Paradise Courtyard Point Cloud in colour - University of Chichester

Project description:

Founded in 1839 by William Otter, the Bishop of Chichester, the campus boasts a rich history that spans 180 years. The University proudly maintains its historical essence through the preservation of original structures, which were architecturally crafted in a neo-Tudor style by J. Butler.

One such historically significant area, Paradise Court, required a meticulous restoration to safeguard and revitalise the external stonework of the original buildings. Recognising the importance of preserving this heritage, our Heritage Survey Department was commissioned to conduct a thorough mapping and analysis of the condition of each stone on the historic facades.

To create precise 2D drawings capturing the intricate details of every individual stone, our team employed a laser scanner survey complemented by a high-resolution photo campaign. By combining the detailed drawings at a scale of 1:20 with High-Resolution Orthophotos, we achieved an accurate representation of the exposed stonework, textured with a rectified photo collage. This comprehensive dataset serves as a crucial tool in identifying the stone types, materials used in the construction, and assessing their state of conservation or damage.

The analysis is further enhanced by highlighting areas of decay on the 2D drawings through coloured hatches, as per a key list naming various types of decay. This meticulous process ensures that every single stone is thoroughly examined, providing invaluable insights into the preservation needs of our historic facades.

We hired Red Laser Scanning when we were redeveloping the property. The time frame for job completion was within a week and they did an excellent job. The pricing was clear, detailed, and paid for exactly what I needed.

I have never seen a laser scanning service more efficient and easy-going such as Red Laser Scanning. Scanned was made the same week I received the quote and the drawings were here 3 days later. Very good company who deliver quick but quality results.

We hired red laser for our building site and needed a measured survey. The team were really professional and friendly. I have hired a few companies in the past for a measured survey and found these guys not only did an excellent job but we also got our plans delivered back to us within days. Thanks!

We have asked Red Laser Scanning to do our floor plans and point cloud for our planning application. Very professional service and Dimitri was very friendly when he came to do the survey. Also competitive pricing. Would recommend!

Very good service! I was looking for a company which can do measured survey for my house in order to obtain planning permission. My architect quoted me twice more for existing plans. I came across Red Laser Scanning and booked the survey for the next day and received drawings three days after. Highly recommended!
