Survey Draughtsman

Measured Surveys - Floor Plans

We can provide Floor plans or as built plans with varying levels of detail - from simple walls, columns, doors and window surveys, to a fully detailed 3D survey (window sill & head heights, stair riser and going details, door heights, ceiling heights, beam details etc.). As part of our measured surveys, we can also provide other information such as electrical and data points, sanitary fittings, incoming services positions, plant, fire fighting and detection equipment, security equipment and signage.  

Measured Drawings Check

If the accuracy of existing plans are in doubt, we can carry out a check survey, which can be a very cost effective way to bring the existing plans up to date. From yours or your clients existing drawings, we are able to compare distances on the drawing with dimensions taken on site and produce a report indicating where any inaccuracies lie.
