Discovery Head Offices, West Street, Sandton

The Discovery head office located on 155 West Street in Sandton, is a 9-story building, with 4 levels above ground and 5 basement levels. The purpose of this project was to aid the architecture team in the re-design of the building. Due to unreliable as-built plans we were contacted to scan and model the building in its entirety.

This included the exterior, interior, basements, adjacent roads and roof.

With over 1300 scan positions we captured the full extent and detail of this building inside and out. With the final product being a highly populated Autodesk Revit model, with supplementary floor plans for each floor.

One of the main challenges during this project was working around an office full of employees continuing with their day to day operations. However, with minimal disruption we were able to effectively move around with disturbing the staff.
