Measured building surveys, using modern scanning equipment, help to remove much of the cost-increasing and time-wasting issues physical measuring can drive. For example, without comprehensive measurements and data to hand, you will simply continue to spend money. The mathematics are clear. It is cheaper to get measurements and data down pat early on in proceedings than to continue paying for adjustments and further analysis along the way. Human errors will require you to head back to your project and to redo large parts time and again. As you may imagine, this will result in you needing to pay specialists for more hours spent measuring, and it may also mean that you have to pay more for additional tools and services. Failure to rely on a full measured survey may also mean that you need to push your project timescales back by a considerable way. If you are spending time fixing errors and catching up to major issues, you will start losing track on deadlines, and will therefore risk losing revenue by disappointing clients. Crucially, keeping your clients happy is the main objective. By relying on outdated or inappropriate measurement means, you are going to disappoint your end users, and you may even disregard certain planning requirements and permissions.
