Stunning measured building survey


The Savill Building is a visitor centre at the entrance to The Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park, Surrey, designed by Glen Howells Architects, Buro Happold and Engineers Haskins Robinson Waters.

Owned by the Crown Estate, the remarkable building has a ‘three-domed’ sinusoidal-shaped grid shell roof of two layers of interlocking larch laths on a one-metre square grid, supported on steel quadropods and a steel tubular ring-beam.

The roof structure remains exposed from the inside and is the most eye-catching feature of the building. The entrance facade is covered by an extensive green roof, which is planted with Microbiota decussata and Juniperus squamata.

The building was shortlisted for the 2007 RIBA Stirling Prize.


Spatial Dimensions were commissioned by PWP Architects on behalf of the Crown Estate to measure the building and site and produce:-

  • Building plans
  • Elevations
  • Sections
  • Topographical survey

Our survey teams, using a Leica total station and laser scanner, completed the site work in five days and the finished deliverables were sent to the client on time, ten days later.
