The Reality Check That Saves Time and Money

The Reality Check That Saves Time and Money

A retail site survey is a process in which the existing physical elements of a store’s interior and exterior are recorded, measured, and mapped. A site survey documents architectural and infrastructure elements, including walls, signage, equipment, displays and decor elements.

The survey information guides owners, designers, procurement managers, and construction teams as they make critical choices about changes to interior and exterior space.

In the past, site surveys were conducted in the field by surveyors taking photos and physical measurements. This manual process took time, disrupted business operations, and was prone to errors and omissions.

KRS uses specialized 3D recording technology to quickly and accurately record data for store surveys. This dramatically reduces the likelihood of costly mistakes in design and construction for our clients—making a KRS site survey an incredible value.

The 3D site survey takes the viewer on a virtual walk-through of the interior environment at any retail location. This interactive experience shows all angles of the store and allows the user to move about freely, zoom in or out, and explore all corners of the space.

At its core, each site survey is based on the project and provides the ability to count, measure, and document the store and assets. From 4K video walkthroughs to inventory of your shopping carts, KRS site surveys offer more options than only site scanning.

The Many Uses of a KRS 3D Site Survey

Pre-Construction Site Survey​

Developing plans for a construction project or an addition requires an intricate, accurate understanding of individual spaces and site conditions. A major challenge a company may encounter during multi-unit remodels is the wide variation in building footprints and interior architecture, including ceiling height, the number and orientation of windows, the length of the facade, and much more. Placement of mechanical infrastructure is another big “X” factor.

Complicating matters, blueprints rarely match as-built interiors. If multiple remodels have taken place over time to a company’s retail stores, those blueprints may be next to useless.

The site survey greatly aids in visualizing interior design concepts, especially for non-design members of your team. This facilitates smooth collaboration and faster decisions by owners, designers, procurement managers, fixture fabricators, and on-site construction teams. 

Two great reasons to use a site survey prior to construction?

  1. Prior to remodeling or renovation, a site survey provides accurate dimensions for CAD drafting.
  2. A 3D site survey provides seamless access to understand interior obstructions and other crucial, site-specific information.

Post-Completion Site Survey​

  • Following a construction project, a site survey documents the completed interior, ensuring that the work was, in fact, done to your satisfaction.
  • The 3D site survey records the interior as built, even if changes and adjustments were made during construction. This provides a crucial record for future updates.
  • A KRS site survey enables members of your organization to view the completed store at extremely low cost and with minimal impact to employees and customers.
  • Virtual walk-throughs can be easily conducted by operations, risk management, marketing, and executives.

Company-Wide Survey of Building Interiors

  • For multi-unit retailers and hospitality organizations, quarterly or annual site surveys are an important way to ensure that everyone is on the same page and on brand
  • Site surveys provide a valuable, detailed, up-to-date library of store interiors for use by merchandising teams, marketing, operations, and more.
  • A site survey can provide valuable insights into the customer shopping experience and can even help improve customer service.

Pre-Acquisition Site Surveys

Retailers or investors about to purchase multiple units or an entire chain have many questions about the condition of the stores they are acquiring. KRS can scan and deliver a 3D walkthrough of each location to help the buyers clearly understand what they are acquiring.
