Measured Building Surveys
Measured building surveys come in many different forms, covering a huge variety of buildings, architectural features and client specifications. Warner Surveys provides them all, and to the highest standards of quality and reliability.

Specification and Accuracies
Our building surveys can be specified to any level of detail and with any combination of deliverables including floor plans, external elevations and building sections. The level of accuracy of drawings will be related to the published scale (ranging from 1:200 for basic ‘real estate’ plans to 1:10 for particularly detailed or ornate work). Additional requirements like reflected ceiling plans, roof plans or internal elevations can also be specified.
A domestic survey could be required to enable an architect or developer to plan and design an extension, loft conversion or even a complete renovation of a private residence.
This could cover anything from multi-storey commercial properties, through churches and public buildings, to factories or offices. We undertake all levels of survey work, from conventional plans, sections and elevations to full 3D models of whole streetscapes.
Net Lettable Areas, Right of Light Surveys etc
We provide all types of real estate and planning surveys to clients’ specifications. Net Lettable Area Surveys can be carried out to the RICS Code of Measuring Practice, or to the International Property Measurement Standards (IPMS), to produce GEA, GIA or NIA values to assist rent reviews or for other purposes. 3D Right of Light Surveys can be carried out to assess the impact on light of any proposed developments.
Examples of client-driven surveys include highly detailed drawings of built-in museum display cabinets, lattice structural frame work, ornate decorative plaster ceilings, layouts of encaustic tile patterns, statues and monuments…
2D/3D CAD and Other Deliverables
While most surveys are specified in 2D plan, we can survey and produce our data in basic 3D or right up to fully rendered 3D models. From these models we can also produce fly-through animations, wire frame models and rectified photography for Verified View Montages (VVMs).
3D Laser Scanner
A 3D laser scanner can be used alongside conventional survey equipment to capture particularly detailed building information – both externally and internally.
