The Beverly Hills Hotel was opened in 1912, two years prior to the incorporation of the city of Beverly Hills itself. The five-star hotel consists of 210 guest rooms on 4 floors and a series of 23 stand-alone, multi-unit villas.
Architectural Resource Consultants (ARC) was hired to provide a field survey and CAD as-builts of the hotel lobby, guest rooms, 73-year-old Polo Lounge, and the stairs and porte cochere in order to proceed with renovations of the facility.
The survey was completed using 3D HDS (High Definition Survey) Laser Scanning. A survey control network was established with an intent to further expand upon it in the future. ARC also set permanent (yet discrete) control markers so that the control network could be established to a known benchmark and tied in through GPS. Laser scans were registered together and tied to the control network so the data and model were geo-referenced to a real-world coordinate system.
ARC’s final deliverables included a 3D BIM of the hotel interior, 2D floor plan, 2D power/signal plan, and 2D reflected ceiling plans. A total of about 1,891 hours were dedicated to the scanning and modeling of all the areas of interest. The hotel remained fully operational throughout the scanning process.
