The company worked alongside Tangent Projects who requested the BIM in order to complete a full refurbishment and fit-out on the office building.

Vision Survey was appointed to survey a striking headquarters office building arranged over ground and two upper floors and located in Manor Royal Business District in Crawley.

An accurate representation of the building layout was also required by the owner for maintenance purposes as it could allow them to locate various ducts, pipelines and other services in the future without having to remove structures within the building. 

Vision used 3D laser scanning techniques to capture the building’s characteristics with millions of points of data. This created an incredibly accurate model representation of the building, inside and out. Using these scans, a computer generated image could be created of what the interior and exterior would look like once the project was complete. 

This method allowed the final project owner to receive realistic visualisations of completed work in 2D, 3D and even Virtual Reality. It not only enabled them to have a more accurate depiction of the final product, but also empowered them to make any changes before the work stage has started. This meant that time and money is not wasted during the project.

Advantages of Building Information Modelling (BIM):

  • More efficient planning and design
  • Fewer re-works (planning and on-site)
  • Cost saving on materials
  • Support for prefabrication
