DKA and DesignBase

11 April 2014

DKA is always on the lookout for opportunities to network and strengthen local connections. With this is mind, we recently invited in Bath-based surveying and architecture outfit DesignBase to give a lunchtime CPD presentation about the latest developments in 3D laser scanning. We were impressed by their capabilities and agreed that they would return to undertake a full digital survey of the interior of the Malt House as a training exercise for their surveyors.

The result – viewable through the online SCENE LT platform – is a point cloud survey, together with a full 3D photographic model. DesignBase used this data to create a Scan-to-Revit® model of the Malt House, which we will be using initially to investigate refurbishment works. Longer term we intend to develop the model to showcase our BIM capabilities.

3D surveys are definitely the future!
