A GPRS Case Study

3D Scanning For Next Generation Building Modernization

3D Scanning For Next Generation Building Modernization
“People work differently in today’s world, so spaces aren’t just renovated, they are modernized. Creating an accurate digital representation of the current space helps keep the planning and design process efficient.”
Vince Palko, Marketing Director for GPRS

Highlights

THE BIG IDEA

By involving laser scanning on the front end of the project the client will pay for the laser scanning services by reduced change orders, rework, and associated delays by having all of the necessary information upfront.

PROJECT APPLICATION

Behind every successful renovation project lies detailed design plans, budget and timeline estimates, and an expert construction team. Laser scanning allows design and construction teams to understand exactly what’s in an existing space by providing millimeter-accurate as-builts.

TASK

GPRS 3D laser scanning services provide 2-4mm accurate existing conditions site documentation for efficient planning, design, and construction. Once the site was laser scanned, the GPRS Mapping & Modeling Team created a geometrically accurate 3D building information model (BIM) model of the site.

Task

GPRS 3D laser scanning services provide 2-4mm accurate existing conditions site documentation for efficient planning, design, and construction. Once the site was laser scanned, the GPRS Mapping & Modeling Team created a geometrically accurate 3D building information model (BIM) model of the site.

PROBLEM

  • Carnival Cruise Lines plans to redesign existing office workspace in the Miami, Florida headquarters.
  • The company seeks to develop a workspace that is aligned with core organizational values such as collaboration, transparency, diversity, and inclusion.
  • A strict deadline required a rapid capture of as-built information.
  • Secondary goals include improved building efficiencies and modernization of the space to meet the needs of current and future employees.

Solution

  • Laser scanning provided accurate and detailed information, plus the ability to quickly create a 3D BIM model. Manually pulling hand measurements would prove hugely inefficient in a space of this size.
  • After laser scanning the North and South Tower, GPRS produced a LOD 200 Revit model showing basic architectural features (walls, doors, windows, and ceilings) of the entire area.

Benefits

  • GPRS provided a LOD 200 Revit model that can be used along with the 3D JetStream viewer files as a means of showcasing the existing conditions to their client throughout the duration of their project.
  • By involving laser scanning on the front end of the project the client will pay for the laser scanning services by reduced change orders, rework and associated delays by having all of the necessary information upfront.
