Transforming Data into Development

As we make our way through Lockdown 2.0 and many companies adjust once again to remote working, we wanted to highlight that a vacant workplace can provide you with the opportunity to capture the data you need, with minimal disruption to employees.

TruMetric use the latest technology and a combination of both traditional and digital methods to undertake a variety of surveys for a range of buildings, from offices to warehouses and listed buildings to development sites.


Preparation = Productivity

Undertaking a Measured Building Survey whilst your premises are unoccupied will allow you to utilise this period, which may be otherwise unproductive, in a valuable way.

If the first lockdown has taught us anything, it’s that preparation is key. This time around, we are a little more educated on what to expect and what to prepare for. Similarly, a Measured Building Survey allows you to prepare for future redevelopments, extensions and safety measures.

At TruMetric, we take time to research and prepare before our surveys take place, ensuring we have an awareness of the full site layout before arriving. This allows us to navigate any obstacles and ensure we use the most suitable equipment to deliver the most accurate service.


When would you need a Measured Building Survey?

How is a Measured Building Survey performed?

TruMetric uses a systematic approach to undertake an accurate survey, using a variety of tools. From a trusty traditional tape measure to its electronic counterpart in the form of a laser scanner, we can take measurements within an accuracy of as little as 1-2mm when necessary.

Our equipment uses sensors to calculate precise distances for a range of settings, from tall structures to heritage sites and new construction or re-developments.


What are the benefits of a Measured Building Survey?

When re-developing or building a new structure, even the slightest mistake in calculation can have costly impacts. An accurate measured building survey ensures that a project can run efficiently, saving both time and money in potential rectifications which would result in delays or rejections in relation to planning and costly adjustments to deigns and plans.

Starting with an accurate reference point ensures future adaptations, refurbishments and redevelopments are easier planned, allowing for exact quantities of materials to be purchased and gives better visibility to renovators on existing on-site areas such as power supplies.

TruMetric’s calculated approach to Measured Building Surveys ensures that accuracy is our main priority. Gaining accurate and detailed data is critical to avoid costly design errors, disputes and delays.
