Waterfront Centre Scan to BIM

2017 | Vancouver, BC

McElhanney was hired by Stantec for this planned renovation project to relocate multiple commercial retail units (CRU’s) and modernize the food court. Record as-built drawings for this building were incomplete and deemed unreliable by the architects that needed a dependable model from which to base their design.

McElhanney provided:

  • Laser scan survey of the full interior including plenum spaces. Survey of this space was conducted outside of mall hours and completed in 4 nights.
  • LOD 300 Models, including all Architectural/Structural components and Mechanical/Electrical/Piping (MEP) Services.

The resulting model will not only be used for the upcoming renovation project but will also be used to update Lease Outline Drawings and confirm the lease areas on record. This existing condition 3D model is the foundation of their Building Information Model (BIM) and will be maintained as tenant improvements occur over time.
