    About heritage and historical surveys

    Heritage and historical buildings are some of the most sensitive structures to survey because of their age and condition. Our heritage and historical survey services have allowed us to work with some of the most valuable Heritage Architecture in the UK and Europe.

    Building pathology inspection

    Every project and development on a listed building or a listed urban area needs highly detailed and especially accurate approach. We offer building pathology services that help identify defects, decays and other fragilities through non-intrusive methods and techniques.

    Listed building Survey

    Delivering specialist measured building surveys to Grade I and Grade II listed buildings. providing an in-depth knowledge of survey techniques when it comes to such complex projects. Due to special architectural or historic interest and additional legal protection, listed building survey requires a specialist approach to deliver accurate and detailed data.

    Our methods, equipment and processes

    Our specialised heritage survey team produces accurate documentation with a scientific approach. We use the latest 3D laser scanning technology for surveying such as laser scanners, total stations, GPS, drone and high-resolution photo cameras. Our measured surveying techniques allows our heritage surveying experts to survey even the most complex decorative apparatuses and building.

    Our deliverables

    Our historic building surveys collect complete point cloud data to obtain information non-intrusively and accurately of the historical and heritage site. We produce detailed 2D CAD drawings at scales such as 1:20 / 1:10, CAD and Revit 3D models to analyse the fragile structure and orthophoto for graphical support to carry out damage and decay analysis for building pathology purposes.

    As a part of heritage survey we can survey and inspect different historical features and elements:

    • Wall textures and stone works
    • Irregularity of the masonry
    • Mosaics tiles
    • Historic features of decorated floors, ceilings and elevations
    • Fireplaces
    • Wooden architecture

    We hired red laser for our building site and needed a measured survey. The team were really professional and friendly. I have hired a few companies in the past for a measured survey and found these guys not only did an excellent job but we also got our plans delivered back to us within days. Thanks!

    Very good service! I was looking for a company which can do measured survey for my house in order to obtain planning permission. My architect quoted me twice more for existing plans. I came across Red Laser Scanning and booked the survey for the next day and received drawings three days after. Highly recommended!

    Heritage & Historical Surveys FAQ

    Heritage surveys are conducted to document structures and conditions of historical features for buildings such as listed building, churches, museums, and homes. It is a non-intrusive method of surveying, delivered to create detailed and reliable as built CAD drawings, 3D models and historical reports.

    A heritage building survey allows us to understand the original project and the construction techniques that produced it. Often, the existing drawings of Historic buildings are missing, partial or inaccurate and dated. Therefore, it is necessary to provide updated documentation for planning and renovation purposes.

    A conservation surveyor is a professional that offers expert advice on application and legislative requirements for heritage and listed buildings, recommend conservation plans, and assess a building based on current levels of heritage protection.

    The type of survey that a listed building will require depends on the grade of that property. For instance, if you’re a Grade II listed building, you would require a Level 3 Building Survey Report.

    Building pathology is the holistic approach to studying the structure and understanding of the building. A historic building survey allows the collection of data for the documentation of building defects and the solution of remedial action required to proceed with the project’s renovation.

    Your listed building survey cost will depend on factors such as the location of the property and the details needed for documenting as built drawings, 3D models or orthophoto. The complexity of the structure, the scale of the site and the level of detail needed will determine the cost of your listed building survey. If you wish to know exactly how much your building survey would cost, get in touch with us today.
