Measure all walls to get the overall dimension.

Measure each smaller section of each wall and check that they tally up correctly (e.g. above 1650 + 1200 + 1650 = 4500mm.

Measure the floor to ceiling height.

Measure the space beneath the windows, the height of each window and the space from the top of each window to the ceiling. Check that those 3 dimensions add up to the overall ceiling height.

Measure the positions of all the obstacles such as boilers, stop cock, water pipes, gas pipes etc.
