Scan to BIM Expedites 100-Year-Old Retrofit Project

Published on July 11, 2019

 

When Kruse Corporation needed to retrofit the basement of the 100-year-old Union Station with a full hydronic piping system, they called on Victaulic for their scan to BIM expertise. The Kansas-based mechanical contractor needed a unique solution for the train station’s tight spatial constraints and a demanding construction schedule, made worse by the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. With the help of Victaulic’s Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) team and cutting-edge BIM technology, Kruse saved upwards of 30% on labor costs and cut the build time in half.

 

“… it was a 100-year-old building, and it had a tight window in terms of the schedule,” Noah Morford (Victaulic) told Construction Dive. “So it took a lot of thinking outside the box about how this job was going to come to fruition.”

 

Victaulic’s VDC team used a 3D laser scanner to create an exact model of the space, eliminating the risk that comes with measuring the room by hand and detecting potential obstacles before equipment and products even arrive on site. This visualization of the project enabled Kruse to see the bigger picture from the start, catching key errors that would have put them behind schedule.
