In 2011, Plowman Craven was approached by Almacantar to undertake a full measured survey of the Centre Point Development in advance of planning.
We’ve been involved in this prestigious redevelopment in the heart of London ever since, delivering a wide range of surveys at Centre Point Tower, Centre Point Link and Centre Point House including;
- Measured building surveys
- Area referencing surveys
- Movement monitoring surveys
- High Accuracy Relief Mapping
- Environmental monitoring
In addition, we worked closely with the project design team to develop a bespoke product completely tailored to their needs.
The design team had a requirement for precise measurement to define undulation of slab and slab thickness for every floor of Centre Point Tower, including traditional high accuracy measured building products for all buildings.
Utilising highly accurate P40 laser scanning technology, Plowman Craven developed a bespoke technical solution and produced a variety of Digital Terrain Models (DTM).
To produce the DTM’s, a grid featuring approximately 17,000 levels was extracted, measured at 50mm spacing. These DTM’s featured contour shading at 1mm increments which allowed for the individual layers to be masked for interrogation by the client.
For each floor, a dense level grid was also created based on the DTM and presented at 250mm spacing with identification of specific high/low spots.
These products enabled the design team to maximise the use of space, whilst maintaining the structural integrity of this iconic set of buildings.
Plowman Craven continues to work closely with Almacantar through the construction phase of the project.
