Often times we provide building measurements off of CAD files without ever measuring the constructed building in person. This can save time and money, but at the sacrifice of exercising the maximum due diligence. For clients who want to be able to ensure they have taken every reasonable step to ensure accurate area measurements, we always recommend field auditing of the building.
Like when a CPA audit’s accounting books. With a field audit service from Solid Tech, we send a metrologist (an expert in measurement) out to compare and document the accuracy of existing drawings to ensure maximum accuracy of the area calculations. Our building metrologist will utilize tablet computers loaded with Revit and AutoCAD linked to a Bluetooth laser measuring device that wirelessly transfers measurements to the software as we work allowing for quick and accurate measurements with minimal impact to the work environment.
