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.
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.
