Customer Requirements

We recently delivered this project to a private client, who’s family owned property required some modernisation and rejuvenation.

Both the property and the outhouses were not a standard build but rather unique.

The house had been extended using modern techniques adjoining the more traditional aspects of the property.

The project required internal and external measure of all aspects of the property, including a full topographical survey, full floorplans and full elevations.

In the past, we have worked with the clients chosen architect and are able to provide precise plans to base their designs.

Accurate plans, in the first steps, can and will save money in the design and build phase.

Work Carried Out By ZS Surveys

Jack Egget and Danny Rushworth, of ZS Surveys, conducted a full survey of the beautiful property in May 2024.

This included the internal and external 3D scanning of the property.

We also provided elevations, measured floorplans and a full topographical survey of the location.

Our team, first, conducted a topographical survey that included a tight ring traverse around the property. The survey included a tight level grid and high level of details of the external of the property, providing a highly accurate plan of the whole estate.

We later scanned the structural aspects including a full scan of the external facades and internal rooms and layout.

We utilised the Trimble x7 laser scanner, S5 total station and the R2 GPS.

The scan data was then tied into the topographical data, creating an accurate, coordinated model.

Once the model was produce, using N4ce, Realworks and CAD, we were able to extract the information and provide the data in a useable format to both the client and architect.

The End Result

We provided all the data to the client in multiple formats – a Point Cloud file, PDF and also a CAD.  These could then be used in the design of the building.

From the information, a highly accurate set of designs could be created that encompass all of the clients requirements as well as keeping the character of the building.

The accuracy of the plans will not only save the client money, but also create a stable platform for accurate designs.

Since delivering, we have spoken to the client and they have expressed their delight with the attitude, professionalism and overall output by ZS Surveys and would highly recommend us.

“Thank you so much for sending your team in to conduct the survey.

They were very considerate when working on site and have produced some professional drawings.

I’m sure that the drawings will mean much more to the architect than to me. But they look great.”
