SCOPE OF WORK
EliteCAD was contracted by Archstone Builders LLC to perform a 3D Point Cloud Laser Scan of this 600,000+ square foot, 35-story commercial office tower in Midtown Manhattan, NYC. We laser scanned each floor, registering over 1716 individual scans into one unified coordinate system. Following the scanning process, we then crafted a complete Autodesk Revit Model LOD 300 which included all existing MEP systems, from which 3 existing conditions drawings per floor were produced; a total of 105 drawings. Finally, we produced 35 individual 3D Virtual Matterport Tours, and furnished 35 additional colorized topographic diagrams.
THE CHALLENGE; COMPLETED IN 35 BUSINESS DAYS
The challenge was meeting the accelerated construction schedule.
Archstones team of licensed engineers, arcitects and technical professionals identified critical path items whose construction cycle time could be shortened. Archstone expertly deploys and leverages technology to achieve every available schedule dividend. At the West 42nd Street tower, an aggressive schedule was set to accelerate the renovation of the entire building. The 3D Existing Conditions Model that Elitecad Designs was tasked to create is the mission critical component of the planned pre-construction trade coordination process.
