Murphy Geospatial was commissioned to undertake various geospatial services at UK House, a landmark heritage building on the North side of Oxford Street, London.
The primary brief of the project was to undertake a UAV/drone survey of the building roof and facades for the dual purpose of condition reporting and accurate as-built BIM modelling.
The UAV survey was undertaken by our Specialist Engineering Services (SES) team due to its prominent central London location and the requirement to fly as close to the building as possible. By undertaking a comprehensive UAV flight at close range (in line with all necessary UAV legislation and OH&S requirements), high-resolution imagery could be collated and inspected by our in-house Building Surveying team to provide a detailed Schedule of Condition Report.
In addition, the survey was undertaken to produce a full, accurate, and detailed scan-to-BIM model of the building facades in Autodesk Revit. Undertaken by the Digital Engineering team, the modelling was to be used by the architect, lighting designer, and various other project stakeholders to plan and refurbish the building.
By federating and updating the client’s existing survey and design information into a common BIM environment, Murphy Geospatial provided a singular BIM model of the building externals for all stakeholders to work from.
