Measured building surveys offer complete analysis of a given space or area. These surveys are useful when calculating space needed in specific design projects. For example, you may take up a measured building survey when you need to embellish or improve an initial plan, and before you head to the full construction phases. Measured building surveys make use of 3D laser scanning to map points onto a physical area, and to derive hyper-specific and accurate results. Previously, architects and designers have relied on paper blueprints and less advanced models for analysis. However, detailed reports are now the standard through 3D laser scans and services. Measured surveys can come in useful when you need to scan an area for renovation, refurbishment, or for installing new fixtures and fittings.
