We rebuild the geometry of elements and infrastructures using 3D laser scanner technology
Some of our heritage projects
Our work based on the Structured Light Scanner technology allows us to generate a large amount of geometric documentation from the collected data by means of processing and editing software, mesh and 3D printing.
Scanning and digitalization building customs of Barcelona Port (1896 - 1902)
The Customs building of the Port of Barcelona is located in front of the Atarazanas in the Raval district of Barcelona, just in front of the Old Port, it sought to monumentalize the maritime entrance to the city and, at the same time, sought to rationalize the operations of control and valuation of goods.
It was built between 1896 and 1902 by the architect Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia in collaboration with Pere Garcia Fària, with an H-shaped plan, following the author's usual eclectic style.
It is a monumental building formed by two parallel bodies joined by another transversal body. The part that faces the sea is lower and has an industrial building typology. The main body, on the other hand, has the appearance of a palace, with a monumental facade richly decorated with classical motifs, some of them sculptures of illustrious and famous sculptors of the time such as Eusebi Arnau.
The façade has a monumental aspect, reminiscent of European-Central architecture, decorated with classical motifs -mainly in Ionic order-, topped with the shields of Barcelona, Catalonia and Spain, and with two eagles and eight winged lions, by Eusebi Arnau
Scanning and digitization of Saint-Paul Church in Granville, France
Digitization works of Saint-Paul Church in Granville, France. The work consisted of generating the 3D model using a laser scanner, identifying details not visible in the drawings and detecting problems.
Designed in 1877 as a Romanesque-Byzantine church, inspired by the eclecticism of the late nineteenth century by architect Bréhalais Paul Héneux: 66.66 m by 20.67 m of construction, with a large porch topped by a bell tower, a nave , semicircular choir, lateral, chapel of the Virgin, two others on the cruise, two sacristies, baptismal font at the entrance, a dome in the center of the cross. From the Roman and Byzantine monuments inherits the arches, the polychrome of the facade, dome and mosaics in the arms of the cruise.
In 1999, a diagnosis revealed the weaknesses of the building in several places: fragility of reinforced concrete made with sea sand, juxtaposition of hot and cold stones from the facade, corroded stained glass steel, moisture-deformed steel bars, water infiltration , degraded masonry, ship walls stabilized by braces, metal beams that support the internal vaults ...
3D scan and digitization of the Roman arch of Bará (13 a.C.)
The Arc of Bará. It is a triumphal arch (Arc de Berá) It is one of the best examples of monumental arch of a vain we have in Spain, and one of the best known. It is located on the layout of the Via Augusta, now converted into the N-340 road. Until the twentieth century the layout of this road ran under the monument. The Via Augusta was the longest of all the Roman roads of Hispania, traveled about 1500 km from Gades (Cádiz) to Narbo Martius (Narbonne, in France).
Built around the year 13 a.C., during the mandate of Emperor Augustus, was included in the reform of the network of roads that meant a change of layout of the Herculean road as it passed through Tárraco. This reform supposed the change of name of the route, that from that moment happened to be called Vía Augusta.
It is an honorific arch formed by a central body on two rectangular-shaped podiums consisting of three rows of ashlars, decorated with false fluted pilasters that culminate in Corinthian capitals. It has a single opening in a semicircular arch. The upper part of the construction has an entablature formed by architrave, frieze and cornice. It is built with calcareous stone, probably from a nearby site.
