HERON SUCCESS CASE — ENERGY REQUALIFICATION

FROM LASER SCANNER SURVEY TO 3D BIM MODEL Chigi Palace, Rome (IT)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

KEYWORDS: Engineering | Heritage | BIM | Heron | 3D Mapping 

The Chigi Palace is a historic building, in the heart of Rome, currently the seat of the Government of the Italian Republic. The entire building was taken over for the purpose of constructing a 3D BIM model aimed at energy redevelopment, therefore without the need for millimetric accuracy.

HERON outside the Chigi Palace

« The survey with HERON was very useful for the creation of the BIM model. Simply walking through the rooms of the historic building, we quickly got an enormous amount of data, subsequently used by the customer for CAD modeling.»

NEEDS AND GOALS
  • 3D survey of the historic building for energy efficiency
  • Speed and confidentiality during the course of the survey
  • Creation of a BIM model

The quick execution of the survey campaign was made possible thanks to the integration of several relevant methodologies, in particular, thanks to the real-time mobile acquisition made with HERON.

    In The survey phase with HERON took place in the internal and external regions of the building, for a duration of 3 days and a total of about 25.000 m², divided into 94 dynamic acquisitions with a resolution of about 2 cm. At the same time, 54 detailed scans (with an average resolution of 4 mm) were captured with Z+F static laser scanner, then georeferenced by classical topography.

      Starting from the point clouds, we worked with special modeling software to obtain the 3D reconstruction of the building.

      RESULTS
      • Georeferenced point cloud 
      • 3D Model
      • BIM modelling of the all building
