Historic Santa Ana YMCA begins its journey back to the community.
Pointknown contracted to capture 160,000 SF over 7 Floors of Class A Office Space. Utilizing PKNail Pro and SLAM Devices and Software captured the entire property over a single evening. While processing the data was not inconsequential so was the low impact of the survey teams on a 90% occupied building. Pointknown produced new floorplans for the building, space calculations, BOMA reporting and color coded floorplans per tenant.
Pointknown was tasked with capturing Ocean Spray’s HQ, over 160,000 SF of Office Space and Labs over 3 Floors set on hundreds of acres of woods and bogs in Lakeville, MA. Because of the nature of the building and deliverable we were able to capture the bulk of the features and geometry directly with PKNail Pro, allowing us to measure and model in real time in the field. Interior Wall Partitioning, Bathroom Layouts, Windows and Doors. After the geometry was completed we placed the acoustical tile grids, and placed objects directly with the Revit interface.
For surveying and documenting buildings having a set of tools allows a provider to offer the right solution set to your clients. Not everything's a nail so carry more than a hammer. We first developed PKNail Pro because we needed another tool set in the field, and started offering it commercially because clients asked us if we would provide it. Does it do everything, no; it was intended and designed to capture typical conditions very well, and quickly by turning measurements directly into Revit based objects, walls, windows doors, locate / place wall based objects from plumbing to electrical to fire protection and it does that very well.

We recently delivered a Revit EB (Existing Building) Model of 18 Tremont a historic 12-story, 202,000-square-foot office with ground-floor retail in downtown Boston. The building was acquired by DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners in October 2015. Pointknown, with its partners, created an exterior HDLS (High Definition Laser Scan) and Revit model of the exterior as well as the elevator lobby, and stair cores. After creating the base Revit model the Pointknown Team utilized PKNail Pro , a point to point, direct to Revit, reality capture tool, to document interior wall partitioning, doors, and bathroom layouts. Using the combined technologies helped us tremendously in speed and accuracy, and the database functionality of Revit allowed us to assign spaces/offices and run space calculations a lot easier than polylining spaces. We were then able to produce formatted documents, floor plans, sections, space calculations for the owners / investors and delivered the model for the designers.
