FWS Helped with Conversion of Point Cloud Rendering to Revit Models for UK-based Construction Firm
Client Profile - Building Information Modeling (BIM) Consultant
The client is based in the United Kingdom and has provided advanced surveying support to architects, construction firms and engineering companies for 30 years. Specialized services include clash detection, movement monitoring, BIM models and utility tracing.
Client Requirements and Challenges - BIM and Revit Conversion Support
The client needed support for reconstructing a textile mill. Because many original blueprints were missing, requirements included capturing point cloud data with scanners and then converting architectural designs to Revit models before the original building was demolished. The project encompassed the entire industrial building and all features such as piping structures, wiring and other MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) equipment.
The project involved this primary challenge -
Obtaining enough point cloud data to ensure accuracy of new drawings.
The Solution - By Flatworld Solutions
The Flatworld Solutions BIM and drafting specialists developed this solution -
The team included a project manager, four drafters and a BIM coordinator.
Team members communicated regularly with the client to review accuracy of point cloud data.
LOD (level of detail) 200 was used for creating the new design.
The project was completed successfully in about six weeks.
Final Results - Completed Point Cloud to Revit Conversion in 6 Weeks
This project demonstrates a common engineering and drafting scenario - missing blueprints when building renovations, restorations and reconstruction are required. Overcoming this challenge requires advanced experience in tasks such as point cloud to Revit conversion. In this case, the client was pleased with project results provided by Flatworld Solutions (FWS).
