Project Swallowtail

Savills instructed Lane & Frankham to undertake an onsite verification exercise on existing AutoCAD plans and then undertake a desktop measurement exercise to prepare area referencing reports on a unit by unit basis for 8 shopping centres located throughout the UK and Ireland. The units were to be measured on a Net or Gross Internal Area basis, depending on size. All units Greater than 25,000 sq ft were to be measured on a GIA basis only, units less than 25,000 sq ft were to be measured on an NIA basis only.

Existing floor plans were provided and this data was stripped back to show just structural and relevant detail.

Net or Gross Internal Area Reports, in accordance with the latest RICS Code of Measuring Practice were prepared on a unit by unit basis. Retail zoning was also provided on units less than 25,000 sq ft based on standard zoning protocols.

The centres contained an Internal property size of circa 2,580,000 sq ft distributed over the 8 Centres.

An Internal Area report was created for each of the centres, including a schedule and reference drawing for each individual unit and providing GIA or NIA and ITZA figures.
