VOLKER FITZPATRICK - NORTHAMPTON UNI
Bionic Eye and particularly Bionic Group has been working with Volker Fitzpatrick for several years helping communicate complex phasing sequences for their major projects (Method Statements). As a result of our collaboration, Volker Fitzpatrick wanted to find a way to elevate their bid submissions in light on new technology. They also wanted to find out if there was a way to gain a topological dataset for the site for planning and resourcing.
We suggest that we used our LiDAR-based UAV systems to scan the construction site in detail so that they had a very accurate model to work from. We visited the site which was being prepared for the initial construction works, and through a series of flights captured the site and surrounding areas as a cloud point model.
- Reduced Health and Safety considerations - lower human intervention, no disruption to existing work activity, no abseiling, no human connection to unstable structures
- Allowed an accurate model for volumetric analysis for earthworks to confirm pricing model
- The Cloud point mad ethe client look more advanced as it was used for the bid presentation
- Upon winning the project, the cloud point is now used for the BIM model
