For accurate surveys of services and related materials, I make a record format for each building component, with the service specification and the unit normally used as measurement criteria, as a minimum. It's easy to add worksheet functions as new report columns for these reports. There are also pre-formatted reports for this, in the VW archives, with a lot of information that might be useful.
