By providing comprehensive 3D models and accurate measurements, TrueScan helped Case Western in Cleveland, Ohio squeeze a new boiler system into a tight space.
Working with major mechanical systems within a limited amount of space can present future planning issues. An example of this is seen in the Case Western Reserve boiler plant when there was a need to add a new boiler system. The new system required a tight fit amongst the existing multi-boiler system with pipes and ductwork running through the building.
TrueScan scanned the building in just two days and created a Revit model of the existing conditions. Every column, beam, pipe, valve, boiler, along with any other building or system component was modeled in a reverse BIM process. This provided the necessary starting point for designing and prepping the building for moving the new boiler system into place.
