We recently bought a Ricoh Theta S panoramic camera for taking panoramic one click site photos while doing inspections.
We think these cameras produce better record for future reference and allow us to create virtual site tours for Clients who cannot travel to remote locations.
Beacon Consulting were recently engaged to laser scan and convert to Revit the heritage listed former hotel at 12 The Strand Townsville. Built from 1902 to 1920 the hotel is constructed with english bond brickwork with rendered detailing and contains intricate facade detailing which was converted in the Revit Geometry.
Our Client, a Contractor in Papua New Guinea specialising in design and construction projects rang us on a Thursday afternoon after lunch with an urgent request for a concept design on a soccer stadium presentation to be provided to their Client the following morning at a breakfast meeting.
Always up for a challenge Andrew and I dropped what we were doing that afternoon and put together a simple precast concrete designed stadium with a steel roof structure that we thought could not only be built should the project proceed, but also provide a simple and cost effective design solution with some simple architectural elements.
