Laser Scanning Survey
The ‘Sackville Street Building’ is on Sackville Street in Manchester and is currently occupied by the University of Manchester.
It was originally opened in 1902 and was occupied by the School of Technology, which became the Manchester Municipal College of Technology in 1918. The building was gradually extended from 1930. The building was grade 2 listed in 1974 and currently serves as the home for the University of Manchester’s School of electrical engineering.
The site has been earmarked as a ‘new hub for technology’ and the draft proposals for the site show potential for homes, office facilities, retail and hotel rooms.
Our Surveying Work On Sackville Street
Survey Operations were appointed to undertake a measured building survey of some 650,000 square feet over 12 floors. A full laser scanning survey was undertaken throughout the building and a Revit model was created. Some 2700 scans were undertaken, amounting to over 20 billion points of detail. In addition, our in-house UAV was flown over the building to survey inaccessible roof areas to complete the survey detailing.
The 3D model produced from the Laser Scanning and Photogrammetry allows designers to fully detail all aspects of the building for the refurbishment work and construction work and assist in the building’s future promotional requirements.
