"Existing Conditions" vs. "land surveying"

Expert building documentation vs. a secondary offering

When you hire Existing Conditions, our work typically consists of delivering 3D laser scanning data and building information models. 3D laser scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures spatial data on the physical environment using a line of laser light. Three-dimensional laser scanners create “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object.

In comparison, land surveying is the technique and profession of determining the three-dimensional terrestrial positions of points and the distances and angles between them. A land surveying professional is called a land surveyor. The coordinates that a land surveyor notes are often used to establish maps and boundaries for ownership, the surface location of subsurface features, or other purposes required by law, such as property sales.

The planning and execution of many forms of construction require land surveying. It is also used in transport, communications, mapping, and the definition of legal boundaries for land ownership.

Existing Conditions does not offer land surveying services, but we would be happy to refer you to a qualified professional in our network.
