Measured Survey Works
A measured survey sits at the foundation of almost every renovation project, providing an essential blueprint of a site or structure. These surveys are crucial in capturing detailed insight into your property – from its outlines right down to the minute details, unique features, walls, and windows. Attention to this granular level of detail allows the surveying process to direct the project’s trajectory.
WHAT IS A MEASURED BUILDING SURVEY?
A measured building survey is a comprehensive and highly detailed survey that accurately documents the spatial layout and structural characteristics of a building. This includes internal and external dimensions, details regarding the structure’s utilities and services, as well as the location of specific features such as doors, windows, and even fixtures and fittings.
This type of survey is a fundamental tool for architects, builders, and developers as it provides an extremely accurate representation of a building in its current state.
Not limited to a simple 2D floor plan, a full measured building survey can also encompass sectional drawings, elevations, 3D models, and other visual representations of a property that can be utilised across a range of applications – from the refurbishment and renovation of existing spaces, to planning significant extensions or entirely new build projects.
In essence, a measured building survey serves as a blueprint for navigating and understanding the specifics of a building, offering a robust platform from which informed design decisions can be made. Base adopts industry-leading technology and tried-and-tested techniques to capture and present this important data with accuracy and precision.

Our Measured Survey Works Process
The first step is site assessment. This is where we perform a visual examination of the property to understand its layout and identify any potential access difficulties for measuring.
We use laser distance measures to obtain accurate measurements of the property. We document dimensions of all structural elements, from walls and windows to doors and staircases, both internally and externally.
These measurements are then used to create detailed floor plans, sections, and elevations which show the exact scale and layout of the property.
Throughout this process, we also note any visible structural defects, the specific materials used, and other unique architectural features significant for the design process.
Overall, a full measured survey allows us to collate a highly accurate and detailed record of the existing property to ensure any proposed architectural interventions comply with the current structural layout and conditions.
