Project: Commercial Office Space Fit-out 399 Park Avenue, 39th Floor, New York, NY
Scope: Existing Conditions Laser Scanning, Documentation, Modeling & Slab Flatness
Size: 40,000 Square Feet
Client: Boston Properties
ROI: Accurate Background Drawings & Model, Expedited Engineering & Communications, No Mistakes.
Elite CAD Designs was contracted by Boston Properties to point cloud laser scan and model the existing conditions of the ___ floor at 399 Park Avenue. Boston Properties is one of New York’s premier mechanical contracting companies.
Scope of Work:
Elites’ scope of work included point cloud laser scanning generation of a 3D Revit model and subsequent 2D AutoCAD drawings that represented the existing architectural, structural and mechanical systems that remained in the space after demolition had been completed. Elite CAD Designs ultimately produced a complete set of 2D AutoCAD drawings that included an accurate floor plan, reflected ceiling plans, elevation drawings, section drawings and a colorized floor flatness diagram.
The explore-able walkthroughs run from any smartphone, tablet or pc; our modelers can navigate through the space as if they were actually on site. The walkthrough accelerates our entire process helping us to turn out a better product in less time.
Customer & Team Interface
We like to provide our customers with the richest data set we can and deliverables in the shortest amount of time possible. We are able to hand off a 3D virtual tour explore-able walkthrough of the worksite within 24 hours of our visit. These new explore-able walkthroughs let us interact with our clients in a very new way and that’s a value.
The ability to walk someone through a space and experience the same immersive 3D virtual tour heightens the level of communication and understanding between remote teams. Not only can you share an explore-able walkthrough with anyone but you can share direct links to specific locations within the site, so that the walkthrough opens up on a predetermined location. This is an invaluable tool for calling out punch-list items and communicating RFI’s.
Return on Investment (ROI): Reduced Risk
Elite CAD Designs uses technology to work smarter, communicate concisely and complete work on time and under budget. On this project we were able to turn over a complete set of 2D drawings, a 3D model, a 3D virtual tour, a point cloud laser scan and a slab flatness and levelness diagram within 72 hours of having visited the worksite.
The return on investment for our clients can be measured, more work completed in less time, effective communication and precision measurement means better engineering and no costly construction conflicts with the existing conditions.
