3D Laser scanning services & As-Buit Surveys
We rebuild the geometry of elements and infrastructures using 3D laser scanner technology
Some of our heritage projects
Our work based on the Laser Scanner technology allows us to generate a large amount of geometric documentation from the collected data through 3D point cloud processing and editing software.
3D digitalization of heritage - Pont del Diable
ScanPhase scans and digitizes in 3D the historic Roman bridge "Pont del Diable" built between Martorell and Castellbisbal between the banks of the Llobregat River, which was the only bridge in the valley below the Llobregat until the 14th century. Of Roman origin, it was built around 10 BC. during the empire of Augustus, with a length of 130 meters and a wide horizontal road. The whole was part of the Via Augusta, one of the main axes of the Roman road network in Hispania that connected the peninsula with the Iberian Italica. Continuing to the Via Domicia and continued in the direction of Gades (present Cadiz) parallel to the Mediterranean sea. From the Roman period the abutments of the bridge are conserved, made with great ashlars and a triumphal arch honorific very damaged in the left margin (east end of the bridge), already of century II d. C., made with a concrete core covered with ashlars under the construction system of Opus Quadratum and that had two pilasters of Corinthian order. This work reaffirms the importance of 3D digitization of elements of architectural and cultural heritage, since it allows to have precise elements for its conservation according to the original guidelines of its creators.
Basilica of La Merced - 3D reproduction of interiors
3D interior scanning of the Basilica dedicated to the Virgin of Mercy, being one of the most representative churches of the City of Barcelona.
From the works of scans of the central nave, sides and chapels, in addition to transept with dome on the cruise has been able to elaborate a 3D virtual visit.
The Basilica of Nuestra Señora de la Merced and San Miguel Arcángel, is a baroque church located in the Plaza de la Merced, in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Built between 1765 and 1775, the work of the Catalan architect Josep Mas i Dordal.
The interior stands out for its monumentality, mitigate by its delicate decoration in rococo style, with rich coverings in marble and stucco and complicated latticework in the high tribunes. The valuable image of the Mare de Déu de la Mercè is a Gothic work of 1361, attributed to the sculptor Pere Moragues.
Laser scanning of entire buildings
Complete 14-story building laser scanning project, work done in record time of five days versus several weeks that might be required using traditional methods, considering an accuracy of 4-6 mm.
The information was generated as "As-Built" documentation and the works consisted of capturing all the details of the multipurpose building: warehouses, workshops, commercial area, office area, accommodation, common areas such as kitchens, dining rooms, meetings, interior courtyards, etc.
As a result, the state of the original structures, the changes made in subsequent renovations and extensions, and undocumented modifications made over time could be identified.
The resulting point clouds were adjusted and refined, prepared for subsequent dumping in the design tool. Each scanning point was accompanied by its corresponding 360 photography, allowing technicians to observe every detail without having to revisit the facility.
Scanning and digitalization Roman aqueduct built in the 1st century BC.
ScanPhase scans and digitizes the historic Roman aqueduct of Les Ferreres, sometimes also called Puente del Diablo, which was used well into the 18th century.
The so-called aqueduct of les Ferreres is a Roman arcade that is part of the aqueduct that supplied water from the Francolí River to the city of Tarraco (Tarragona), capital of the Roman province of Hispania Citerior Tarraconensis that included, in its period of maximum splendor, two third parts of the Iberian Peninsula.
The aqueduct was built in the 1st century BC. by Augusto and supplied water from the river to the city from a distance of 25 km, was used well into the eighteenth century.
Located 4 km north of the city. The arcade of the aqueduct is 217 meters long and 27 meters high. It has two levels with overlapping arches and built in ashlars joined together in dry. They are 40 centimeters of unevenness from its northern part to the southern part, which facilitated the flow of water to the city.
The two levels of superimposed arcades were built with ashlars (opus quadratum). The lower one is composed by 11 arches of 6.30 m. of light and 5.70 m. Tall. The upper one has 25 of similar dimensions. The maximum height of the construction is 27 m. and its length of 217 m.
3D Tunnel digitization of the Garraf area
Scanning work by tunnel laser scanning in the Garraf area. The works consisted of the update of the existing 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) model and the inclusion of the survey of the technical enclosures associated with the tunnel.
The information was generated as "As-Built" documentation:
Original point clouds by scanning techniques with the precision <7 mm.
Clouds of adjusted and classified points, differentiating pavement, and refined to obtain the transversal and longitudinal profiles of the roadways.
Spherical georeferenced photos and adjusted to the point clouds that show all the elements present in the infrastructures.
Point clouds were generated in original scanner laser format, as well as LAS and LAZ.
3D printing historic Roman aqueduct of Segovia - 2nd century AD
The Aqueduct of Segovia is a Roman aqueduct located in the Spanish city of Segovia. Its construction dates from the beginning of the 2nd century AD, at the end of the reign of the Emperor Trajan or the beginning of Hadrian's. The most visible part, and therefore famous, is the arcade that crosses the Plaza del Azoguejo, in the city.
The aqueduct of Segovia leads the waters of the Fuenfría spring, located in the mountains near 17 kilometers from the city. Travel more than 15 kilometers before arriving in the city. The water is collected first in a cistern, to be followed by a channel of ashlars to a second tower, where it is decanted and desarena, to continue its way. Then it goes through 813 m (with a slope of 1%). It goes towards the Plaza del Azoguejo, where it saves the depression with an arcade, which presents all the splendor of the monument. In the highest part it measures 28 meters (with about 6 meters of foundations) and has two orders of arches on pillars. In total, it has 167 arcs.
From its arrival in the city to the Plaza de Día Sanz there are 75 simple arches and then 44 arcades of double order (that is, 88 arches). In the first section of the aqueduct there are 36 pointed arches, rebuilt in the 15th century to restore the part destroyed by the Muslims in 1072.
3D Laser Scanning: Digitization of technical services Health Center for BIM model (Barcelona)
Laser scanning and digitization of the technical services of an old health center built at the beginning of the 20th century in Barcelona's Eixample. The works consisted of updating the existing 3D model and the inclusion of the lifting of the technical rooms associated with the building.
The work consisted of capturing all the details of the building with a laser scanner, and as a result of this, it was possible to identify the state of the original structures, the changes made in renovations and subsequent extensions, as well as undocumented modifications made over time.
The resulting point clouds were adjusted and refined, prepared for later dump into the design tool. Each scan point was accompanied by its corresponding 360 photograph, allowing technicians to observe every detail without having to revisit the facility.
