HISTORY CAPTURED

Through a New Lens

Historical buildings are quite easily the best application for our 3D laser scanning and Revit modeling capabilities.  You know this already, old buildings have seen a lot over the years and tend to bare few typical elements throughout.  Particularly in an adaptive re-use case, intense 3D laser scanning services capture all finite to large scale anomalies, which can then be translated to relevant and useful information in 2D or 3D AutoCAD or Revit.

Our team is adept at decoding these particularly complex historical buildings.  It takes way more than an expensive 3D laser scanner and a Revit license to extract and deliver useful information from a century old building.  We use Architectural IQ to make hundreds of decisions throughout the drafting and modeling process, all intent on delivering the most meaningful information in the right form for a diverse consultant team.

The Value of a Digital 3D Record

When we laser scan a building, the data is kept indefinitely and can be resurrected.  Two years after we delivered pre and post demolition Revit and AutoCAD as-built documentation for a historic hotel project in Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA), the Developer needed to recreate important historical details damaged during the demolition phase.  With one phone call, our team identified the key areas that required documentation and fully scoped the project.  The pre-demolition scan data perfectly preserved all key areas with incredible detail.  Our resulting as-built documentation enabled the Architect to achieve results otherwise impossible:

How We Do It

We will work with you to understand your project requirements and provide a custom fit laser scanning and as-built documentation solution.  Once we are green lighted, the most experienced technicians in the business are mobilized and execute the field work as expeditiously as possible. 

We deploy the latest in Reality Capture solutions, primarily through 3D laser scanning, to capture environments from a single room to buildings that encompass entire city blocks, all with immense accuracy and detail.  Through our understanding of where you are trying to go, we work with you to determine what level of detail and accuracy you require from the onset.

The result of 3D scanning is a single consolidated set of points called a Point Cloud.  This point cloud typically contains far more data and information than is needed and can be tough for designers and engineer to interpret on their own.  This is where the Spatial Acuity difference lies.  We take it one step further and convert it into highly usable and purpose built CAD or Revit as-built documentation.
