Below are three of the 27 laser scans of the structure.   Prepared by John Smits of East Coast Metrology of Topsfield, MA.

 

Laser scanning provides a new approach to disassembly and reconstruction of endangered stone buildings.  Reconstruction of the stone façade requires precision measurement and individual stone imagery to place each stone in its original position, resulting in precise duplication of the original structure.   Because all of the data is digital, buildings can be redesigned in leading architectural software … BIM, HD-BIM, Revit, et al.

 

Laser scanners are capable of astonishing accuracy and detail.  Every scan measures millions of points and each point knows its precise XYZ position. Collectively, these points constitute a three dimensional "point cloud" that can be navigated, drafted, and modeled in CAD and BIM applications.  A point cloud is a dimensionally-correct, digital copy of the building itself.

Laser Scanning is accurate to within 1/7th of an inch.  Each Rockport granite stone is 9"x 5"x 5", weighing 23 pounds.  The walls are two stones thick, so the 30,000+ stones in the building weigh roughly 700,000 pounds, or 350 tons, and will take 16 flatbed truckloads to deliver to the new site.

 

ResErections, Inc. specializes in documenting, marketing and disassembling architecturally unique 19th century stone buildings that can be reconstructed on sites where the investment results in the creation of new real estate wealth.  Buyers save an endangered  magnificent structure from demolition - and create new architectural art.

 

 

 

ResErections collaborates with local architects and tradesmen at both the source and destination of the buildings. We do not rebuild because we have no control over what the new owner and architect want to do. We build the supply chain between the seller and the buyer of reputable professional firms. We document the structure, supervise on-site work standards, disassemble, package, and ship the recovered components. We recover everything that will not crumble when touched.
