FLOOR PLANS UK
Energy performance Direct also provides marketing floor plans to help visualise the plan of a property. Floor plans are available for both commercial and domestic properties and a valuable tool when attracting potential buyers or tenants. An electronic measurement device is used to survey the property and create a floor plan with both metric and imperial room sizes. The average property can take approximately an hour to survey and will require access to every part of the building. Plans are sent in PDF format however other formats are available on request.
Why not sketch your own floor plan and send it to us to draw up using CAD software. We will send you the PDF and Jpeg and the CAD file once complete. Send us an email for a quote with an idea of number of separate rooms or garden spaces (exclude cupboards and corridors from room/garden space counts)
You will need:
- Paper (A4 or A3 graph paper is best)
- Pens and Pencils. Start in pencil so you can erase any mistakes as you go.
- Laser measure and or tape measure (you may need an extra pair of hands with a tape measure only)
- Camera or scanner to send the image to us by email
- Have each floor on a separate page. Divide floors into to sections and draw on separate pages if need be.
- Start in the front left room of the building and bottom left of the page and work your way round each room adding the measurements as you go or even draw the spaces fist and add measurements in later.

- At each window or door opening measure the wall thickness and make a note next to each opening width in brackets.
