Carried out as part of a measured building survey, section drawings can supply additional detail to your project by showing a ‘cut-through’ view across the building.
Sections can be delivered in 2D format for all types of buildings from steel framed structures through to historic buildings.
Compiled from building data collected from laser scanners, total stations or drones, cross sections provide extra visual information in conjunction with elevations and floor plans, by showing the thickness of voids between the ceiling in the floor above and the position of the structural walls throughout the height of the building.
This detail is used for architects, planners and developers to support any modifications to the fabric of the building.
Sections can be included as part of a full integrated measured building survey when combined with elevations, floor and roof plans.
Away from measured building surveys, sections can be used to outline ground profiles (and structures) from site data taken from topographical surveys. They can also help in the production of profiles of open watercourses to aid with flood risk assessments.
