Understanding the Importance of the Existing Conditions Scan to produce your As-Built Drawings

In the dynamic world of construction and design, the accuracy of information is paramount. As an experienced architectural designer and drafter, I specialize in creating detailed "As-Built Drawings of Existing Conditions," an essential service for interior designers, builders, and homeowners alike. These drawings are meticulously scanned on site and then crafted as CAD representations of existing structures, providing a precise snapshot of your building as it stands today. They serve as a critical tool for renovation, refurbishment, or expansion projects, ensuring that all parties work with the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Why As-Built Drawings are Indispensable:

For Interior Designers: They offer a clear understanding of the existing spatial dynamics, providing accurate measurements for crucial cabinetry design and placement, allowing for more informed and creative design decisions and a navigable online 3D tool to share with your clients and builders to communicate your renovation ideas about the existing property.

For Builders: These drawings provide reliable baseline calculations of existing take-off areas for flooring, tiled space, drywall areas, allowing for accurate upfront calculations of the material requirements to aid in producing faster job estimates with less margin for error, ensuring that construction plans align perfectly with with your original bids.

For Homeowners: They serve as a valuable record of your property's existing state, aiding in future planning and decision-making with all of your selected vendors. Producing an as-built early on in your planning process provides a base tool for you to be able to work with remote designers, get quotes from contractors, and communicate your remodeling ideas with your spouse, your investors, your designers, and keep construction contractors on the same page during the renovation process.

An As-Built Drawing layer helps designers communicate renovation ideas visually with property owners, investors, and contractors.

Understanding Our Pricing Structure: Tailored to Your Unique Project
Every project carries its own set of characteristics and challenges, influencing how we approach and price our services. For example, the demands of measuring and modeling a Gothic cathedral vastly differ from those required for as-built drawings of an empty warehouse. Even within similar structures, like two warehouses of comparable size, the client's end goal - be it leasing the property or undertaking an extensive renovation - significantly shapes our approach. Our dedicated team is committed to helping you define an appropriate budget that aligns with your specific project needs.

Key Factors Influencing Our Pricing:

  • Location: The geographic setting of your project.
  • Square Footage: The size of the building or space.
  • Building Access and Occupancy: Ease of access and whether the space is currently occupied.
  • Project Schedule and Delivery Speed: The timeline for completion and urgency of delivery.
  • Days Required On-Site: The duration of our physical presence at the project site.
  • Types of Drawings Needed: The variety of drawings required for your project.
  • Level of Detail Required: The intricacy of details needed in the drawings.
  • Complexity of Interior Spaces and Exterior Facade: The architectural complexity we need to capture.
  • Number of Recommended Scanning Personnel: The manpower necessary for efficient scanning.
  • Tools Required to Properly Measure the Space: The equipment needed to ensure accurate measurements.
  • Other Client Requirements: Specific demands like overnight or weekend scanning.
