Measured Building Survey

Measurement and production of architectural floor plans, elevation and sectional drawings of existing buildings and structures. 3D scanning is the standard method of measurement. It captures a highly accurate data set which is reflected in the end user drawings.

Z+F Imager 5010 measuring a hotel roof – Ullswater

A laser line is emitted repeatedly up to a million times per second as the scanner rotates in both axis. This records the 3-dimensional position of the surfaces within its sight.

A single scan Point Cloud

Chains of scans are linked / registered together and geolocated using external targets measured with a Total Station.

Registered data set in Z+F LaserControl software

The registered point cloud can be coloured with panoramic photography taken from the scans positions and matching the image pixels to the survey points.

Autodesk Recap Colour Point Cloud – Lancaster

The point cloud is imported into Autodesk Revit with FARO As-built as reference data to build a digital 3D model. A Building Information Model, BIM.

Autodesk Revit 3D Model – Manchester

From the model 2-dimensional drawings are exported to Autodesk Autocad.

Elevation – Lancaster

Complex footprints are accurately plotted.

Floor Plan – Kirkby Lonsdale

Sections can be generated throughout the model.
