Expedited Permitting, Adaptive Reuse, and MEP Modeling

| July 31, 2017

Boston – Feldman’s new office building is one of the best case studies to show how services are necessary during all phases of a project life cycle. First, the company performed the ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey for due diligence, acquisition, and financing. To expedite design and permitting, it concurrently performed 3D laser scanning of the interior and exterior of the building to plan for the new addition and adaptive reuse of this 20,000sf, historic space.

Feldman first looked at the property in July, then got to work on its survey, modeling, and design right away. Its permit set was submitted in October, and the permit to build was obtained in November. Due to this expedited process, there were two months before it closed on the acquisition to complete the CDs. Construction began the day after it closed.

Upon completion of the eight-month construction project, an as-built, 3D laser scan of the interior and exterior was performed to provide a complete model, including architectural and structural features along with all MEP systems.

Scanning and BIM for Adaptive Reuse or Ground Up Construction – Feldman has been providing clients with construction grade laser scanning for over 14 years. From the start, we gave our clients the easiest and most risk-free path to the benefits and advantages that laser scanning and BIM could provide for their projects.

Direct MEP to Client Delivery – We have developed a highly skilled, in-house, Boston based team of MEP engineers proficient in the
manipulation of point cloud data and Revit MEP modeling.

Information Translation – We can also consult with our clients’ teams to help develop their own existing modeling processes to better
utilize the point clouds they receive.
