Facade and Elevation Surveys

Facades and Elevations Surveying is a process of accurately measuring the elevations or sides of buildings to record all of the features such as windows, doors, parapets, roofs, columns, and other structural elements.



Benefits of a Façade and Elevation Surveys

Façade surveys are important for the following reasons:

  • They record important details of buildings that are not captured in building plans;
  • They provide scaled CAD drawings of front and sides of a building; and
  • They provide accurate structural data that saves time, money and reduce risks that could be a result of mistakes in projects

How does it work?

Facades and elevations can be recorded using a variety of surveying technologies, selected by the level of detail required and by the nature of the area being surveyed. Our surveyors use total stations, laser scanners and rectified photography to record everything from main structural detail to intricate architectural features, e.g. cornice mouldings or stained glass windows for conservation requirements. CAD drawings of facades and elevations can be produced as 2D or 3D depending on client needs.
