Although made up of a simple construction over a steel frame, the internals of building where heavily congested with plant  and pipe work.


Using a Faro Focus 3D laser scanner 40 laser scans were carried out around the external foot print of the building and internally.


As the focus is so portable this was all done by a one man team. In the past data capture of this size would have involved a team of surveyors and taken weeks.


An external topographical surface was also generated around the exterior of the building from the point cloud. This was created by placing a grid of points on top of the point cloud and extruding them up accordingly in Revit.
