In January 2016, Trimetari Consulting LLC performed laser scanning of the main building of Bogoliubovsky Mining and Processing Plant, which processes gold-sulfide and gold-antimony ore. The purpose of the work is to create an executive BIM-model of the facility. The industrial building with an area of more than 3000 m², multi-level structures, technological equipment and communications were scanned in 2 days. The resulting point cloud was later used to build an accurate and up-to-date BIM model of the factory. (read more…)
It is challenging to meet quality requirements for reconstruction and modernization of complex buildings projects. The more complex the building, the more time architects spend measuring. Manual measurements are, moreover, usually inaccurate and incomplete if access to certain parts of the structure is difficult to reach. But, is there a better way to measure and obtain up-to-date as-built documentation? (read more…)

In November 2013 the Trimetari Company performed laser scanning of the hotel complex in Moskovskaya Region, Russia. The square of the territory for 3D laser scanning made around 2 ha, on this territory the interiors of all the buildings and constructions, as well as facades, basements and roofing were scanned.
The main problem to be solved with the help of laser scanning and BIM modelling is to provide up to date information on the condition of the whole object for the design of a large-scale reconstruction. The contracting authority used Autodesk Revit Software for the creation of BIM model from the point cloud data. (read more…)
Despite the fact that the first ground-based scanners appeared back in the last century, one can hardly say that a 3D-scanning laser technology is widely used in the design and construction of industrial facilities. The main reasons are probably the cost of such systems which is still high and the lack of information about how to use them effectively in particular applications. Nevertheless, interest in this technology and demand for it on the market of surveying equipment is growing in geometric progression with every year, and the high cost of the acquisition is more and more compensated by the offers from scanning services providers.
Depending on the project goals and objectives, the laser scanning technology can be effectively combined with 3D-design technologies. (read more…)
The main square of Yekaterinburg city, which is called “Ploschad’ 1905 Goda“, had a lot of monuments during its lifitime. Before the revolution, there was the Cathedral on the square, and a monument to Alexander II was established in front of the Cathedral in 1906. In 1918, its place was given to the Statue of Liberty. Then, in 1920, the bust of Karl Marx was installed instead on the same pedestal. A few months later, the Monument to the Liberation of Labor was erected instead of the bust. In 1930, the Cathedral and the monument were blown up. A huge tribune was installed in the center of the square. Finally a monument to Vladimir Lenin was erected on the podium on November 5, 1957. The monument was designed by the sculptor Ingal.
In 2013, the local Ministry of Culture decided to renovate the monument, which is an object of cultural heritage. Trimetari Consulting LLC was awarded a contract to make an architectural survey of the monument by means of 3D laser scanning. (read more…)
In 2013, Trimetari Consulting LLC in collaboration with The Institute of Mining of the Russian Academy of Science performed surveying of one of the copper ore quarries of UMMC in order to develop a methodology for monitoring geomechanical processes in the open-pit sides. The quarry is located in the Middle Urals, Russia.
The reconnaissance of the career 1000 m long, 600 m wide and 150 m deep was made in order to identify the best locations for the 3D laser scanner stations, as well as their quantity, necessary to bring together all the results of laser scanning into a single coordinate system and obtain a single 3D-model of the open excavation.

In February 2013 Trimetari Consulting LLC performed a geodetic survey of the first power unit of the Southwestern CHP Plant with the use of terrestrial laser scanning . The Southwestern Combined Heat and Power Plant is located in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Laser scanning of existing facilities was carried out in order to create AS-BUILT 3D model for the design of the second stage of the power plant.
Denisova Cave in the Altai Mountains (Siberia, Russia) is a world famous Paleolithic site (51° 23′ 51.29″ N, 84° 40′ 34.34″ E). Regular archaeological excavations are being performed here since 1982, more than 20 cultural layers were revealed, and more than 80000 finds were collected. In 2008, a new branch in human evolution was discovered based on finds in the Denisova Cave . So it is an actual task to digitally preserve this unique object using up-to-date methods of 3D documentation: i.e. to create virtual (digital) 3D model of the cave and most important finds, and visualize results of archaeological research based on this model.

The Church of St. Nicholas in Zastenie, built from limestone in 1542, is an interesting monument of the Pskov architectural style. The church is located on a small island, washed by the river Velikaya on a both sides. In ancient times there was the fortress, the ruins of which can be found there. The church has a feature, very unusual for orthodox architecture – the altar is placed not to the East but to the North. Presumably northern direction is coincided to the city of Pskov, the founder and patron of his suburban city of Ostrov .
In 2012 the restoration of the church was started that required an accurate architectural measurement. (read more…)
