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.
