When an award-winning practice was commissioned by the South Australian Government to design the redevelopment of Adelaide’s Her Majesty’s Theatre, the architect contracted Realserve to 3D scan the theatre and its surrounding streetscape.
The theatre, which was originally opened in 1913, holds significant cultural history and as an integral part of the design process, existing conditions documentation was required. The data provided was utilised by the Building Information Modelling (BIM) team and other contractors in the design and build stages of the redevelopment project.
To avoid interrupting any performances or rehearsals, the entire building and its intricate details were captured in as short a time as possible. Field work was carried out in less than two days, with one team 3D scanning the building and another surveying to determine the property’s boundaries.
To meet scheduled timelines, data collection was fast tracked by using multiple 3D scanners. Our experienced 3D scanning technicians started at the top of the historical building on Level 3, working as a team to scan down and throughout the theatre before working around the outside and finishing with capturing the opulent front façade.
The client received a coloured point cloud data set, which included a boundary identification survey and a mesh of the streetscape.
Realserve were proud to immortalise this historic theatre, and offer our expertise (post scan delivery) to assist with optimising the point cloud’s utilisation. At Realserve, we are committed to matching innovation with dedication to deliver superior results, service and support for our clients.
