What is Building As Is Documentation?
“As Is” – “As Built Drawings”
With the high precision mapping – mapping – imprinting work we perform; we produce construction drawings so that each individual structure or prefabrication is linked to the existing structure with millimeter accuracy.
In a Rehabilitation – Restoration – Reconstruction – Restoration or Intervention project for the Preservation and Rescue of a listed or unlisted building, or any other structure, the existing condition can be mapped with extreme accuracy and in a minimum of time with Digital Scanning of the Sites (Laser Scanning).
How the Building Survey is conducted?
How the Building Survey is conducted?
The mapping of existing buildings, both externally and internally, is carried out with Precision Topographic Measurements in combination with the use of a static Laser Scanner where all architectural, structural, mechanical and other details are mapped.
Each of the buildings is captured with a digital scanner and photographed.
The process combines dense point clouds with full photographic documentation.
An intermediate result is a point cloud, where each point has x, y, z coordinates in space. At the same time, each point contains the color information and is associated with pixels captured by a camera located inside the same instrument. Thus, essentially millions of points – pixels are captured in three dimensions in space.
The high density of points combined with the possibility of color information in each point approximates the term “virtual reality”.
The measurement tasks that are carried out:
- Precision topographic mapping with a robotic station
- One scan at least per room
- Photographic documentation of the space using the most modern photographic methods – 3D Photography
Use of building footprints
Use of building footprints
These basic drawings can be used by the design team of the project for the preparation of the Structural Design, Architectural Design at all stages of the Preliminary Design, Design and Implementation Design, Mechanical Design, Acoustic Design.
The rich deliverables will be useful for reference in design team collaboration where members of the design team may be remote from each other.
Time needed for a buinding survey
How long does it take to capture a building?
The scanning with Laser Scanner is performed within a few hours. The first information about the site available even the same day.
On the day the scanning is performed, you can use the Point Cloud and the virtual tour of the site. Find yourself inside the project and can virtually wander through you and your colleagues (no matter where you are) for a first impression. See the view as if you were there! Inside the virtual tour you can measure exactly what you want with high precision. See the project’s difficulties, risks and exactly what to ask of subcontractors.
Below are all the precision drawings we will prepare for you and the products you will choose from. As an example, for a 1000sqm building the first-floor plans will be delivered in three days from site survey and the full plans in one week. For the exact timing of the Building Mapping Project please fill in the building details here.
Cost of a building survey
How much does it cost to capture the Building?
The factors that will determine the cost are two:
the accuracy of the mapping the details necessary for the project.
To simplify the process, we suggest three cases of impressions with their respective cost categories:
Complete Drawings of the Building Floor Plans, Elevations, Elevations, Sections
In projects requiring high constructional accuracy in measurements
Rehabilitation of damaged buildings or structures with high accuracy of measurement
Restoration of Monuments, Churches, Special Buildings or Structures
Reconstruction of existing buildings
Restoration of Listed Buildings
Redesign of Unfinished Buildings or Structures or Buildings with Failure in their Construction
Intervention for the Conservation and Preservation of a Monument or Importantly Preserved Building
Checking the stability of the building and its seismic capacity
Simple plan view for use
Promotion and promotion of the building
Architectural Concept Design
Preparation of drawings suitable for the Energy Performance Certificate
What are the final deliverables?
After processing the above material, a 3D model of the site is produced, from which a complete set of two-dimensional documentation drawings of the building is created:
• Floor Plans, Elevations, Elevations, Horizontal and Vertical Sections (2D CAD Drawings)
• Orthophotographs of the floor plans
• Orthophotographs of the elevations
• Orthophotographs of Views Opened photographic views of monuments – buildings
• 3D Models / 3D Model of the Building
• Photographic Texture in the 3D Model
• Orthophotos – Expansions of every surface of the building whatever its shape
• Images of the view from each opening
• Virtual Tour application creation and editing for usability by Trimble Real Works Viewer and/or virtual reality glasses
• Color Point Cloud Point Clouds /Raw data or cleaned clouds or Photographic Pixels with 3 dimensional (x, y, z) coordinates
• Topographic renderings combining the above with the building perimeter and accompanying the building permit
• Profiling – possibility of selecting cross-sections
• 3D virtual tour of the model with VR Glasses
• Comparison of “clouds”, control of micromovements
• Geometric documentation and correlation with theoretical model
