To support a ‘rights of light’ analysis Terrain Surveys are able to provide highly accurate and fit for purpose survey information. Normally delivered as a 3D survey model, this has been produced from 3D laser scanned data which has been rapidly captured on site.

We have a wealth of experience delivering 3D models and 2D CAD survey drawings to specifications as set out in the RICS ‘Rights of Light’ Professional Guidance 2nd Edition. On previous projects we have delivered survey projects as simple massing models, more detailed 3D models or as 2D CAD surveys in the form of floor plans and elevations.

    Frequently asked questions:

    What is a rights of light measured survey?

    A measured survey for rights of light is needed to enable specialists to analyse the impact on existing buildings from a proposed development. The survey information is normally delivered as either a set of 2D CAD floor plans and elevations or as a 3D model file. The survey will then be used in specialised rights of light software to carry out the analysis.

    How do I obtain a quotation for a rights of light measured survey?

    A quotation can be sought by contacting us with the details of your site with as much information as you have. This can be the site address and post code with a description of the site extents, but any existing plan information you can supply is always useful. One of our experienced measured building surveyors will then provide a proposal detailing our fee, survey scope, timescales and the deliverables.
