Client requirements

We were contracted by Seddon Construction to create a 3D Revit Model of Le Mans Crescent. Owned by Bolton Council, the grade-II listed building is to be converted into an 87-bedroom hotel as part of a multi-million pound redevelopment project.

Formerly Bolton Magistrates’ Court, the Le Mans Crescent redevelopment will provide 100 new jobs and a major boost to the town’s leisure economy.

Seddon Construction, working on behalf of Bolton Council, contracted 40SEVEN to produce a 3D Revit Model of the interior and exterior, to assist with design.


40Seven Solution

Le Mans Crescent is a large and complex building with areas of restricted access, making it difficult to survey in its entirety without specialist equipment.

Using industry-leading drone technology, we were able to successfully survey inaccessible areas of the roof, enabling us to complete a full scan of the building.

The survey data captured by the drones was combined with FARO laser scanner data in order to produce a precise 3D Revit Model of Le Mans Crescent.

Simultaneously we undertook a full Topographical survey of the building’s surrounding areas, alongside a PAS128 Utility survey and a CCTV drainage inspection.


The Results

In 10 weeks we delivered a robust 3D Revit model of both the interior and exterior – including floor plans and elevations – in conjunction with a fully comprehensive PAS128 Utility and Topographical survey.

We were able to deliver added value too, since our client was able to undertake a structural condition survey based on the high-quality scan data our laser scanners and drones captured.
