A WORCESTER chartered land surveying practice will be celebrating its anniversary at one of the county’s Anglo Saxon abbeys.
CGD Ltd will be at Pershore Abbey on October 5 to mark 18 years in business.
Pershore Abbey holds a special place for the company as earlier this year it successfully completed a four month surveying project at the site.
The project involved surveying and measuring every stone at the Abbey, using the latest 3D scanning technology; the final data is currently being processed to produce a 3D model which will be shared with the Abbey’s architect.
Neil Carey, Managing Director of CGD Ltd said: “Research undertaken last year found that four in ten companies don’t make it to five years in business.
“We are therefore justifiably proud of our 18 successful years!
“Following on from our surveying project at the Abbey, we are delighted that we can use the magnificent space to showcase our cutting edge surveys with our clients.”
Due to the density of measurements over a given area, the 3D laser scanner can survey building features in incredible detail.
Plans can include accurate measurements of intricate building features that were notoriously hard to survey using traditional equipment, for example, cornice and architrave details as well as the decorated interlocking tracery of a church’s windows.
The 3D laser scanner can capture a lot of data – providing helpful contextual information – very quickly, with the brief period of on-site activity meaning there is less disruption.
Laser scanners are now the go-to measurement tools for land surveyors, with professionals such as CGD Ltd using the technology to improve data collection and project outcomes.
