • Land Surveys and Topographical Surveys

A good CAD drawing, deriving from a good survey, will be put to a host of other uses and as such, will become a valuable
commodity that pays for itself in no time.

Survey Methodology

Surveys are conducted using a hand-held Laser Measure (Leica Disto A6 or Hilti PD38) coupled via ‘Bluetooth’ technology to
a hand-held microcomputer (Samsung Q1 ULTRA). This approach, which produces the CAD 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.
A precision of ± 5mm over 100 metres is achievable with this equipment – giving a normal working accuracy of ± 25mm
between any two points after building tolerances have been taken into account.

Our Measured Building Surveys typically include the following elements (but can include anything the customer requires):-

Types of Measured Building Survey

Typical Measured Building Survey Includes:-

  • Any structural or partition walls
  • Doors and windows, window reveals inc. all openings
  • Stairs and lift shafts
