GeoData was commissioned to undertake a Laser Scanning and measured building survey of the 163 bedroom hotel in Cork City centre.
The hotel consisted of 6 storeys above ground with 2 basement levels, internally the hotel was in shell and core state.
Our remit was to provide a full 3D Revit model of the entire structure to include all the structural elements such as columns, beams, lift core staircases.
This included service opes to provide the design team with an accurate as-built model to enable the construction of an additional floor to the hotel and also to assist in the design of internal layout and to avoid clashes of MEP services.
The laser scanning survey was carried out with a Trimble TX8 laser scanner both internally and externally, somewhere around 600 scans were carried out in total.
Control for the laser scanning survey was established using a Trimble S6 robotic total station with a closed loop traverse by recording fixed Laser Scanning targets around the building.
