Our customer won an assignment to transform Guldberg’s Square in Nørrebro into a new and exciting urban space with varying terrain and opportunities for play and ball games, combined with the traditional park function. The consultant on the project supplied a 2D model that we converted to 3D, and at the same time, we provided analysis of the solution in relation to drainage. Our VDC department found a number of flat areas on the path that would result in poor drainage of water.
Therefore, together with the client, we redesigned the model of the path to ensure that water could be diverted. We also redesigned parts of the park’s drainage system so it fit with the new path design. The 3D models were subsequently delivered for use during machine control and surveying in the field. We also supplied overview maps that could be used on tablets in the field, where existing cables and designs could be seen via Google Earth, providing a better overview for project managers and foremen. Finally, we carried out a total survey of the finished park for “as-built” documentation and we thereby saw the assignment the whole way through.
Rungsted Harbour has received new jetty heads and stone piles along the jetties. Spotland’s VDC department helped with 3D models of the construction of the stone piles and with digital drawings for decision-making about the final design of the jetty heads.
The elements for the jetty heads were produced elsewhere in exclusive wood and subsequently shipped to the harbour as prefabricated elements. It was therefore crucial that dimensions and volumes were of razor-sharp precision. VDC helped with digital drawings to ensure this. The models were carried out based on a layout drawing and cross-section in 2D.
As-built surveys and quality assurance can often be a challenge with coastal projects like this since measurements are often carried out under the water in very poor visibility. Spotland was responsible for the handling of surveying, from machines and surveyor respectively, and during the project, we carried out volume calculations and prepared documentation of the various materials for documentation gradually as the different layers were constructed and surveyed.
Rønnevangsstrøget is a 700 m long stretch of park and urban space in Taastrup. Spotland has contributed with surveying services such as stakeout and quality assurance. Additionally, the VDC department created a complex 3D model for machine control for the excavation of concrete skatepark in the street area. The casting formwork was marked out with sticks in the conventional way.
The feedback from the contractor on site was: “You hit the bull’s eye pretty damn well!”
The VDC department at Spotland has carried out the as-built documentation for the entrepreneur Zøllner and their pier construction project in the city of Kalundborg. We have had great success with special designs for machine measurements for the machine operator. With these designs, the machine operator knows exactly how to perform his work and how to measure for as-Built documentation.
Measurement designs are not just valuable for marine constructions. They can with advantage be used on other projects as well. For example, if you have many machine measurements on a project a specific measurement design is great for the as-built documentation. You save a surveyor on the project, as the machine operator performs the measurement. Often, the surveyor is not available at the site, when it is necessary for him to measure the items performed before they are covered and become impossible to measure. With machine measurements, you get all the data in the house, and the machine operator knows what to measure.
