The Kennedy Space Center – Cape Canaveral, Florida 3D BIM Model to Upgrade Launch Complex 39B ‍ TASK: The Kennedy Space Center used GPRS 3D laser scanning services during recent upgrades to Launch Complex 39B. Our client was installing piping from the mechanical room under the launch pad up to the surface where they terminate, rerouting overhead piping through the mechanical room, as well as, removing and installing new equipment. GPRS delivered accurate and reliable as built data for the Kennedy Space Center to plan upgrades and reroute piping. ‍ CHALLENGE: The client needed fast and accurate as built documentation of the project areas so they could effectively plan upgrades and piping routes and note any clash points. Understanding exactly where the mechanical room equipment was located below the launch pad surface was crucial to this project and difficult to determine using a method other than 3D laser scanning. ‍ SOLUTION: The GPRS Mapping & Modeling Team delivered an LOD 300 3D BIM model of the structural and MEP details. Accurate information helped the client plan for the equipment and piping and determine the vertical penetration points. This saved time and money by prefabricating the piping offsite and minimizing rework from misaligned pipes and equipment.

Intelligently Visualizing the Built World for Rudolph Libbe Hospital Addition

Complete subsurface mapping and millimeter-accurate aboveground measurements for a top-down, 360° visualization of a hospital wing and parking area to support a hospital expansion.
The addition is designed to occupy an existing parking lot for hospital employees, patients, and visitors. GPRS performed utility locating, video pipe inspection, and 3D laser scanning to create a comprehensive map and 3D model of the medical center’s infrastructure, both above and below ground.
TASK: Complete subsurface mapping and millimeter-accurate aboveground measurements for a top-down, 360° visualization of a hospital wing and parking area to support a hospital expansion. PROJECT APPLICATION: Rudolph Libbe, a longtime GPRS client and partner, oversaw the construction on the expansion of a northwest Ohio medical center. The addition is designed to occupy an existing parking lot for hospital employees, patients, and visitors. GPRS performed utility locating, video pipe inspection, and 3D laser scanning to create a comprehensive map and 3D model of the medical center’s infrastructure, both above and below ground. PROBLEM SOLUTION BENEFITS n Rudolph Libbe received millimeteraccurate laser scan data and an integrated 3D BIM model to precisely design and plan the building addition during preconstruction. n Non-destructive utility-locate methods reduced the number of unknown utilities and obstructions for the design and construction teams. n GPRS’ as builts allowed Rudolph Libbe to plan the new foundation and identify areas where further investigation would be warranted to prevent design and utility clashes. n With comprehensive field services provided by GPRS, Rudolph Libbe saved time and money on change orders, and eliminated subsurface damage during the construction process. With parts of the medical center’s campus dating back to the mid- 1800s, inaccurate as built data and unknown subsurface obstructions could jeopardize construction planning. n It was imperative that the proposed locations of the structural foundation and planned utilities coordinated with the existing conditions. n Rudolph Libbe desired 3D as builts to plan and complete the building addition, such as structural and utility tie-in information. n Traditional exploration methods typically include “soft” excavation methods over the entire building footprint. This option is expensive, time consuming, and requires tremendous coordination. GPRS utilized ground penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic (EM) locating to map the hospital’s utilities. n Video pipe inspection (VPI) recorded the precise location and condition of the facility’s sewer lines, detailed in a NASSCO-certified report. n 3D laser scanning documented as built site data and utility maps to create 2D CAD drawings and a 3D BIM model for virtual design and construction. n GPRS participated in coordination meetings with construction and design team members. NO ONE HAS GONE TO THIS EXTENT TO MAP A SITE ABOVE AND BELOW GROUND. IT WAS IMPERATIVE THAT RUDOLPH LIBBE HAD ACCURATE AS BUILT SITE DATA AND UTILITY MAPS WITH CRITICAL STRUCTURAL AND UTILITY TIE-IN INFORMATION.” JAIME ALTHAUSER | FIELD SUPPORT DIRECTOR, GPRS

GPRS Utility Locate and 3D Laser Scan for a Gas Station

The data GPRS collects can be used to develop the utility portion of a conceptual site model (CSM) to visualize migration routes, communicate with stakeholders, make informed remediation decisions, and protect the team on site and the environment.
A gas station requested utility locate and as built data to document the existing conditions for site upgrades and to develop an emergency response plan for potential leaks. Accurate 2D utility locate maps, a 3D BIM model, and a conceptual site model (CSM) were created of the gas station, underground storage tank system, and surrounding utilities.
A Michigan gas station requested utility locate and as built data to document the existing conditions for site upgrades and to develop an emergency response plan for potential leaks.
Task: A gas station requested utility locate and as built data to document the existing conditions for site upgrades and to develop an emergency response plan for potential leaks. Accurate 2D utility locate maps, a 3D BIM model, and a conceptual site model (CSM) were created of the gas station, underground storage tank system, and surrounding utilities. Problem: The gas station lacked as built site information required for compliance with environmental regulations, essential to plan for site upgrades, and necessary to take prompt corrective action in the case of an emergency. The client did not have an accurate conceptual site model (CSM) to understand and interpret contaminant fate and transport in the subsurface. Solution: GPRS Project Managers used state-of-the art equipment to perform ground penetrating radar (GPR), electromagnetic (EM) locating, video pipe inspection (VPI), leak detection, 3D laser scanning, and drone photogrammetry services at the gas station. The GPRS Mapping & Modeling Team delivered accurate as built and utility location data in point cloud, 2D maps, 3D BIM model formats, to help eliminate guesswork from decision making, and prevent time-consuming and dangerous mistakes and the costs associated with them. The gas station received access to millimeter-accurate information to efficiently plan work and drill safely. Locating underground storage tanks, including their depths, can help the station owner detect unusual fluctuations in fuel levels and assess any potential leak faster. Detailed site maps can help to communicate the location of a leak, the most likely paths and extent of horizontal and vertical delineation, and to plan assessment and mitigation efforts. Benefits: Infrastructure location and mapping are vital before conducting any construction or subsurface work like soil boring, or coring concrete to drop vapor pins – to eliminate clashes and utility strikes and keep workers and the community safe. Comprehensive site data is essential for the early detection and management of petroleum leaks at a gas station, to help minimize environmental damage and ensure the safety of employees and the surrounding community. GPRS as built maps and models provide accurate information to avoid hitting a UST or system component, and to avoid a utility strike when sampling soil. The GPRS SiteMap® mobile app securely stores utility data, geolocated and layered, and securely accessible for the station stakeholders to share with those who may need it. The data GPRS collects can also be used to develop the utility portion of a conceptual site model (CSM) to visualize migration routes, communicate with stakeholders, make informed remediation decisions, and protect the team on site and the environment.
