Facade / Elevation Building Surveys
Murphy Surveys utilise the latest equipment and technologies to produce highly accurate Facade / Elevation Surveys.
Our expert staff determine the most suitable methodology to meet the specific needs of the client, and in order to deliver the most efficient and cost-effective survey achievable.
Elevations are typically surveyed using reflectorless Total Station and handheld PC’s with specialised software. Use of handheld computers enables drawing fast and accurately in the field.
A high level of detail is captured with 3D Laser Scanning, and this is advantageous in surveying complex or detailed structures.
Rectified photography can be used to record building facades where a conventional survey proves impractical. Rectified Photography is particularly useful for architectural conservation or archaeological record.
- Capture structural detail that is not adequately portrayed in floor plans and sections, saving time and money
- Non-invasive survey methods
- Survey can be completed without direct physical access from potentially hazardous sites to reduce on-site risk
- Elevation details such as apex, eves can easily be measured by reflector-less total stations
- 3D Models and Visualisation of exterior of building
- To show Contiguous Elevations
- For Conservation, Heritage, Historical records
- Design/Conservation purposes
