Case Study – Laser Scanning – Edison Telstra Exchange

Charter’s Land Surveying team were recently involved in laser scanning the 9 storey Edison Telstra Exchange building in the Brisbane CBD. As part of Telstra’s National divestment program, Charter Land Surveyors spent two weeks on site scanning the building, internally and externally-to produce a millimetre accurate point cloud dataset of over 9 billion points.

The point cloud dataset has been used and viewed by prospective purchasers in Knight Franks’ international expression of interest campaign allowing prospective purchasers the chance to complete a virtual tour of the building from the comfort of their office. Using the latest software, people viewing the data can calculate specific measurements such as ceiling heights, wall thickness and room sizes allowing informed decisions to be made without repeat visits to the site.

Practical uses for laser scanning include office refurbishments, heritage façade surveys, town planning and design, structural engineering, civil engineering and modelling and design for architects. Please call Nicholas Moore or Stephen Circosta to find out more on how scanning can assist your next project.
