Case Study: 3D Laser Scanning a Hospital Exterior

Location: Jacksonville, Florida

Task: TruePoint performed 3D laser scanning services for the exterior section of a hospital where a new pavilion will be installed. The point cloud data collected onsite was processed and provided to the client.

Challenge: The architects and engineers over this project needed to know the precise measurements and details of the existing building footprint as well as the overhead utilities in the area.

Solutions: Using the survey-grade P-20 Leica laser scanner, TruePoint provided the client the precise measurements of the building exterior and location of the overhead utilities. Using 3D laser scanning will provide the client with accurate façade measurements to increase the speed of designing the pavilion. 3d laser scanning the overhead utilities saves the client potential damage to existing utilities during the construction process.

Deliverable: The final registered point cloud was delivered to the client in Autodesk Recap (.rcs) format via secure file transfer. TruePoint also provided a version of the point cloud overlaid on the client’s existing Revit model to the client.

Added Value: The client also requested the location and measurements of an electrical “doghouse” positioned on the lower level building rooftop. TruePoint was able to collect scan data of the doghouse and include that with the final deliverable to the client.
