By taking into consideration, thebuilding measurement and analysis need to be conducted accurately to get great results at the end.1.1
In order of achieving several objectives that have been planned for the building ahead of thesurvey works start its operation, this report was produced. To make it a success, aims as aguidance to ensure all the works planned will be accomplished within the given period with thelimitations that will arise throughout the survey works. The aim for this project is to gain as muchinformation about Aula Timur located at the Bandung Institute of Technology, Bandung, Indonesiawith earlier overview that the building was historical structure with uniquely design by a Dutchmenarchitect on 1918.

The group objective is to produce a building condition report that will cover the buildingmeasurement and analysis, measured drawings, defect investigations and recommendation for thecase study, Aula Timur, Bandung Institute of Technology, Bandung, Indonesia. Other than that, thegroup would like to gain as much information and hands on measuring the building with thetechnical equipment given as well as define all the deficiency that takes place on the building. Moreimportant, the method or technique on collecting data will be assessing to get the accurateinformation for the case study.This is as a way in ensuring each individual are well known with all sorts of informationregarding the work need to be done before the arrival in Bandung, Indonesia. In order to achieve agood report, the group has also form an objective that is compromise few criteria on each of thegroup members that is to be fully responsibility on their task given, to improve communication skillon gaining the information from the community surround as well as among the group members andalso to compete each other in the group to reach as much data needed.
This kind of task need to be done properly according to the specific method that’s beentaught during the lecture and some extra refeences for building measurement and analysis fromexternal building surveyor firms.
The scope of the building condition survey can be cover both exterior and interior or even anelement alone. For this task, the work that had been planned is going to covered part of thesubjects from the Building Surveying program such as Building Defect and Analysis, ConstructionEngineering, Building Services, Building Practice, Environmental Physics, Building Maintenanceand also Structure. The scope of building condition report was also to enclose all of the followingprinciples:
inspection methodology;

Inaccessible loft of cultural centre and a room between Main Hall and the Cultural Centrearea.
Permission denied to measuring the internal part of the building due to a day event held atthe building.
The differentiate figure by laser distance meter and teodolite during the calculation of building height.
Lack of information about building’s material as it was a major different from Malaysia’sconstruction material and some of the material was imported from outside Indonesia.
Lack of information about the size of beams and joints inside the building as it can’t be reachwithout suitable equipment to get to higher distance.
 The summary of this chapter is to generate the aim of the survey worksthroughout several objectives within the scope of work given. This aim will be majordepend on the group objectives that have been decided before the work started,despite of right methodology and preparation to overcome all the limitations at thesite. An earlier planning will determine either the survey works will completed in therange of time given. Though the work will be difficult due to lack of information and thelimitations expected to be come forward on the site, any additional information fromthe lecturers and building’s owner will help a lot to the group in completing the reportbefore the due date.
The survey works must be also within in the Building Surveying program subject to makethe information gain in this process can be useful in the class later on. Furthermore, this practicalwill be a view for the students for their next career after they’re graduated. So, it’s important tomake sure that the objective of this works successfully achieved.
