Laser scanning complex architectural details at multiple levels
The external simplicity of the building’s appearance conceals a deceptively complex reinforced concrete frame structural design. While the multiple changes in levels and carefully arranged architectural details required expertise to measure precisely.
Using 3D HD laser scanners enabled the surveyor to prepare a single point cloud data file which helped illustrate complicated relationships between the different elements of the building.
For example, the original car park ramps converted into a creative office studio presented a complicated challenge to capture. This included the spiralling curvature of the internal and externals walls, the relationship between the original car ramp and the new internal stairs, and the offset angle of the iconic Crittal windows.
