What is a Measured Building Survey?

Existing Plans of your Property

A measured building survey is a detailed & accurate measurement of your property showing all the structural and architectural features. The survey gathers data, measurements and position of features of the of your property.

Unlike your estate agent’s plans, these are accurate and can be used for construction or legal matters.

It is done before any work is undertaken on your property, and it will be the baseline for other professionals to produce their designs and reports from.

What is Included in a Measured Building Survey?

A Measured Building Survey includes plans of your existing property. It does not include any proposed changes.

There are other terminology used by different people in the construction industry:

  • Existing Plans
  • Measured Surveys
  • Measured Surveys of Building

It includes the following type of plans:

  • Floor Plans
  • Elevation Plans
  • Section Plans
  • Ceiling Plans
  • Internal Elevation Plans
  • Roof Plans

It can also be combined with a topographical survey to produce topographical plans.

How long does it take to survey a property?

On average we survey a property in full within 6 hours. (This is based on a 2 storey semi-detached property.)

Our rule of thumb is that it takes 5min to survey a room, corridor or space.

Surveying the external and the loft areas can take up to 15min each setup.

We do pickup a lot of information in 5min; this is because we use a 3D Scanner to survey the property accurately.

Is an Architectural Survey a Measured Building Survey?

Short Answer: Yes

Architectural surveys is a terminology that is mostly used in America. In the UK we prefer identify the act of surveying an existing building as Measured Building Survey.

How much does a Measured Survey Cost?

All of our prices are fixed price lump sums. Unlike our competitors who charges on a day rate basis we can provide certainty on the costs of your surveys.

As specialists in Measured Surveys we have created our own formula in producing accurate costing information for our clients. You can even take a look at our online calculator to give you an idea of the costs.

What do you get from our Measured Survey?

You get existing drawings of your property in digital files that are acceptable for your planning permission and architects. We export the files to PDF and provide you the raw AutoCAD DWG files of your property.

In addition, all Icelabz customers can get their property in 3D view free of charge. Its just like Google street view but it is more accurate and PRIVATE!

How do we undertake our Measured Building Survey?

At Icelabz we undertake measured building surveys in a bespoke method using a unique process we developed in house. We survey all of the properties with a 3D scanner to capture as much detail and features as possible.

This allows us to produce evergreen data for future use. This means that we can go back and produce additional plans without actually going back to your property. We can add additional sections and elevations to areas that we have surveyed.

And with our unique customer service, you can come back to us months after the survey to query details and clarification free of charge. Most of our competitors end their liability with you after three – six months.

In the method above, the surveyor would use a 3D scanner to serving the property. It typically takes us 3 to 6 minutes per room to survey in high detail compared to 15 to 20 minutes for the same amount detail. This means we can be done within 5 to 6 hours in most projects.

You can take a look at a sample 3D file by filling the 3D sample form below.

Once the surveyor has completed the survey on a site, he will bring the information back to the office to process. We will process the data on a similar server that Pixar uses to produce the 3D animation. This technology allows us to process the information 10x faster so that we can start drawing your plans.

We use bespoke software and processes to produce the survey data ready for the drawing stage.

With the data ready we can have 2-3 surveyors and CAD technician to draw up your plans. We normally produce a high detail plan in 4.6 hours using a unique method that is not taught in universities or on youtube.

We then get a Snr. Surveyor to review all the drawings before issuing it to you by email.
