Case Study 1

Commercial property re-development project

Measured building survey and Revit modelling from laser scan data with LOD1 and LOD3 equivalent specs


Floor plans, elevations, sections and Revit models

Purpose of survey:

Architectural design, feasibility study and rights of light analysis

Key facts:

A challenging site condition:

The survey involved full measured survey for two buildings facing public highways and a site of a large footprint surrounded by tall buildings. Many of the surrounding buildings were not accessible at the time of survey. Our team managed to cover more areas than required in case of any unexpected requirements due to the complexity of the site. The survey was completed successfully by a careful site reconnaissance and planning. Strict H&S procedures were taken while gaining access to the roofs.

Multi-tasks in a tight timescale:

Our team worked extremely hard to deliver a large survey package and met the client’s deadline. A detailed and considerate teamwork strategy was set between the site surveyors (for point cloud processing), 2D CAD drafting team and 3D Revit modelling team. We ensured all the teams were fully engaged throughout the project timeline and communications were effective.

Quality assurance:

A detailed step-by-step quality check procedure was carried out in order to ensure all the products were accurate and reliable. Survey reports were generated at every step including: on-site control traverse, GPS observations, point cloud registration/cleaning/exporting, 2D drawing extraction checks and 3D Revit modelling checks. Cross examinations were carried out on all products to eliminate any errors and ensure the specs’ requirement of accuracy was met.
