Council Block Measured Surveys

NRT Building Services Group, (NRT) appointed Technics to carry out measured building surveys for sites in the London Borough of Merton, covering Mitcham, Morden, Colliers Wood, Raynes Park, and Wimbledon, and the Croydon area.

Technics undertook measured building surveys to provide the client with an external footprint of the building’s communal areas used by council tenants, staff, maintenance workers and visitors. This included lobbies, corridors and plant rooms, as well as blocks of flats and individual properties used by council tenants.

Measured Survey EquipmentThe results of the surveys enabled NRT to see the full floor to ceiling heights and plan improvement works to public spaces, on site, with new lighting or the replacement and repair of existing lighting.


Enabling a clear understanding of the sites allowed contractors to accurately install the correct quantity of fitting and for accurate usage of energy consumption, therefore helping the client reduce their carbon foot print for building performance. The drawings will also aid the client in asset managing each individual block in the future.


The plans have also been used by SCI Health and Safety, who appointed by NRT to carry out FRAs and accurate exit signage and evacuation plans in accordance with BS 5499 Pt4:2000 Health and Safety 1996 – Safety Signs & Regulations for installation at each site to aid in event of an emergency for residents or people who are unfamiliar with the building.

Not only this, they will also support NRT’s lateral works (resupplying electrical services to each property) that are due to be undertaken as part of upgrade works for the blocks surveyed and enable them to get an understanding of the material quantities and installation routes needed.

A measured building survey is a true, accurate plan of a building and can be used for a variety of purposes. They are produced for many purposes, including major refurbishment, space planning, lease plans and structural monitoring. The plans can be used for any future works that may be required for other services to use for more accurate design and installation methods.

Since this project Technics has undertaken 94 projects in total for NRT.
