Dollar Tree

In June of 2011, PPM received a contract from Alan T. Hendry, Architect to assist his firm in surveying all new Dollar Tree locations in California.  Working with Mr. Hendry, PPM surveyed over 60 stores in an 18 month period, producing As-Built drawings to be used by the corporate store design team.  At the time of the survey, the stores were either vacant or occupied by other tenants, so we had to work diligently to coordinate access, while still delivering finished drawings within 10 days for every single survey, anywhere in the state.  The locations were about 10,000 SF each.  Our scope of work included Floor Plans with Photo Key, RCP, Exterior Elevations, and a Site Plan.

Santa Monica Apartments

This 47 unit apartment complex on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica had been vacant for 5 years when PPM was hired to measure it in November 2012.  Our client had recently purchased the property, and needed As-Built floor plans to give to their architect.  They were also interested in verifying the actual square footage of every unit, in order to prepare rental rates and marketing documents.  There was no power at the time of the survey, so PPM's crew worked with headlamps to complete the field work in 3 days.

New Jersey Hotel

PPM surveyed this 12 story hotel in Saddle Brook, NJ, in August 2013.  The building was vacant at the time, and our client was a design firm that was hired to remodel the hotel for the new ownership group.  The project was particularly challenging because there was no power in the building, and it had been stripped down to the studs - so we had to coordinate the logistics involved with renting the necessary power and lighting equipment in order to complete the measurement.  Our team of 2 surveyors was able to complete the project in one week.  The Scope of Work included Floor Plans and RCP of floors 1-3, as well as the 12th floor.
