Enhancing Precision and Efficiency: The Role of As-Built Surveys

As an architect, you know the frustration of working with mismatched, erroneous or outdated drawings. Embrace updated As-Built drawings to access current and precise dimensions, empowering you to design with confidence and accuracy. This not only elevates your designs and expedites your workflow but paves the way for a seamless construction journey.

Our As-Built Surveys provide:

  • In-Depth Site Analysis using point cloud and 360 data ensures every architectural decision is informed and precise. Including insights potentially overlooked during the site visit.
  • 3D Revit Models allow for iterative design iterations, architectural renders and engaging visualisations.
  • Updated As-Built Drawings, derived from 3D and 360 surveys, provide a current and accurate representation of the building envelope and surroundings.
  • Precision Digital Twin created as a point cloud or model provides an archival record of existing conditions to be easily  referenced in future. 

When you're working on renovating a space, it's not uncommon to find mismatches between the current structures and outdated blueprints. With our As-Built Surveys, you'll have access to up-to-date and accurate data, making sure your renovations fit seamlessly with the existing space. This not only simplifies your project management but also guarantees timely and precise fit-outs.

  • In-Depth Site Analysis ensures renovations align perfectly with the existing structure and optimise the existing space.
  • 360 Surveys When planning store layouts, you want a panoramic view of the space to improve planning and design accuracy. Optimise customer flow, experience and product placement.
  • 3D Revit Models reduce planning and design timelines and create immersive visualisations and walk-throughs. Builds client confidence and project support.
  • Updated As-Built Drawings provides precise and current drawings to inform decision making, expedite planning and design processes. 

As a building facilities manager, when you're organising repairs or maintenance outdated or vague plans can be a challenge creating doubt and unnecessary cost. With updated As-Built surveys, you gain up-to-date and precise insights of your property. This streamlines your understanding and clearly communicates the property elements and dimensions, guaranteeing that your properties are accurately assessed and managed.

  • Updated As-Built Drawings offer a clear, current view of the interior and exterior, simplifying maintenance and management. Provide up-to-date drawings to project teams and contractors for more accurate scope of works.
  • 360 Tours when showcasing a property, you want a comprehensive view of the space, so that potential tenants, buyers and contractors can virtually experience the property. Use immersive tours to showcase the property without a site visit.
  • 3D Revit Models allow for iterative design iterations, architectural renders and engaging visualisations. Provide your contractors with consistent information regarding every aspect of the building and its features.

When you assess properties for sale or lease, you might encounter discrepancies due to outdated or imprecise property information. By leveraging As-built Surveys, you gain an up-to-date and comprehensive perspective of the property. This insight empowers you to set precise valuations, optimizing your returns.

  • Gross Lettable Area (GLA) assessing a property's value or setting lease rates requires a comprehensive grasp of the entire space on offer, encompassing common areas. This insight ensures you're well-equipped to make strategic and informed choices.
  • Nett Lettable Area (NLA) When leasing out a space, you want to know the exact usable area, so that I can price it accurately and ensure tenant satisfaction.
  • 360 Tours when showcasing a property, you want a comprehensive view of the space, so that potential tenants or buyers can virtually experience the property.
  • Updated As-Built Drawings provide a detailed, current view, leading to informed valuations.

When crafting bespoke designs, you might face challenges with installation or misalignment because of outdated or incorrect drawings. In some cases the measure-up is too time-consuming or complex. With updated As-Built drawings, you can access exact dimensions, for every aspect, guaranteeing that your custom pieces align flawlessly. This not only minimises waste but also cuts down on revisions, delays and costs, streamlining your production process.

  • In-Depth Site Analysis ensures the site environment is suitable for the fabricated parts and identifies potential issues. This is crucial in difficult to access positions and at heights.
  • 3D Revit Models allow visualisation of how custom parts fit into larger structures, plus designs can be tested in digital space.
  • Updated As-Built Drawings ensure precision, efficiency and cost avoidance.

When you're on the job, building or adjusting construction using outdated drawings can easily ruin a project, causing delays, rework and avoidable costs. But with updated As-Built Surveys, you're equipped with up-to-date, precise plans and drawings, streamlining your construction process and gets contractors on the same page. This not only minimises mistakes but also speeds up your project's timeline, ensuring you deliver on time, and within budget.

  • In-Depth Site Analysis ensures that construction decisions are based on actual site conditions, reducing errors and accelerating project completion.
  • Engineering (Pre-Installation) Surveys When laying foundations or installing support systems, you need precise site measurements and information, so that the installation process is managed without issues.
  • 3D Models allow project teams to visualise and assess the build and measure and modify its components in isolation or as a whole. Overall reducing waste, errors and rework.

Updated As-Built Drawings provide quality-assurance and compliance to your clients specifications. This provides confidence for awarding future work.
