Digital Imaging

Monuments serve various purposes, including honouring individuals, commemorating significant events, and preserving cultural or historical heritage. Behind the scenes, surveyors play a crucial role in the preservation, restoration, and documentation of these iconic structures.

Surveybase are experts in the digital survey of historic monuments and have surveyed many important landmarks in London and across the UK.

We regularly work with architects to understand the condition of the monuments, identifying areas of deterioration, and plans for restoration. We typically deploy Total Stations, Laser Scanners to deliver a precision historic record, but now add aerial drones into the mix. Drones provide an important aerial view of large monuments, capturing high definition imaging used in photogrammetry and maintenance observation.

Our precision digital survey solutions are designed to meet the requirements of surveying historic sites. The service supports many options for report, including 2D CAD plans, 3D Revit (BIM) Models, Photogrammetry, Point Cloud and Matterport Imaging for digital twin applications.

Managing Director, David Ascott adds “we are working with conservation architects and government departments on the preservation of important monuments and historic sites, not just for conservation or restoration, but as a lasting digital record of our ancestry and culture.”

Surveybase has an extensive record in surveying iconic monuments, exemplified by landmarks like the Diana Fountain in London, Buxton Memorial Fountain, and Temperance Fountain, Bristol.
