The “Faggiola” Rustic Court is an ancient private residence (now public) dating back to the early twentieth century. Having been neglected for a long time, the client decided to check its status by relying on 3D surveying technologies, before proceeding with redevelopment works and refurbishment and restoration interventions. During the days on the field, we worked with laser scanner instruments and it was possible to detect the geometry of the entire building: from the external areas to every single room, obtaining the highest precision necessary for the graphics redrawing. The material components of the building have been of great importance: building and finishing materials, signs left over from the passage of time, have contributed to a greater understanding of the building's real conditions. The methodology used, fast and non-invasive, is suitable for completing architectural diagnoses of buildings and defining the type of interventions to be carried out, be it demolition or restoration.


NEEDS AND GOALS
  • Detailed survey of the external and internal environments of the building.
  • Graphics rendering of the exact geometry of the building (plans, sections, and elevations) and its material component.
  • Future restoration and conservation interventions.

« Thanks to the data collected during the laser scanner survey and the use of JRC 3D Reconstructor processing software, it was possible to obtain a thorough reading of the material components of the building, through the extraction of high-resolution orthophotos, following applied to the CAD drawings. »
