A (chronic) pain point
An internal medicine practice near Birmingham, Alabama, US commissioned a state-of-the-art 3,500 sq ft office. The architect designed the building in 2D CAD software, and the drawings were used extensively by multiple trades throughout the building process.
So far so good, but here’s the problem: The client needed more information than the 2D drawings could offer. They needed a colorized, accurate 3D data set, which would reflect all architectural and structural elements, as well as the floor plan as it was actually built. They needed this data set for a wide variety of high-value tasks, including arranging on-going facilities maintenance and operations, and planning future additions and renovations.
On top of that, the client had one more request. They needed the 3D data set to be colorized and include hi-definition color photos crisp enough to use in their marketing materials.
