St. Louis, MO | Commercial
The Robert A. Young Federal Building, (sometimes referred to as the RAY building,) was built in 1931 and stands twenty stories tall. The building provides functional office space for many federal agencies.
A detailed façade analysis was performed for a condition assessment of the windows and to define any major cracking or movement of brickwork.
Nearly 300 scans were taken to provide an accurate depiction of the façade, with most of the scanning performed from the ground level. Access to the rooftops of this building as well as adjacent structures allowed for successful documentation of the higher floors.
Within a matter of 5 days this entire building was captured by means of laser scanning. A total of 15 working days were required from initial scanning to the final product of 2-D drawings.
