Comprehensive Measured Building Surveys for Every Property

From domestic to commercial properties, CSW Surveys have the experience to deliver highly detailed measured building surveys. this may be to assist in the design or refit of an existing property.

Whether it's a domestic residence or a commercial property, our experienced team possesses the expertise to provide accurate and comprehensive floor plans for design and refit projects. We pride ourselves on capturing even the smallest structural features, ensuring that our surveys meet the highest standards of precision.

Our surveys include structural features including walls, doors, window positions / heights and can also position fixtures and fittings such as electrical points / light switches, furniture and sanitary ware.

We also provide Elevation surveys of building interiors and exteriors. Our use of the latest 3D scanning equipment allows us to obtain the required data incredibly accurately.

Our surveys can be presented in 2D plans or 3D Models to aid any projects requirements.

  • Roof Plans

  • Laser Scanning

  • 2D or 3D Plans

Precise Floor Plans for Design and Refit Projects

When it comes to design or refitting an existing property, having detailed and precise floor plans is essential. At CSW Survey, we understand the importance of capturing every aspect of a building's structure. Our measured building surveys include comprehensive information such as walls, doors, window positions, heights, fixtures, and fittings, including electrical points, light switches and furniture. By providing this level of detail, our surveys empower architects, designers, and contractors to plan and execute their projects with confidence and accuracy.

Elevation Surveys

In addition to our measured floor plans, CSW Survey also offers elevation surveys of building interiors and exteriors. Leveraging the latest 3D scanning equipment, we ensure that the data we capture is incredibly accurate. Our precise elevation surveys provide a holistic view of a building's structure, allowing for more informed decision-making during the design and construction phases. From intricate architectural details to external features, we can provide an invaluable resource for project visualisation and analysis.

2D Plans and 3D Models to Enhance Project Understanding

We understand that different projects have varying requirements when it comes to visualising the surveyed data. That's why we offer flexibility in presenting our surveys in both 2D plans and 3D models. Our 2D plans provide a clear and comprehensive representation of the building's layout, while our 3D models offer a more immersive and detailed perspective. By utilising these advanced visualisation techniques, we help our clients gain a deeper understanding of the space, enabling them to make well-informed decisions throughout the project lifecycle.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a 3D Laser Scanning Survey?

A laser scanning survey is a fast and accurate way of capturing the spatial detail of an existing building or other structure. The 3D laser scanning process uses the latest high-definition laser scanner to capture precise geometric data within the built environment – both exterior and interior. 

What is the difference between 3D CAD Modeling and BIM?

The key difference between BIM and 3D CAD is that a BIM file is much more information-rich, and includes details of performance characteristics, specifications, and other non-physical data embedded in a shared 3D digital model of the project. 

What is the Importance or Advantages of Scan to BIM?

Scan to BIM allows for greater modelling accuracy for efficient renovation and restoration by digitalising as-built conditions. 

What is a Measured Drawing?

A measured drawing is an architectural drawing, made to scale, of a building or structure. From domestic to commercial properties, CSW Survey have extensive experience delivering precise, highly detailed measured drawings.

What is the Process of As-Built Surveys?

An as-built survey is the set of geometric surveys conducted on a building during and after its construction. Its aim is to produce drawings (with 2D and 3D models) that exhaustively describe the consistency of the building at that precise moment. The survey is also used to verify the conformity between the approved project and what has actually been constructed.
