National Trust Case Study

Encompass Surveys National Trust Case Study Image

Introduction
Having gained a reputation in the industry for providing accurate measure building surveys, we were approached by the National Trust to undertake said surveys on several of their properties including:

Ham House
Uppark House
Woolbeding Gardens
Morden Hall
Petworth House

Scope of Works
Due to the historic nature of the properties owned by the National Trust, it has become essential to accurately record measured building and elevation data to ensure the ongoing conservation and restoration works are in keeping with the original construction.

Surveys Completed
To meet the client’s specification, total stations and 3D laser scanning were utilised to accurately survey both the internal and external detail of the buildings at each property on an established control network.

In addition to the above, drones were deployed to provide roof survey data, saving the client the time, expense and inconvenience of manual inspections utilising extensive scaffold construction.

Uses
Following our surveys, examples of how our work has been of benefit can be highlighted at Ham House and Petworth House.

In the first instance, following the collapse of a section of building at Ham House, the replacement construction was an accurate representation of the original by using the data we had scanned.

In the second, at Petworth House, the design of replacement gates on existing pillars could be completed as a desk-based activity utilising the scan data from our survey.
