BKF is providing 3D surveying services for the Salesforce Tower project adjacent to the new Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco. As the largest tower in San Francisco rises, BKF provides ongoing surveying services, including building alignment monitoring using GPS sensors and conventional total stations. BKF maintains quality assurance and control by monitoring the corewall construction and compression settlement using Leica ScanStation P40 3D Laser Scanners.
BKF prepared a Building Information Model which included time-phased presentations of existing and planned improvements for the 87-Acre campus at VA Palo Alto Medical Center. Each of the time-step models showed driveway and parking improvements, walkways, and buildings overlaid on 3D terrain models. The building Revit models were aligned with the civil 3D terrain models and site renderings for each time step. Navisworks file models were developed to show each step in a dynamic 3D visualization model.
BKF has implemented high definition scanning on hundreds of projects in California since 2008. Select projects include:
BKF has successfully implemented the use of Revit, Civil 3D, and Navisworks on many BIM projects, including:
For 100+ years BKF has been delivering inspired infrastructure for our clients.
