Construction Update - 61st Street Townhouse
Construction continues on the 61st Street Townhouse.
From Pointcloud Scan to Revit Model - Utilizing BIM for Classical Architecture
Progress continues @173 W Broadway
Lots of progress at 173 West Broadway this week. The roof deck is complete (just in time for unseasonably warm March afternoons), the storefront windows and elevator cab are being installed, and the kitchens are nearing completion.
We got our first look at the results of the 3D scans. Even without the color, its clear that much of the interior and exterior details have been captured.
Check out the screenshot slideshow:
Once all the scans are combined, we will be able to see the full building with color.
While uncommon, it is not impossible to find townhouses in New York City that have coach house in the rear yard. These small structures are often hidden from the street, surrounded by the buildings that have popped up over the last century.
It can be a design challenge to utilize these historic spaces, while also complying with modern building and fire codes. By building a cellar tunnel at the 61st Street project, the design was able to retain the courtyard, while connecting the two structures.
As property values climb in NYC, designers will continue to find ways to make every square foot count.
The Fonhill Castle renovation project is underway as the existing conditions are mapped and scanned with a precise laser. TRA will be able to use the scan to create an accurate, detailed computer model of the whole building.
It took two days of scanning to completely capture the interior and exterior of the castle.
