Our latest Reality Capture and Scan to BIM Project

Here's one of our latest projects finished last week by our Cairns Laser Scanning Team and our Brisbane and BIM modelling team.

Project Overview

Hames Sharley Architects (Brisbane Office)

Date Completed:
September 2014

Scope of Works:
Reality Capture Laser Scanning of existing heritage listed building with as-built Revit modelling for future renovation and alteration works to develop the building into an office building.

Equipment Used:
Faro Focus 3D 120 Scanner, Mobile Boom Lift, Revit 2014, Faro Scene 5.3

Level of Detail:
LOD 200

Autodesk Revit 2014 model in .RVT format of existing façade, floors, walls roofs, ceilings, doors windows and beams.

In ceiling scanning and scanning of plenums and roof spaces.

Project Execution

Beacon were engaged to provide HDR Reality capture laser scanning and Revit scan to BIM Modelling for the existing Townsville West State School.

The aim of the project was to provide an as-built Revit Model of the existing building to high tolerances and accuracy for use by Hames Sharley Architects. Hames Sharley will use our as built Revit model as the basis for their detailed planning and design of the proposed future use of the building for their client.

Beacon conducted the on-site laser scanning over two days using our Faro Focus 3D laser scanner for which we completed around 89 No. individual scans.

Scans were also taken of the roof structure from a mobile crane hired for this purpose. Laser scans were registered and verified for accuracy in our Cairns office using Faro Scene 5.3 and delivered to our Brisbane office for modelling within Revit 2014.

Modelling on this project took approximately two weeks.

Here is a photograph of the building taken on-site.

Here are some images of the Revit Models created from the point cloud files.
