The Orangery is an arts centre in Wakefield, which was recently refurbished to encourage greater public participation in the arts.
Opus’ surveyors were appointed as part of a scheme to allow online visitors to take a virtual tour of the grounds, giving them the best possible experience without actually being there.
As architects DLA needed to capture 3D images of the grounds and buildings for the software, Opus surveyors spent two days on site using a tripod mounted Laser scanner to build a complete picture of The Orangery. The point cloud was then transferred into Revit, allowing the architect to build a 3D model of The Orangery’s buildings and grounds.
This technology means that visitors can experience exactly what they would see if they were actually walking around the grounds and buildings of The Orangery.
