As part of the measured survey exercise we are able to enhance school CAD drawings further by adding details of the DfE room types and room uses. In addition we can identify the appropriate Building Bulletin category for easy assessment of a rooms net included area.
Drawings can also be thematically coloured by these values as an aesthetically pleasing enhancement.
The above is designed to make the exercise of determining the planned admission numbers for a school much simpler and to accelerate the process of completing the Net capacity return.
We are also currently in the process of developing a means of automatically populating the room data section of the DfE net capacity calculation spreadsheet directly from the drawings we produce which will streamline the process even further.
