Accurate and consistent measurements to identify usable space

Understanding the size and area of properties is important for cost purposes whether you are involved with a development, service charge, rent, sale or purchase. Independent and accurate measurement is advisable.

Malcolm Hughes Chartered Land Surveyors can provide professional experts to measure your property in accordance with the latest RICS Code of Measuring Practice and IPMS. Our teams can provide accurate and independent measurement solutions for offices, industrial, mixed use and retail (including shopping centres), using the most up-to-date technology.

With offices across the UK in England, Wales and Scotland, we have the capacity, capability and experience of surveying property portfolios UK-wide.

IPMS (International Property Measurement Standards) were introduced in 2016 and adopted by RICS in order to provide a global standard for measuring office space. At Malcolm Hughes, we now report on a dual basis when requested and will continue to do so until IPMS is fully embedded in the marketplace.

Malcolm Hughes can provide the following area measurement services:

  • Net Internal Area (NIA) and IPMS for offices.
  • Gross Internal Area (GIA).
  • Gross External Area (GEA).
  • Retail Zoning (ITZA).
  • HM Land Registry Lease Plans.
