Understanding Measured Surveys

A measured survey is one of the first steps in launching a loft conversion or home extension project.

This procedure involves our team of professional surveyors visiting your property to accurately assess your home, analyse usable space and take measurements. We’ll also take a comprehensive set of photographs to pass on to our design team.

We’ll use our findings to produce designs for your proposed development, which we’ll discuss with you. Depending on the project, drawings may include floor plans, sections, site plans, elevations, and roof plans.



First, allow Design Team to introduce ourselves!


Home Visit

At the survey appointment, our professional surveyor will meticulously measure your space and photograph the layout to document the relevant space.


Transformation into Existing Drawings

The measurements are relayed to your dedicated design team, who'll convert data into detailed architectural drawings.

With your survey in hand, our designers can now assess your home accurately with reference to precise measurements.

This data allows them to determine the feasibility of different options, planning routes, site feasibility, and other variables.


Conceptual Discussion

Here, the design team will listen to specific ideas and visions and look to implement them in the first round of conceptual drawings.

Each project is different – Design Team tailors the process to your unique property, space and ideas.

We’ve completed a huge range of projects, ranging from compact loft conversions to elaborate wraparound extensions. Check out our portfolio for more information about past projects.
