Case Study: 3D Laser Scanning and Modeling for a Fitness Center

Location: Houston, Texas

Task: TruePoint was selected to perform 3D laser scanning services for a two-level fitness center and office space in Houston, Texas. The targets of data acquisition were the architectural and structural details, mechanical rooms and equipment, parapet walls, stairs, columns, beams, walls, ceiling, window openings, door openings, floors, roof and exterior façade. Over 100,000 square feet of existing conditions was laser scanned. The client planned to remodel the building and add an outdoor pool on top of the existing parking structure.

Challenge: Drawings existed, but were inaccurate as the space had been updated throughout the years. The client had an occupied office space and highly sensitive area and requested that TruePoint laser scan this area during the night to avoid disruption to the facility operations.

Solutions: Using a Leica laser scanner, TruePoint’s professional scan technician captured the existing conditions of the building. The technician worked two nights to avoid interrupting the office space and scanned the sensitive area at a safe distance. 3D laser scanning and modeling provided the client accurate data to design and expedite their renovation project, eliminate error and reduce change orders.

Deliverable: TruePoint’s team of in-house engineers delivered Intensity Map Point Cloud files, TruViews, and a LOD 200 Revit Model for the client.

Added Value: 3D scanning was a better solution than traditional surveying methods for this job as it provided much greater detailed measurements. 3D modeling provides a permanent 3D representation of the site and links information between architects, engineers and construction professionals. TruePoint has expertise of delivering models of different levels of development to aid in documentation, design, 3D visualization, estimations, fabrication, construction sequence, facilities management, and more.
