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.

Sitemaster EPC

January 25th, 2011 Comments off

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) were introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of buildings.

Accredited energy assessors produce EPCs alongside an associated report which suggests improvements to make a building more energy efficient.

Now EPC Surveyors have a fantastic new tool at their disposal to help speed up the whole process.

SiteMaster EPC (BRAND NEW!)

Sitemaster EPC

Sitemaster EPC

Sitemaster EPC is a leap forward in the commercial EPC process, developed by the German software manufacturer Graeberts who are responsible for the unique and award winning Sitemaster Building mobile CAD surveying solution.

Sitemaster EPC software is a leap forward in the commercial EPC process, developed by the German software manufacturer Graeberts who are responsible for the unique and award winning Sitemaster Building mobile CAD surveying solution.

Sitemaster EPC must be considered by all non- domestic energy assessors who wish to stay competitive in their field.

Sitemaster EPC uses sitemaster as its framework in producing the floor plans required for an EPC, but then prompts the assessor to enter further details required for an EPC. Sitemaster EPC is fully integrated with IsBEM and automatically enters the data from the site plan to produce an EPC on site! (where a network connection is available)

Assessors use a tablet PC and a blue tooth enabled laser measure (supplied on purchase) to plot the building directly into the software. Minimal equipment helps ease of surveying with no need for paper and pencil, data is stored easily, can be adapted easily and forwarded on to be audited easily.

Sitemaster EPC not only reduces an assessor’s workload it also presents additional revenue streams from the same process, requiring little or no extra work. The highly accurate CAD plans produced whilst creating the EPC can be sold on to be used as:

•   Floor plans for sales purposes
•   Fire safety plans
•   Lease plans
•   Architectural plans (although higher degrees of accuracy will have to be obtained)

To see more of what Sitemaster EPC does and the benefits gained, click here

Mobile CAD Surveying was instrumental in the development of Sitemaster EPC, we can offer further details on the system, your further equipment specifications and the financial options available to obtain Sitemaster EPC. We also provide training to the use the system which is a must to gain optimal performance.

We know first hand the labour intensive process of producing a NDEPC and felt an easier approach was needed to make us more profitable, so we helped develop Sitemaster EPC.

If you have any questions or would like to talk further please email us

Sitemaster Building Software v5 Released

January 12th, 2011 Comments off

logowhitebackground-smallSitemaster Building v5.0 Launched with additional features.

Last week Mobile CAD Surveying announced the release of Sitemaster Building v5.0 with additional features. Sitemaster is their award winning mobile surveying solution software from the well known Graebert stable.

For those already familiar with Sitemaster Building, you will be aware that producing the CAD drawings ‘on site’ in ‘real time’  is the future of surveying and Measured Building Surveying,  in fact, isn’t it amazing to think that just five or six years ago virtually all surveyors took pencil and pad, tape measure or possibly a laser measuring device out into the field and spent several hours measuring up sites, buildings and all related detail before returning to the office to redraw the detail into their CAD package.

Now we have, NO more return visits to site due to blunt pencils and inaccurate paper documentation, NO guesswork, NO wrong data documentation NO sagging tape measures

Additional features include:-

* Support of the Windows 7 operating system

* Support of the Leica Disto D8 and D3A BT laser distance meters

* New Room Depth option….When creating door openings, you can not only measure the lengths of the wall right-hand and left-hand to the opening in the next room but also in one operation the depth of the room. Thus, the shape of a rectangular room can be generated immediately in the drawing. This will vastly speed up production of lower tolerance drawings…EPC for instance.

* New Building Services Library….The Symbols area of the program now additionally provides a Library for Building Services which allows you to insert blocks for electrical power supplies, water supplies, and equipment such as boilers or extractors, into your floor plans.

* New Dimensioned Symbols command… the Symbols area lets you now add a dimension line with a Symbol on it. You can quickly add to your site measurement plans, measured from one end point of a wall in the classic SiteMaster style. This feature is intended to be used especially to collect building services information (for example for kitchen planning), but basically can be used with any other symbol of the built-in or customized symbol library.

* Door and Windows can now be placed into any wall. These can be openings which cover the entire length of a wall (in fact replacing the wall), or openings which have zero distance at one end of a wall.

* The WIDTH attribute of door and window openings with retainer always gets the smallest (clear) distance of the opening.

Why not download a FREE trial version now and see for yourself the future of mobile surveying solutions.

Mobile CAD Surveying Ltd the main and preferred Graebert dealer in the UK, supplying mobile surveying solutions Worldwide.

Coming soon! Sitemaster Building v6 – the next Generation of SiteMaster Optimized for Building Information Modelling (BIM)  Combines Mobile Deployment, 3D Building Measurement and Object Modelling into a Single Solution

Using the ARES Core Engine for AutoCAD Compatibility. To express an interest or to be kept up to date with developments use their contact form.
