Measured Building Survey

We were engaged to undertake a Measured Building Survey of a remote country cottage within a good-sized garden. The building is Grade II listed and it was important to record the many original features that were still in place

JOMA Architecture

In order to carry out the work, a Leica TS12 Total Station and Leica BLK 360 Scanner were used. In order to establish initial control and real-world coordinates, a Leica GX1230 GG GNSS Receiver was also used to accurately pinpoint locations placed around the site.

The TS12 Total Station was used to accurately pin-point target locations on and within the building. The BLK360 was then moved through the house creating a “point cloud” 3D model. This was then processed in Leica and Autodesk software to create the plans, sections and elevations. The TS12 was also used to survey the garden, plotting both hard and soft features as well as the building footprint. These were married together with the point cloud output to create the final drawings.
