As the incumbent digital surveyors for Waitrose and Partners, one of the UK’s leading supermarket chains, we were tasked with conducting a comprehensive 3D survey of Jubilee House, a modern commercial building within their Bracknell Campus.
The objective of the survey was to capture precise measurements and detailed information on the building’s structure and interior spaces. This information was critical in informing refurbishment plans and reconfiguring the building’s layout for optimal use. By providing a detailed understanding of the building’s current state, the survey helped to minimize unforeseen issues and streamline the design process.
At Digital Inc, we have a wealth of experience in 3D laser scanning, point cloud modelling, and BIM surveys. Our work with Waitrose has been crucial in helping them to achieve their vision of a fully realized digital twin of their entire portfolio.
The data we have collected through our surveys has allowed Waitrose to visualize and test their designs before any physical work is carried out, reducing costs and ensuring that their vision is fully realized. To begin the survey process, we conducted a full 3D laser scan of the interior and exterior of Jubilee House. This scan allowed us to capture accurate measurements and details, enabling us to create a highly detailed point cloud model of the entire building.
Using the data collected from the scans, we created a BIM-ready survey of Jubilee House that was ready for use by Waitrose’s design team. The survey was developed to LOD300, ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the model. We worked closely with Waitrose to convert the fixtures, fittings, and equipment into BIM and create a separate model for each level of the building.
The completed survey provided Waitrose with a detailed BIM-Ready Survey of Jubilee House that allowed them to visualize and test their designs before any physical work was carried out. This helped to reduce costs and ensure that Waitrose’s vision was fully realized.
As Waitrose’s trusted partner in this ongoing project, we are committed to providing them with the necessary tools and expertise to achieve their goals. We are proud to have been able to play a key role in their journey towards a fully realized digital twin of their entire portfolio.
