Block Height

Virtuscan was contracted by a local authority to measure 33 residential tower blocks across South London in the social housing sector. The project involved two days of scanning and one day processing. The scope of works included a terrestrial laser scan of each property and the creation of visual output to accompany the height measurements.

The goal was to capture building heights in accordance with Approved Document B (ADB), which specifies the requirements for the fire safety of buildings in the UK. The measurements were needed from the lowest side of the building to the upper surface on the top storey of each tower block.

Block Height Survey

Virtuscan’s team of experts used colour scans to capture the upper levels and links to the lowest areas of each building. Once the scans were processed, measurements to the upper floor level were taken and added to the image of each property. The team used vertical heights to ensure accurate height measurements were taken.
