Scan to BIM of Heritage Federal Building
MaRS BIM provided Scan to BIM services for National Historic David W. Dyer Federal Building. Located at 300 Northeast 1st Avenue in Miami, Florida. Built in 1931 of limestone, it is the largest such structure in South Florida. The building was listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
The recent fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris has stressed the importance of the digitization of heritage sites. Fortunately, the cathedral was laser-scanned by Professor Andrew Tallon in 2015, and the combination of BIM and 3D laser scanning offers hope in the arduous task of restoring the landmark.
Scan to BIM process, a laser scanner is used to capture an accurate 3D scan of the real world conditions on a project. The scan data is then imported into a 3D modeling environment to create either accurate as-built models or to inform the design with the real world conditions.
Heritage buildings usually have complex (non-parametric) geometries that turn their digitization through conventional methods in inaccurate and time-consuming processes.
BIM emphasizes the importance of the historical condition, fabric information, and if you can get that right or as near to right as you can, then it means that you’ve got the basis for doing a more detailed analysis on the building.
MaRSBIM is capable of incorporating both qualitative and quantitative information about a built asset to represent physical and functional characteristics, it can provide simulations of the appearance, development and performance of an asset. Intangible characteristics, such as heritage values and significance, can be integrated into the 3D model in a structured and consistent way, which allows easy information extraction and the production of deliverables.
