Laser Scan to Revit - Queens Hotel Townsville

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.

Beacon Consulting conducted over 250 laser scans over course of two days using our Faro laser scanners in tandem.  Scanning on the project took place in March 2016 with modelling on the project taking approximately four weeks to complete.  The laser scanning for the project was conducted on behalf of our Client Hames Sharley Architects who are working on the building as part of larger master planned precinct.  Final outputs were delivered to the Client in Revit 2015 format.
