Record Breaking Results with Fast Turn around Measured Surveys

November 23rd, 2015 Comments off

trinity squareMobile CAD Surveying the measured building specialists were recently asked to provide floor plans and elevational drawings of a large office building in Hounslow, c.113,000sq ft. They turned round their quote and started on site within 7 days, completing the full survey just over a week later. Most projects are a rush these days, but they didn’t realise that Galliard Homes, the developer was ready to launch and market the site immediately even though completion was still two years away. It turns out that they were very successful and sold all 228 apartments within 3 hours of the doors opening. Mobile CAD Surveying Solutions are proud to be associated with this development and happy that their efforts to turn the project around so fast helped the client achieve record breaking results.

Sitemaster 2013 & Sitemaster BIM 2013

October 18th, 2013 Comments off

3d_model (Small)

SOON TO BE RELEASED!

SiteMaster BIM 2013 makes the creation of 3D building models from surveys incredibly simple, even to the point of the Disto usurping the role of the mouse

As we draw near to the Government’s strategy to require BIM across all public sector construction projects by 2016, architects and surveyors might like to know that BIM implementation on a site development project can even start before the design stage, using an efficient and cost effective 3D surveying solution -i.e. BIM on existing buildings and not just new build. SiteMaster BIM 2013 from Graebert iSurvey & Mobile CAD Surveying provides users with the ability to create fully object orientated 3D models using only a handheld laser distance meter.

Furthermore, the 3D models and 2D representations can be exported either inIFC, .dwg and other formats to architectsand engineers who, in the course of developing the 3D models further, can add materials, objects and other component information. SiteMaster BIM 2013 is the latest version of the SiteMaster surveying product family that is developed from Graebert’s ARESCAD engine. The same engine utilised in the very popular CAD software, DraftSight from Dassault Systèmes, which has been downloaded over 4.2 million times so far.

SiteMaster 2013 is a 2D surveying tool with 3D viewing, and SiteMaster BIM 2013 has additional 3D capabilities and features with an IFC export. SiteMaster 2013 & SiteMaster BIM 2013 run on Windows 7 and 8 devices, which connect via Bluetooth with a laser distancemeter that can very accurately record all distances, angles, elevations within a building. The whole system is designed to be used by surveyors of varying capabilities, but who may lack architectural skills – i.e., not so much concerned about why a window is offset within a wall, and the direction in which it opens, but in recording the exact measurements of the object itself.

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.
