Site survey notes from a Georgian home in Bristol
Whenever we begin a new architecture project, we always meet with the client first to discuss their design ideas and ambitions. The next step would be to conduct a site survey. Pictured above is the outcome from a site survey of a Georgian house in Bristol, thought to be approximately 250 years old. During a site survey, we take measurements across the entire building and landscape which allows us to model the existing site in 3D. The 3D model is used throughout the entirety of a project and allows us to quickly formulate design proposals which we can share with the client to view in their own time in the comfort of their own home.
All the necessary drawings such as floor plans, elevations, sections, details, are taken from the model which we use for planning applications and building regulation drawings. As a design progresses, we can very quickly compare the existing site to the size of the proposed development which can help with working to budgets and constraints of the site.
