SAMPLING OF PROJECTS PERFORMED BY SURVEY SYSTEMS (SSI)

High definition surveyinG

BIM is changing how buildings, infrastructure, and utilities are planned, designed, built and managed. The accuracy of the BIM model is dependent on an accurate asbuilt at the beginning of the project. Survey Systems is on the leading edge of new technology in developing high-definition scanning for accurate, comprehensive, 3D models, the foundation of BIM.

Alexan at Prospect

Client

Trammell Crow Residential

Project Location

Denver, CO

Project Description

A six-story multi-phase structure that was comprised of seven connected buildings built as separate structures. The project was complicated due to the following issues:

  • It was a confined small site that was bordered on the west and north by a major BNSF rail spur and on the south by a toll-way flyover and to the east by an existing 6-story structure.
  • The central structure was a precast parking structure.
  • There were critical connections to the parking structure and as each phase connected to each other.

SSI exceeded all expectations and completed what was thought of as being un-buildable while ensuring all seven buildings connected at precise locations and completed the project ahead of schedule by 6-months. We identified numerous areas of potential interference and worked with the design consultants to ensure the project proceeded on schedule and reduced the delays that would have been eminent.

The project required 1st order control surveying for the pre-cast parking structure (foundations and podium deck control on seven connected buildings surrounding a precast parking structure).

At the time, this site was the largest drilled pier project in the State of Colorado and while under construction was the largest drilled pier project under construction in the United States.

Survey Scope

First Order Control Surveying For Pre-Cast Structure, Full Survey Support, Largest Drill Pier Project In Colorado, Consultation

Performance Period

December 2008 – June 2010
