LOOOM captured a total of 57 individual scans with registration, delivering a high quality 8.9 GB point cloud comprising billions of points.
Together with over 5,000 panoramic HD images, it was now possible to completely digitise the premises, creating an accurate digital copy of all five floors of the brewery building. This includes as-built floor plans and sections created with the help of the high-quality point cloud.
NavVis IndoorViewer also gave the building owners remote access to the digital assets – completely independent of location – using any standard web browser on laptop, tablet or phone.
“Because the building is so old, some of its walls are still extremely thick, often more than one metre,” adds Lindert. “The question therefore arises as to whether it is more cost-effective to renovate and rebuild the building, but leave the basic structure intact, or demolish it completely.”
The owners still need to make that decision but, as Lindert concludes, with highly-detailed construction documentation and the information readily available to all stakeholders, “Nothing stands in the way of a successful revitalization for the site.”
