Our brief on tis job was to provide a scan of Romford town centre, so that a massing model could be created by the client.
For this job we used a Trimble SX10.
This isnstrument scans at a lower resolution and slower speed than a conventional laser scanner. However the instrument traverses as a conventional total station, hence there is no post processing of the scanned data. It is all brought back to the office is its correct position in the world.
We were therefore able to provide our client with what he needed - an accurate point cloud, from which he could quickly and easily make up solid blocks in a CAD system to represent the town centre.
Our skilled staff can also make up the massing models if our client needs us to.
