Benefits of Heritage work include:
Accuracy. Laser scanning allows for accurate measurements. Detailed architectural elements can also be documented with higher levels of development (LOD).
Preservation. Laser scanning allows for contact-free documentation leaving the architectural elements untouched and keeping workers safe in case of any structurally unsound elements. It will allow you to have a digital version of the site for any future restoration and visualization purposes.
Our past is something to cherish and worth protecting. ARC provides knowledge and technical expertise to help document and preserve places of significant cultural and architectural value. We utilize tools such as advanced photo imagery and 3D laser scanners to provide an accurate historical record of structures. Whether the documentation will serve to meet the needs of an HABS (Historic American Buildings Survey) requirement, or perhaps to aide in the creation of an HBIM (Historic Building Information Model), ARC’s heritage documentation helps provide an accurate record of what exists and preserves and protects our collective past.
ARC has specialized in providing high quality building documentation services since 1997. We believe that owners, designers and contractors do not need to be subjected to unforeseen existing conditions or the associated costs and time delays that often accompany them. During this time, ARC has focused on perfecting the means, methods and best practices to provide extremely accurate as-built documentation using the latest in technologies such as HDS (High Definition Survey) 3D Laser Scanning and advanced photo imagery.
