Leicester University

The University's Engineering Building was the first major building by important British architect James Stirling.

It comprises workshops and laboratories at ground level, and a tower containing offices and lecture theatres. It was completed in 1963 and is notable for the way in which its external form reflects its internal functions.

It is considered to be of great national importance by English Heritage.

The point cloud scan data provided by 3d Surveyscan was used to design the replacement roof structure. Because of the complexity of the roof design we were onsite for a total of six weeks.

scanning was limited to certain periods of the day due the students lecture times. in total 19 seperate workspaces were produced averaging between 30-50 scans per workspace.
