Residential Asbuilt FAQ
What kind of residential services are provided?
Prime Edge Asbuilt Services provides full line of residential
services designed to assist homeowners, real estate brokers, residential
builders and Architects. A homeowner either personally, or through a local Architect
hires Prime Edge to obtain existing dimensional data within the
structure and a complete set of the asbuilt drawings. The need for residential asbuilt drawings
is driven by a provision set by the local Planning and Building Departments that requires the submission of a complete set of
Architectural plans for most remodeling and addition projects.
What are residential asbuilts used for?
Residential Asbuilts are used for three primary purposes.
1. Asbuilt drawings assist a design professional in their preparation
of the proposed construction documents. To ensure seamless collaboration
with your Architect, Prime Edge Asbuilt Services uses American
Institute of Architects drafting standards.
2. Asbuilt drawings are required when seeking project approval for a remodel or addition
from your local Building or Planning Agency, as the reviewer will
need to reference asbuilt drawings with the proposed plans.
3. Asbuilt documentation
is an accurate representation of existing conditions. Many conditions which have
the potential for causing construction claims can are discovered
by Prime Edge during the site verification process, thus saving
our clients from dealing with unexpected change orders.
What kind of residential structures do you perform asbuilts for?
Through the course of business we have performed asbuilt drawings
for single family residences, multi-family residences, apartment complexes and condominiums.
At Prime Edge we understand that privacy is a critical concern
for performing asbuilts in people's homes. We work
with the owners and the tenants in order to minimize the intrusion
factor and perform all data collection with a high level of respect
to the tenant and their property.
What technology is used when doing residential data collection?
AsbuiltEdge Technology is efficient within similar
space configurations such as offices, cubicles and other areas
with similar geometrical properties. Most residential asbuilts
are performed using a standard laser point-to-point measurement
device along with the digital protractor (or miter finder).
