Precision scanning of a large heritage site enabled an accurate reconstruction of historical buildings.
As part of a major intersection and tunnel project in Copenhagen, Ramboll carried out extensive 3D scanning of Svanemollen Barracks. In connection with the tunnel project, it was necessary to tear down the barrack buildings. However, these buildings are listed for preservation and have to be rebuilt in their original state.
The buildings presented a unique challenge, as they contain many smaller rooms and uneven angels, but Ramboll was able to produce 3D data that documented the buildings’ precise state of repair and appearance.
The 3D data makes it possible to accurately rebuild these historical buildings. The scanning method used for this project can be used for archaeological sites, historical artefacts, and heritage sites all around the world.
