From mustard factory to residential building

In this application, an existing old mustard factory was to be converted into a residential building. The two-story, U-shaped building contained various rooms full of production machinery, storage rooms and garages.

A digital survey of the property was imperative for highly accurate as-built plans. The specific task was to deliver floor plans and sections as CAD plans to the planning office cost-effectively and at short notice.

What exactly was it about? The purpose was the conversion of an existing old mustard factory. As is often the case, no current as-built plans were available. The complete acquisition of the object by means of 3D laser scanning, took 1/2 day. The result was 30 3D laser scans. Subsequently, floor plans and sections were created in PointCab Origins. Based on the evaluations created with PointCab Origins, the investment volume could be estimated. The duration of the data evaluation was only two hours.  Subsequently, the floor plans were imported into the customer’s CAD system. This provided a data basis for preliminary planning, design planning and final planning. In addition, the data could be used as a visualization basis for the creation of the apartment exposé.
