Early buy-in to the data-led process by the client (Alberta Infrastructure) gave us a great jumping-off point to start the Edmonton Law Court glazing replacement.

A point cloud for early data collection gave the team confidence to proceed with modelling and reduced the dimensional risk. Not only did it allow a fairly accurate design model at LOD 100, it allows regular checking back as the level of development (LOD) increases over the course of the project.

Tie-in details that don’t need be resolved until later in the project are left until the right time, and time is not wasted developing details that will never see the light of day. Next uses the point cloud scans consistently throughout projects as the level of development increases, which allows tight integration of the design solution with any existing conditions.
