Retail Measured Survey on Kingsland High Street, London
Following client brief on a Tuesday lunchtime, DMP were fast at responding and attended a vacant lock up shop with basement in Kingsland High Street, London on Thursday morning.
The client required 2D AutoCAD drawings of the existing accommodation including elevations, sections and shared landlord areas for their prospective tenant who is looking to undertake a fit-out for a national fried chicken fast food chain.
At DMP we are able to undertake accurate measured surveys of all building types from a lease plan for a 1 bedroom flat to a large multi let office block.
We take instructions from individuals and commercial clients across Kent, Sussex and South East London.
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.
