Survey Systems was recently contracted to survey a lift shaft in the Metropolitan Police Force’s neo-classical conservationally important new HQ Building in Westminster.
Our client intended to install new glazed walls around the lift shaft, recently cut through 10 floors, and required a verticality survey and multiple cross sections in order to provide dimensions at crucial pinch-points.
Survey Systems carried out a full laser scan to create a comprehensive high-resolution PointCloud of the lift shaft over all 10 floors. From this we were able to ‘slice’ through the pointcloud at various locations to draw accurate and fully detailed cross sections, floor plans and reflected ceiling plans in CAD.
The completeness of the pointcloud even allowed the client to change their minds about section locations and also to add additional ones where required.
