Measured Building Surveys
Other detail that can be shown includes:
A basic elevation will just show a block outline of the building including doors, windows, walls, ridge and eaves lines and chimneys. This can be enhanced to include individual window frames, brickwork and mouldings, signs, pipes and cables where required.
Building elevations are measured using either reflectorless total stations or laser scanners.
Sections are drawn from the floor plans we have already produced. The cross sections will normally only show the building detail on the section line although we can also show the information behind the section line (a sectional elevation) if required.
External Roof Plans
If roof access is available and a safe system of work can be set up, then a full roof survey can be carried out. This will include the position of the parapet wall and guard rail, drainage, chimneys, roof lights, lift shafts, plant and air conditioning units.
Reflected Ceiling Plans
This is a drawing of the ceiling as seen looking up from the floor. It will show beams, lights, roof lights and changes in ceiling heights.
