PWH is able to offer you, as the Client, a full range of services with our experienced team of in-house surveyors. The team have over twenty five years of experience in surveying and recording properties, structures and features to produce reports and plans that will accompany statutory planning applications, conservation management plans, and tenders for restoration and consolidation works.
The on-site recording is carried out with the use of traditional tape measures and the backing of modern lasers and a total station. This enables us to offer you a full range of services in-house which reduces time delays on projects and ensures a certainty on the quality level of the work that is undertaken. The on-site surveys include the full measurement and recording of buildings, structures and features on a site to enable the production of a CAD drawing in a digital format. The recording of the buildings and features will be fully detailed and photographed to enable scaled drawings to be produced in accordance with English Heritage guidance on the measuring and recording of buildings and structures. The drawings, photographs and recording information will all be able to assist with the submission of any Statutory consents.
The production of a full topographical survey can also be undertaken by our experienced team, using our own total station. We are able to survey your site or grounds and produce a digital survey drawing referenced back to Ordinance datum. This will record all of the significant features on site including buildings, footpaths, rivers and trees and is invaluable when considering existing and future uses of a site.
The understanding of building techniques is also a specific requirement for any of our surveyors to enable us to help you to understand your building. The team are experienced in the use of cob, thatch, stone walling and the use and application of lime on traditional buildings. This enables us to be able to specify the correct use of materials, diagnose defects due to the use of inappropriate materials and professionally manage the use of traditional materials and techniques on site.
