3D panoramic photographic data generated to provide visual information about the building envelope and existing services prior to works commencing. Anomalies in record drawings, dilapidation issues and asset items were highligthed and reported to the client.
The photographic data was also used as a supporting document when in discussion with other project stakeholders (i.e The Architect, Structural Engineer, Main Contractor and Client etc.) negating the requirement for additional site visits.
Point cloud data can be displayed in several useful formats (real colour, greyscale, intensity, elevation, and by individual scan). Each of the display modes allows point cloud data nodes to be extracted and utilised directly, providing highly visible and accurate information. The intensity image above provides greater contract between adjacent elements, improving visibility and accuracy.
Point cloud data was used to generate an architectural and structural model of the entire project, in which the mechanical services design concept was designed and co-ordinated.
Project deliverables can be quickly and accurately produced to communicate the design intent, intended services layout and equipment schedules. The model can be issued to other stakeholders for collaboration to improve accuracy and reduce errors on site.
Completed installation replicates the original design concept.
