The PPM As-Built Multi-Site Survey Process
A NATIONWIDE AS-BUILT PARTNER WITH A BULLETPROOF PLAN FOR MULTI-LOCATION PROGRAMS
Ensuring accuracy, speed, and service on a larger scale
Renovations across multiple locations require careful planning and a well-developed process. At PPM, we bring a team of professionals who ensure your success through a carefully designed Multi-Site As-Built Survey Process. We make sure your program’s architects, designers, and contractors can begin renovations, upgrades, and re-merchandising with As-Built plans they can trust. Worry-Free, every time.
When working on Multi-Site programs, we take a strategic approach to completing a few locations to begin what we call a Pilot Program. Our pilot program typically includes three to five locations, which gives us, and our clients, enough information and feedback to make sure we are delivering exactly what our client’s need, including the drafting specifications and standards, the scope of work, and scheduling protocols for all projects. Here’s a look into our carefully crafted Multi-Site process that ensures your project begins and ends with communication and accuracy, on time, and on budget, every time.
1. GATHER PROGRAM DETAILS
The first step in any Multi-Site As-Built survey program is to fully gather and understand your objectives, As-Built scope, number of locations, timeline, and any other important details we should know. Your dedicated project manager works closely with you and your team to stay organized and communicate your project each step of the way. He/she will also be available for any questions you may have.
2. CREATE PROGRAM DOCUMENTS
After we fully understand your needs, we create and confirm the written scope of work, checklists, CAD template, and other project deliverable guidelines. This step ensures each program location is delivered to your exact specifications.
3. ASSEMBLE SURVEY TEAM
Based on the program requirements, the team will include your dedicated program manager, surveyors, drafters, Quality Assurance staff, and executive support. Team members are carefully paired with your project based on their expertise in your needs.
4. PILOT PROGRAM
Up to 5 pilot locations are surveyed, drafted, and delivered. Communication and feedback are gathered from the client to confirm any final revisions to the scope details and deliverable preferences. Pilot locations allow us to take our time on the first few and get detailed feedback from our clients, ensuring all program details are answered and confirmed before ramping up to full capacity, at which time we’re able to survey and draft up to 50 locations per week.
5. FINAL REVISIONS AND TRAINING
Based on the results of the pilot surveys, scope documents and templates are updated as needed, and the entire team is trained on program standards and processes. This ensures all locations are drafted and delivered with the same file types and plan specifications making it easier for your architects, designers, and contractors to move between locations.
6. SURVEY PROGRAM LIVE
This is where things really get exciting! All remaining locations are surveyed, drafted, quality checked, and delivered to you in the confirmed format, within the agreed upon time frame. We maintain regular communication to ensure you are always aware of the program status. This phase might last a few months or multiple years – it’s all based our client’s needs. We have worked on programs where we surveyed up to 50 locations each week.
7. POST-PROGRAM SUPPORT
Just because we’ve delivered your plans doesn’t mean we are done supporting you. Our team is always available to discuss any questions or additional needs throughout the lifecycle of the project. Although we are the very first step in your project, we are with you the whole way.

Worry-Free Accuracy, Worry-Free Timeliness, and Worry-Free Communication are the three pillars of our Worry-Free Promise that we stand behind for every client.
