Choosing the Right Surveyor for Your Measured Building Survey Needs

Are inaccurate building measurements derailing your project timelines and making it more difficult to stay within budget? Is your project suffering from poor communication and a lack of accountability from your surveyor? Are you facing unexpected costs that were not disclosed upfront?

If this sounds familiar, Survey2Plan has a solution. Being a leader in the measured building surveying industry in the UK, we thoroughly understand that the right surveyor makes all the difference when precise data is required.

In this article, our experts walk you through the process of selecting the right measured building surveyor for your projects. So, stay with us!

Understanding Measured Building Surveys

Surveyors use measured building surveys, also known as measurement surveys, to get accurate and detailed representations of buildings. An in-depth and top-quality measured survey captures all structural and architectural elements of any given structure. These surveys find their usage in a wide array of applications, including renovations, restorations, extensions, and new builds. The data extracted through these surveys become the foundation for the planning, design, and construction phases. Thus, we can say it without an iota of doubt that measured surveys document every aspect of the building with precision (if carried out professionally using cutting-edge tools and software).

The Importance of Accuracy and Reliability

Inaccurate surveys lead to significant issues down the line. Discrepancies such as incorrect floor plans and misaligned structural elements will result in project cost overruns while also making it extremely difficult to adhere to strict deadlines. What does it translate into? Accuracy and reliability are cornerstones of any measured building survey.

Therefore, when selecting a surveyor, it’s crucial to prioritize those who demonstrate a track record of delivering precise and dependable results. 

Below are key considerations when choosing a surveyor:

Key Considerations When Choosing a Surveyor

Choosing the right surveyor involves more than just comparing prices. Here are some key factors to consider:

Experience and Expertise

There’s no substitute for experience in the surveying industry. An experienced surveyor will have encountered a wide array of challenges and scenarios in his surveying career and has equipped himself to handle any challenge that may arise during the project. Therefore, we recommend you look for a team that has a proven track record of success in measurement surveys. 

Here at Survey2Plan, we have decades of experience as we have worked on projects of all sizes. Furthermore, our team comes from a diverse background and diverse teams are way better at problem solving and making decisions.

Technology and Tools

Experience is invaluable, but when accompanied by cutting-edge tools and software, it can make your project time and cost-efficient. When selecting a measured building surveyor in the UK, you must ensure that they have latest equipment, including 3D laser scanners, and are experts in UK Building Information Modelling or BIM. These two factors greatly increase the accuracy and efficiency of your surveys.

Ensure that your surveyor utilizes the latest tools and software to provide the best possible results.

Dedicated Account Manager

Communication is key to ensure that all your requirements are timely conveyed to the surveyor and to keep you updated about all the developments. Therefore, explore the website to find out if your surveyor provides you with a dedicated account manager (because if you ask, they are obviously going to reply in yes out of fear of losing a project or client).

A dedicated account manager will become an extension of your team and shield your interests. He/she will become a single point of contact who understands your project’s unique needs and coordinate all aspects of the survey process. All of this will translate into clear communication, timely updates, and a smoother overall experience.
