Royal London Hospital Revit Survey
Revit Survey of former Royal London Hospital used by AHMM to design Tower Hamlets Town Hall
As part of a £77m urban regeneration project, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets is converting the former Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel into a new town hall and administration complex.
Working with Allford Hall Mogahan Morris Architects (AHMM), Terrain Surveys carried out a 3D laser scan of the entire 18th century, Grade II building which is a landmark in London’s East End.
To enable the project team to visualise the building and work on a 3 dimensional BIM model, Terrain Surveys converted the 3D point cloud to a detailed Revit model, including elements both internally and externally with architectural detailing.
Scans were completed of the entire building following three weeks of internal and external surveys.
As well as being a Whitechapel landmark, the hospital building is famous for it’s former resident, John Merrick, known as the Elephant Man. Its conversion to the new Civic Centre is central to the regeneration of Whitechapel ready for the opening of Crossrail in 2018, which will include 2500 new homes, retail premises and public spaces. The new Civic Centre is scheduled for completion in 2021.
