Laser Scanning & Measured Survey
Whether a survey is required to create a record, help inform a programme of works or to accompany a report, a digital metric survey can provide an accurate account of any building or structure.
All plans produced are undertaken using data captured by Laser Scanner, a Total Station or survey grade GPS, and can be output in a number of different formats. The advantages of using this equipment quickly become apparent, allowing accurate measurements of floor plans, heights and elevations.
With accurate plans and data, surveys can be used to produce archaeologically interpreted plans, or can be sent for use by engineers and architects to inform calculations or design.
Former Wheatsheaf, High Wycombe
In 2019, the Buckinghamshire Historic Building Trust commissioned ArchaeoDomus to undertake a detailed archaeological survey of the former inn. The aims of the drawing to highlight and interpret the timber frame building hidden within later phases of alteration, which could then be provided to their architect for the preparation of proposed plans for its conservation and reuse.
Ffynone Mansion, Pembrokeshire
Ffynone Mansion is often cited as the finest house designed by the renowned late 18th-century architect, John Nash. Completed in 1799, the house was very much Georgian in plan, with classical detailing to the exterior and internal finished. In 1830 a neo-classical portico was added to the rear elevation to create a more open and elegant entrance to the house. Architect Inigo Thomas was commissioned in 1904 to remodel the house in an Italian Palazzo style. Fortunately much of the Nash interiors were spared the treatment given to the outside, which today survive as the best of his interior to survive in Wales.
