Mobile CAD Surveying and Sitemaster
National Institute of Standards and Technology study NIST CGR 04-867, estimates the cost of inadequate
interoperability in the U.S. capital facilities industry to be $15.8 billion
per year, with building owners bearing the majority of those costs. How much of
the $15.8 billion did you pay last year?

With Commercial office space commanding a
premium, building owners and managers can increase revenues by finding more
gross rentable square footage space with Mobile CAD Surveying BOMA Plans. Per
ANSI Standards, a resurvey to BOMA 1996 Standards typically yields a 2-8%
increase in usable and rentable areas, which more than offsets the direct costs
of a re-survey. Tenant discrepancies with occupancy costs based on square
footage are mitigated, and building information for lease plans and leasehold
improvements are current and easily accessible.
Mobile CAD Surveying BOMA Plans are client-friendly and serve as an excellent
addition to the sales and marketing toolkit, or space verifications of leased
property. Special considerations in the wording of measurements relative to
existing tenant contracts are easily accommodated. Items clearly marked on the
BOMA floor plan include:
Walls, windows and doors.
All rooms are clearly labelled and
Floor and building common areas, and
Usable and rentable areas.
Symbols showing key building component such
as plumbing fixtures, kitchen appliances, heating fixtures, elevators, water
Simplicity and Speed, Detailed AutoCAD®-Compatible Floor Plans are Created In
Real-Time Using Handheld Lasers
Bluetooth® wireless technology and Leica DISTO™ or Hilti PD38 portable lasers
to take precise measurements within a tolerance of +/-0.1 inch over 650 feet.
simply pointing the laser, measurements are transferred instantly to create
architecturally-rich floor plans, complete with "intelligent" walls,
windows, doors, openings, areas, symbols and extended inspection details such
as digital photos are added to the drawings in real-time on tablet PCs.
Details included not only simple dimensions but also produced accurate
representations of angled, curved and tapered walls.
The Results: Increased Accuracy and Boosts
to Productivity by 250%
using leading-edge as-built technologies, twice as many people would have had
to manually log all measurements using tape measures to produce hand-drawn
sketches. Back at the office, multiple teams of AutoCAD drafting technicians
would then have had to interpret the data to create digital floor plans which
is very time consuming.
Summary: Mobile CAD Surveying and
Sitemaster Building Delivers Measurable Results
2-3 fold increase in productivity.
More than 50% reduction in labour costs.
Reduction of original project timelines
Increase accuracy of results to 100%.
Deployed in hours.
Fully compatible digital floor plan files

say the output is 100% accurate in half the time and at half the cost we’re pretty close. Productivity in simple terms is increased by 100% - the work is
delivered in one day – therefore the profit is increased by 100%. Mobile
technology has actually been proven to increase productivity by up to 1000%
when compared to traditional design methods. And that’s not mentioning the less
tangible increase in service level to the customer. A Return on Investment can be seen in some cases on day 1, but we say
on average within 14-15 working days, including the cost of the hardware,
software and training.
survey team = ½ the cost - 1 man
travel = 1 visit and no return
drawing distribution = 1 upload to web portal, many users
Sitemaster Building - Advantages
Up to 10 times more
productive than the traditional pen and paper method.
