Project description:

The College clock, housed within the iconic King Edward’s Gate—more commonly known as the clock tower—is situated in one of Trinity’s oldest structures. Trinity College stands out in Cambridge with its distinctive architecture, notably featuring the Great Court, acclaimed as the largest enclosed courtyard in Europe.

Engaging the expertise of Red Laser Scanning, a laser scanner survey was commissioned to meticulously document the students’ accommodation within this historic edifice, producing architectural CAD drawings at a scale of 1:50. The location, situated in the heart of Cambridge’s historical centre, presented unique challenges as it is a highly touristic and bustling area. In response, we opted for the Faro scanner, chosen for its compact size, enabling our surveyors to seamlessly scan amidst the vibrant streets frequented by large groups of tourists.

The data collected through the laser scanner survey, including the point cloud generated, undergoes rigorous processing in CAD. This step is crucial in crafting detailed drawings of the external elevations, ensuring precise documentation of the historical facades. Additionally, the survey facilitates the creation of floor plans, which play a pivotal role in the redesign of the internal layout of this revered structure.

By navigating the intricacies of this historical site with cutting-edge technology, we not only capture the essence of Trinity’s architectural heritage but also contribute to the thoughtful preservation and modernization of its internal spaces.

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!
