← Back to Laser Scanning and 3D Model for Building Retrofit


In early 2015 our client purchased a commercial building with the intention of converting it into a mixed-use development. The three-story building will feature a combination of office, retail, and restaurant uses. Cannon was selected to assist with 3D scanning and modeling for this adaptive reuse project.

Cannon performed a complete 3D laser scan survey using FARO x330 Scanner and FARO’s Scene software to register the point clouds. Cannon used Autodesk Revit (building information modeling) software to create a 3D Model of the building that included the interior surface of all exterior walls on each floor, the interior floors, column supports and beams, ceilings, and stairs wells. Additional scope of work items included establishing horizontal and vertical control to register the multiple scans, on-site coordination to ensure key structural components were included in the scanning data collection as specified by the client, creating a project database listing of the individual point clouds, 360° photos, a scan region definitions exhibit, and fully featured REVIT model.
