A building survey could be carried out for numerous reasons; it might be ordered by a potential buyer to investigate the structural integrity of the building, or perhaps renovations are planned and the owner wishes to obtain some accurate data, and by using laser technology, it is possible to accurately measure every aspect of a structure.
If you are looking for a building survey quote in Brighton, for example, a Google search will bring up a list of companies that are qualified to survey structures, and once they are aware of your needs, they can arrange for a qualified surveyor to carry out the survey. If you have special requests, the surveyor can incorporate them into the service, ensuring you get all the information you need.
Using a state-of-the-art laser tool, it is possible to create a point cloud that allows you to create a perfect model of a proposed structure, and if you want very accurate dimensions of a structure, laser equipment will provide the quickest method of doing so.
Main Aspects of the Survey
The building survey would include the following:
- Inspecting for damp.
- Checking for hazardous material (asbestos).
- Checking for ground subsidence.
- Internal & external measurements of every room.
Infringing on the Rights of Others
When planning to build an extension, it is essential that your proposed structure does not infringe on other’s rights. Blocking out natural light, for example, is not permitted and a survey will determine whether or not your extension infringes any laws.
