Case Study: Scan-to-BIM
Project: London Wall Barbican Centre
The Centre for Music was to be a showcase £288m project located in a world-class building, featuring a state-of-the-art concert hall and superb facilities for experiencing, making and learning about music of all kinds.
Sadly, with the economic belt-tightening that accompanied the global pandemic in 2020, the commissioning client, the Corporation of the City of London, decided to axe what had come to look like a rather extravagant project in favour of a major refurbishment of the Barbican Centre already located on the site.
With one of the major attractions on the site, the Museum of London, being relocated to new premises in West Smithfield, the site has now been laser scan surveyed and Benchmarq was commissioned to create a 3D Revit BIM model of the site in order to enable the architect, Sheppard Robson, to generate drawings/illustrative materials for the planning submission for the project, now known as London Wall West.
A Revit model of one of the retained buildings on the site, Ironmongers Hall, already existed.
- Expand the model to include other buildings and structures on the site.
- Include highwalks, underground car parks, office blocks and Roman ruins.
- Develop the various parts of the model to Level 2 and Level 3 detail, as specified.
- Include surrounding contextual elevations along London Wall, Aldersgate and the Barbican Estate.
- Deliver the updated *.rvt file back to the architects.
