Wellington Town Hall – strengthening our past

Wellington Town Hall is in the process of being strengthened to better protect the heritage building from earthquakes. Part of the job is understanding where to start.

We’ve put together this animation showing one of the best tools for this – point clouds or scanning the building. It gives accurate measurements of the building the way it is today.

We then import that data into Revit, our 3D drafting software. We can then determine strengthening options. The architects can then inform their drawings with the actual dimensions and create their own 3D models.
