Vicinity Centres in Cranbourne Park, Victoria, had a total of 50 storage rooms/cages that required survey plans. Ten of these were available for immediate leasing so the plans were considered urgent. The first ten were required on the same day the quote was approved. This was because each day the rooms and cages remained empty, was another day the client would lose money.
Once the budget was approved, we immediately headed out and surveyed the ten most urgent rooms. As each storage cage was measured the survey team would then email their field notes and data to the office. From there the drafting team would take over, quickly drawing the survey plans, accurately calculating the areas, and issuing the drawings to the client, all while the next unit was being measured on-site!
The use of a live surveying/drafting strategy to meet target deadlines made this job an innovative one.
By 3pm the same day, we were able to submit the required areas back to the client via email with total confidence in the numbers. The client was very happy with our responsiveness and was able to execute their leasing strategy without disruption.
