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.

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.

Measured Building Surveys.net

December 17th, 2010 Comments off

logo-header-jpeg Measured Building Surveys.net have recently added a Topographical Survey service to their existing range of Measured Surveys, ‘As Built’ and Floor Plan Surveys.

“Work has been brisk over the last few months for the team and this includes commissions from the UK and abroad.  In fact we were asked to carry out some measured surveys in Ukraine, Eastern Europe. This proved to be very successful and the client was very pleased with the results, so much so that we are quoting for more work over there in the near future” a spokesman told us.

A New Opportunity for Construction Tradesmen!

June 17th, 2010 Comments off

d8_with_tablet_pcFOR ALL BUILDERS & CONSTRUCTION WORKERS OUT THERE! WHY NOT DIVERSIFY?

Steve was like a lot of people working a trade in the Construction Industry, due to the economic climate he was out of work more than in it. One day he saw an advertisement for Sitemaster Software, this piqued his interest as it was something allied to building that he knew and as he already carried out his own surveys for estimating purposes he thought that the added bonus of being able to draw up accurate floor plans
would give him another opportunity to earn a living doing something he already had an interest in and which could help in his normal job when things picked up. Sort of kills two birds with one stone!

So what did he have to loose, he sent off for more information and agreed to a FREE NO obligation demonstration. What Steve witnessed was professionally-finished building floor plans, area estimates and inspection drawings using a Bluetooth handheld laser talking directly to the software held on a UPMC (Ultra Mobile PC) tablet, he saw that there was no longer any need to take measurements using tape
measures, no need to write any notes or draw pencil sketches anymore, the dimensions are instantly inserted into the drawing programme and it draws the lines in real time – On Site!

Steve stated at the time “I have experienced first-hand the immediate gains that Sitemaster Building software can provide to construction and building information mangers in terms of accuracy, speed and cost-savings”

He was told of how this software had been instrumental in saving time and costs on many projects around the world, “On a recent service project, I was contracted to verify a commercial lessee’s office square metreage and was able to determine irrefutably that they were being overcharged by more than 25 square meters on their contract”. Quite a rental saving over a period of a few years. It is obvious that
where commercial office space commands a premium, the cost-savings to the lessee will be significant over time and positively impact their cash flow each month” Just one of the ways this software can be used effectively.

Building Talk recently commented “Sitemaster Building is an amazing application, and is generating a lot of interest in the marketplace”.

Steve was so impressed by what he was shown, that he decided to buy there and then and take up the optional offer of a days training. This was carried out in due course and Steve immediately put this software/ kit to good practice. In fact he was in touch with some old clients who gave him work from time to time, construction work, but they had none available just now, so he offered his services as a surveyor
and offered to draw up floor plans of some of their property portfolio, he knew through the grapevine that they needed this due to recent changes in legislation, the two negotiated a price and off Steve went to start his first proper floor plan survey. The first building he worked on took him some time, he was after all learning as he went along, but by the time he started the second project he had ironed out all the queries
and problems he was having and with the help of the training he had received and the telephone support from the company, he was well on his way.

He was now starting to produce finished floor plans much quicker and 700 – 800 square meters per day were not uncommon. He knew through experience that most surveyors/architects will hand sketch and measure maybe 500 – 700 square meters per day, and then spend at least another day back at the office drawing the floor plans up. Yet Steve on only his second project was walking off site at the end of the
day with circa 700 square meters surveyed, measured and drawn and of course FINISHED!  samsungandd8-300x300

It quickly dawned on him that there was a real opportunity here to offer this as a full time service and make some good money along
the way. What started off as an attempt to try and earn a bit more money due to lack of construction work, had now turned into a
possible future gold mine offering his services of providing finished, accurate floor plans quickly and efficiently both for his own clients and for others. He had now in effect gone from a pretty ordinary builder to a much sought after professional member of the construction
industry, more or less overnight, he now charges his clients on a per square metre basis for most projects as he has now got to a point where he can produce nearly 1000 sq metres per day on a large project.

Of course producing accurate floor plans is one thing, but the Sitemaster Software is so good it also works out area, volume and perimeter calculations of rooms, it also automatically and in the background builds up door and window schedules, lists of radiators, plug points, and in fact anything else you collect along the way, the data collection feature of this programme is ideal for Asset and Facilities Managers.

Along with the floor plans, Steve now finds he can charge for providing door and window schedules, that for most traditional surveyors/architects can take hours or even days to produce, takes Steve seconds with the push of a button. The programme does this all automatically for him, his earnings are now rising exponentially as he finds more ways and new markets to put this programme to work for him.

Steve has since shown this to some of his fellow workmates on the construction site and comments: “Once people see Sitemaster in action and witness the finished results, they can’t believe they have been using a tape measure and paper for so long”. “Architects, designers – anyone wanting to create as-built drawings can now complete the task in record time without leaving the clients site. Better yet, there is no need to send two people to a site and finished drawings can be generated up to 10 times faster than traditional measuring-tape and paper methods.”

Profiled in a recent Microsoft white paper, Sitemaster is claimed to be the first system of its kind to automate the creation of wireless, laser-generated as-built floor plans, area estimates and building inspections for architects, appraisers, contractors, engineers, estimators, facilities managers, floorplanners, estate agents and other professionals involved in the design, construction and management of
buildings.

Using a Leica Disto D3BTa handheld laser, Sitemaster facilitates instant on-site creation of detailed, AutoCADcompatible drawings on a Bluetooth wireless Pocket PC, Tablet PC or laptop computer running Microsoft’s Windows mobility operating systems.

“Sitemaster provides the missing link for thousands of potential clients”.

Now it is time for you Construction Tradesmen who are maybe looking for other ways of earning a living, to try this for yourselves, why not? What have you got to loose? It worked for Steve, why shouldn’t it work for you?
