Building Surveys

When building plans are missing or outdated, laser scanning provides a perfect solution for fast, detailed and accurate building inventory surveys.


Reliable building surveys play a vital role in the planning of any reconstruction or renovation project.

Often, plans for historic or landmarked buildings are not available. If plans or drawings are available they often no longer reflect the actual conditions and new building surveys may be required.
