Laser scan of Fisherman's Memorial in Grimsby

As part of plans to revitalise a historic part of Grimsby, our surveying team completed a laser scan of a memorial statue in St James’ Square for input into a public realm proposal. The statue, created by sculptor Trevor Harries, was unveiled in 2005 to commemorate Grimsby’s brave fisherman who were lost at sea.

North East Lincolnshire Council approached CADS with a request for the quick turn-around of a Revit® model of the statue.

The team laser scanned the structure and within 2 days produced a 3D Revit® model that could be used to show the memorial in its proposed new location within the Square.

Work on the renovation project started in Autumn 2019 and will include relocating the statue to a higher plinth to allow gatherings around it for the annual memorial services.
