Rarely does the opportunity to practice what you preach come along like the one at 152 Hampden Street. Built in 1856, the old brick and beam structure made for an interesting solution to Feldman’s need for a new head office. For the team at Feldman, skilled at applying the methods of smart survey to all their clients’ projects, the Victorian Eclectic-style factory building and warehouse was just the type of project they could shine their collective skills and knowledge on.
Used to supplying 3d laser scanning, BIM, and conventional forms of survey services for others, Feldman wasted no time in putting every aspect of smart survey to work when the decision was made to seek a permanent home for its own staff and equipment.
Smart Survey in Practice
Believing what you tell your clients about smart survey helps, but when the time comes to collect data for your own future headquarters, knowing how to get it right from the ground up becomes part of the lasting showcase of the firm. That’s why Feldman was there every step of the way from due diligence to permitting and throughout the renovation of the former machine shop and piano factory.
Scanning the building inside and out at multiple phases throughout the project meant everything from permitting to design went smoothly and according to the plans. And with that type of security and stability on the project from the start, it’s no wonder that the project was completed in time for the September, 2016 move.
Certainly, the building at 152 Hampden has put a stylish roof over the heads of the team at Feldman. But in return, those same professionals meticulously gathered enough data on the structure to ensure its vitality as a landmark headquarters for years and years to come.
Now imagine what smart survey could do for your next project.
