The Archidata surveyors collectively have over 130 years of surveying experience. This ranges from the most basic measured building surveys for loft extensions and lease plans, to the most complicated BIM models of listed buildings, barns, churches, chapels, schools, colleges and commercial buildings.

Perhaps one of our most successful and demanding projects to date was the measuring and setting out of 2,500 different shapes of artificial turf, real grass, poppy fields, plough earth fields and crop gardens for Danny Boyle’s London 2012 opening ceremony, the green and pleasant land.

Our projects have taken us as far south as the Rotterdam and as far north as Glasgow. As far east as Amsterdam and as far west as Antigua in the West Indies, but we are equally happy to work closer to home in Sussex, Surrey, Essex, Kent, Devon, Hampshire, Hants, Berkshire and London and we are perfectly placed between the A24 and A27 corridors with easy access to airports and major motorways.

Our topographical land and measured building survey team are the first choice for many of the leading Architects, developers, building contractors & private property owners in the South East of England.

  • Measured Building Surveys
  • Laser Scanning and 3D Modelling
  • Survey for BIM
  • Topographic Surveys
