Our specialist survey and scanning teams bring decades of experience to the table, helping property custodians record, model and protect our nation’s heritage.



Using state of the art technology, we help protect, preserve and model the nation’s historic buildings, reducing costs, improving efficiency and maximising convenience for generations to come.

Whilst most commonly used for construction and engineering purposes, as part our commitment to innovation we’ve re-purposed our cutting edge 3D laser scanning equipment, adapting our working practice to deliver a range of services, indispensable to the heritage sector.

Whilst a more comprehensive list of our heritage services can be found on the left of this page, a brief summary would include…

  • 3D modelling and recording of structures and objects (artwork, furniture and so on) for insurance records
