A critical element of the design stage of any renovation or refurbishment is to have an accurate building survey and an As-Built or Existing Conditions floor plan.

What is an As-Built / Existing Conditions floor plan?
An existing conditions floor plan is a drawing that provides all the details of a building structure. Outlining the existing conditions means the floor plan shows exactly what is currently on a property, including fit-out, base building, and services. It includes all walls, doors, windows, and columns. An existing conditions floor plan also denotes all wall types, such as brick, concrete block, plaster board, etc.
This information allows you to understand what you can or cannot change about a site, and means all floor plan users do not need to attend site, as all the information is collected and recorded on the drawing. An existing conditions floor plan can be used by people interstate or overseas, as it is a true representation of the building structure on-site.
A completed building barely ever corresponds exactly to the details of original plans, often because of unforeseen on-site complications during construction, or variations from the original plans that are decided upon later.
If inaccurate drawings are relied on during the refurbishment, costly fix-ups may have to occur.
You can rely on our level of accuracy, which has been used for over 18 years by architects, project managers, and more. We can give you exactly what you need for your project, whether it be the process of developing, altering, or designing of commercial and industrial property.
When planning new fit-outs, from fashion to food-outlet stores, these plans will give you the parameters to begin the redesign of things such as new walls, and things like kitchens and eating areas. Using an existing conditions plan for commercial fit-outs of an existing tenancy can give you information such as previous tenants, walls, doors, and glazing. This information will allow you the complete freedom in effectively utilising the space.
