UK’s First Thai Buddhist Temple Surveyed by Terrain Surveys
The Buddhapadipa Temple in Wimbledon is the first Thai Buddhist temple in the UK. Originally inaugurated in 1966 by the Royal Thai Embassy, the temple was relocated from a site in East Sheen to its present location in 1976. The temple building is surrounded by four acres of tranquil gardens.
Land surveyors from Terrain Surveys spent a two busy days carrying out a detailed building survey of the temple using 3D laser scanning to capture the temple’s structural details and ornate architectural features.
Detailed plans, sections and elevations of the temple building, including the shrine room and roof spaces were provided to the client to support the design team involved in planning renovation work.
As well as detailed CAD drawings, a TruView file was delivered to the client. TruView is a web based panoramic pointcloud viewer which allows the user to view, pan around, zoom, measure and mark up the pointcloud data.
