Prepare for your upcoming renovation or construction with measured building surveys and laser scanning provided to you by the experts at Engineering Land & Building Surveys Ltd in Dorking, Surrey. Building and construction surveys are always important to prove that your extension adheres to local planning authority standards and does not infringe on the rights of others. Our experts help you to understand the rules for building through full service tracing, scanning, and surveying.
These surveys measure all physical dimensions of already existing structures, using lasers and computers for accuracy. Whether you are refurbishing a hotel or extending an office, we measure each room, both inside and out, and locate power points for your design.
When you are building an extension on your roof, you need to make sure that the add-on doesn't reduce light for surrounding buildings. A rights of light survey ensures that your extension does not obscure other people's daylight, meaning that you are not infringing on the law.
Elevations are important for Grade 1 listed buildings. Construction workers are unable to touch the building's fabric, unless plans are produced for English Heritage™, and if you damage that fabric during construction, it must be rebuilt. During our building surveys and tracing services, we check for damage, and provide a permanent digital record of the building for your peace of mind. Detailed elevations and streetscapes are a usual requirement for planning applications. Using remote laser equipment we can accurately plot the heights and positions of all buildings on-site and nearby.
Carried out on properties, laser scans produce a point cloud which allows surveyors to create 3D models of properties. The models have many purposes, including replicating structures, providing a permanent record, and allowing for all-round flexibility. Laser scanning saves both time and money, may be set up without interruptions, and offers near perfect accuracy. Using the latest technology, we are also capable of scaling the models. Completed at the client's property, laser scanning is the next generation of building survey. On arrival, our team will set up the laser, which is an automatic machine, meaning that it is left to carry out the scan without the need for a human to operate it. This makes it especially suited for more dangerous or inaccessible locations.
