  • The Museum Building, built in the 1850s, is regarded as one of the finest and most influential examples of Victorian architecture.
  • The laser scan survey was used by Trinity College for ongoing maintenance and conservation works for the building.
  • The survey was also used by the “Making Victorian Dublin” research project to study the materials, craftsmanship and history of the Museum Building.

Protected Building, Dublin

Scan to BIM

  • MMA Consulting Engineers completed a high definition 3D laser survey of a protected historic building and site on the quays in Dublin city centre which was being converted into a 160 Bedroom Aparthotel.
  • The captured 3D laser scan point cloud was converted into a 3D Building Information Model.
  • The accuracy of the generated Building Information Model was validated using BIM & Scan AutoCorr™ cloud-based validation software. This ensured the required tolerances for the generated Building Information Model were achieved.
  • This Building Information Model was used as a basis for the design of the new Aparthotel on the site

Skerries & Drumanagh Martello Towers

Laser Scan Survey

  • MMA Consulting Engineers completed a high definition 3D laser scan, photographic and topographic survey of the Skerries, Red Island Martello tower and the Drumanagh, Loughshinny Martello tower.
  • The captured survey data was used to produce 3D and 2D model and drawing deliverables for Fingal County Council.
