Measured Survey on
Charming Coach House Property
Through recommendation DMP carry out a detailed Measured Survey in on a charming property in Pembury.
The survey was undertaken on a 2 storey coach house, with storage at ground floor including original traditional cobbled stone floor and 2 bedroom accommodation at first floor. The coach house formed part of the overall accommodation within the grounds of a 19th Century country house on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells.
We provided the building contractor with floorplans, 4 elevations and 4 sections of the building. Including the requested levels in order the drawings could be used for structural alterations and repairs to the coach house.
WHAT IS A MEASURED SURVEY?
Measured surveys entail taking accurate measurements of sites or structures in order to produce accurate scale drawings. They’re usually specified to a certain level of detail, with acceptable tolerances for accuracy, scale, delivery times, and costs. The information forms a basis for designing.
Measured surveys can vary in detail. A basic survey will include elements such as walls, doors, windows, and level changes. A more complex survey may include electrical layouts, plumbing and more precise information.
WHY HAVE A MEASURED SURVEY?
It is critical to begin a construction project correctly. A measured survey is an important part of this because it serves as the foundation for the design. Issues that arise at this stage will repeat and amplified throughout the construction process.
A measured survey is usually commissioned prior to any building or refurbishment work and forms the basis of the proposed designs. Without an accurate measured survey, future problems can occur. These could be:
- The proposed design not fitting or incorrectly sized.
- Over/under ordering of materials.
- Issues with local planning authorities
