Sampson, Planate’s director of supply chain logistics, and Lauren Whetstone, facility and space planner, achieved the successful execution of the data collection for this project within a demanding 10-day timeframe on-site at the end of March. Providing 3D photogrammetry scanning services at two Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) campuses — Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe School in Hayward, Wis., and Fond du Lac Ojibwe School in Cloquet, Minn. This project consists of utilizing a 3D scanner to conduct over a thousand scans that captured over eleven billion individual data points. This robust dataset is displayed in highly accurate 3D point-cloud models and updated as-built drawings that portray the layout and current condition of the facility and its technical systems.
The photos above show Lauren (top) and Jim (below) positioning a 3D scanner above ceiling tiles to collect point cloud data that will show facility systems and components that are not visible at floor level. This data can be used to create discipline specific technical drawings.
Samson, Planate’s director of supply chain logistics, Lauren, facility and space planner, and Enesh, deputy vice president of engineering services division, have spent recent months working to expand 3D photogrammetry scanning services to additional Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) campuses
