As-Built Surveys For Medical Offices, Clinics and Hospitals
A medical building is one of the most challenging environments for an As-Built survey. Healthcare providers, patients and their loved ones are constantly moving around.

PPM understands the unique challenges that a medical As-Built Survey provides. Our surveying process is as unobtrusive and discreet as possible – respecting all parties in what can be a difficult and emotional environment. At the same time, we make sure that we get our job done right. An accurate, high-quality As-Built survey is the first step in a medical building renovation which will ultimately serve to improve the patient experience and outcomes. We think that’s pretty cool.
