Indigo Surveys provides a wide variety of surveys to our clients throughout the UK and our measured surveys are conducted with the utmost professionalism, in order to deliver to our consistent high standards, no matter the client, project size or location.

Our appointed personnel are trained, experienced and insured for a wide variety of specialist geomatic services which we provide throughout the UK, including high-quality measured surveys. We use the latest equipment and technologies to ensure the delivery of high-quality and accurately drawn plans with the speed and efficiency you require. We are adaptive to each project and experienced in using recognised survey techniques and methodologies to deliver accurate drawings.


What is a Measured Survey?

So, you might be wondering, what is a measured survey? A measured survey is an undertaking that involves the taking of exact measurements of buildings, structures and sites in order to produce very accurate data that can then be used to represent the project on a reduced scale.

We have worked with many clients in moving beyond the initial question of what is a measured survey and finding an in-depth range of detail that allowed them to find their ideal option. Each project has its own precise specifications to work with, with an agreed level of detail put together prior to measured surveys taking place. This agreement will include the scale required, the delivery times and measured survey cost.

The data that is initially collected during the survey is used to provide the foundation of your report information, which is then the basis of all future planning phases, as well as being the base from which all development and design plans are formulated. Using modern and sophisticated equipment to undertake measured surveys is important, as accuracy is imperative to any project where this type of survey is necessary.


Measured Surveys for a Range of Clients

We regularly provide geomatic services to landowners, developers, construction companies, and architects, planning consultants, project managers, engineers and other planning professionals. A measured survey is now deemed a vital part of any project plans and development, providing the accurate detail that portrays the present plot of land, the landscape and the potential future look of the area.

Speak to us today if you want to find out more about our measured survey cost levels. We can offer a flexible range of options to allow you to find a measured survey cost that suits your budget and survey needs.

As such, we are well versed in the requirements for measured surveys and we have worked with a wide variety of clients, each with a different set of very specific requirements, deadlines, budgets and other aspects for us to consider. With all of this in mind, the team at Indigo Surveys remain committed to delivering practical and innovative services, with a measured survey cost that provides a cost-effective solution, no matter the specific nature of each measured survey.


Topographical Surveys

As a baseline survey to depict a site, we tailor all measured surveys to the specific project needs and can either provide a detailed specification or work to yours. Our service is flexible in this way, as we understand well that every single client is different to the next and each project provides its own problems to solve and has its own character. We can quote from as little as a red line Ordnance Survey boundary plan, Land Registry plan or an aerial photograph.

We use AutoCAD to produce detailed plans of the built and natural environment relative to land co-ordinates, an existing datum or OS grid. We include information such as levels, contours, site features, GPS and cross-sections. As with all of our projects, we are adaptable to each client request and can deliver our completed drawing files in .pdf, .dwg and/or hard copy formats.


Building Surveys

If you are planning internal building remodelling, alterations, an extension or need to replicate existing design detail, we can provide accurate plans of the architectural and structural aspects of a building with the level of detail required for the project.

Whether it is internal floor plans, external building elevations, building cross-sections, or street scene elevations, our adaptable approach enables each client request to be specifically met with exacting quality. Delivering accurate measured surveys to your project allows you to be as detailed as possible when it comes to planning and designing the development at hand. This is vital as a way of ensuring all processes eventually run smoothly, to budget and within often strict timeframes.


Underground utility trace

We can either produce a topographical survey drawing, or alternatively, use your supplied land survey plan. This acts as a base layer whereby we can survey and map the existing utilities and underground utility services atop. By utilising electromagnetic and Ground Penetrating Radar systems (GPR) we can dramatically increase the level of accuracy and volume of services, which can be traced.

We also offer the option to integrate utility record search data for a full land-utility mapping service presented as detailed and accurate .pdf and .dwg format plan(s) using AutoCAD. Our technological equipment and team of experienced consultants allow us to match your expectations, no matter the location, scenario or project plan. We believe our approach to hard work and dedication to every client helps us to deliver a high level of quality on a consistent basis.

The team at Indigo Surveys is highly committed to continue our quest to deliver highly practical, quality and reliable project solutions, utilising innovative techniques and methods wherever possible to ensure that a high level of standards and service is delivered on a consistent basis to all of our clients. We undertake projects where our clients require measured surveys and always deliver a process that is cost-effective and has a positive impact on a project, whilst adhering to all relevant legislation and policy.

We have worked with clients within many different sectors and industries, many of whom came to us with the initial query of what is a measured survey and who went on to find their perfect survey option.

“I got a phone call on the day I enquired about your services. It was very efficient and Andrew explained exactly how things would unfold. The arrangement had to be made via my estate agents as I was in the process of purchasing a property. Indigo Surveys agreed to liaise with my estate agent which made life much easier for me. Although a tree survey is a costly exercise, Indigo were out of 4 companies I contacted, the cheapest and most efficient. All arrangements were clearly outlined to me with dates and times, no let downs, and no changing of appointments.”

“Visu Verum have retained Indigo Surveys to undertake measured surveys and tree services for various projects over the last 5 years and have always found the price, quality and customer service to be excellent. Andrew Turnbull is exceptionally helpful, easy to contact and always responds to queries in a timely manner.”

“I have worked with Indigo on many school projects. Many ran at the same time and had very short pre-construction programmes. Indigo were proactive and able to meet the challenging programmes, which enabled us to meet all submission dates for approval. We were kept aware of all ecology/arboricultural issues from the outset.”
