As-built Documentation

Work on existing structures begins with accurate as-built documentation. Vertical Access offers a range of documentation services, from field verification of dimensions and details to the production of complete plans, sections, and elevations.

These services include:

  • 2D and 3D photogrammetry using traditional or drone-based image capture
  • AutoCAD elevations, sections and plans
  • Field verification of dimensions in difficult-to-access locations
  • Characterization of design details
  • Ductwork and drain leader schematics
  • Production of background elevations for existing conditions surveys using TPAS®.
