Attic conversions
Rise to cloud no. 9 with Bogensberger.

In cities, vacant spaces are rare and inner-city locations are expensive. The existing space must therefore be put to better use. The key word here is re-densification. A logical consequence of this is the boom in attic conversions. Except, who can say if a building was constructed exactly to plans 100 years ago and what may have changed later? Precise measuring of the attic to be converted is therefore vital. And expeditious, economic recording is a matter of course for Bogensberger. This is the only way to bring plans from their target state to their current state so that current construction standards can be met and expensive planning mistakes avoided.

The plan of yesteryear.

The buildings to be expanded are mostly between 50 and 150 years old and the available plans are almost always from a bygone era. The planning documents are mostly plans for submission or execution and show the target state as opposed to the current state. The problem is that, in those days, discrepancies in the decimetre range were common in construction. Accurate knowledge of the existing building geometry is important especially with regard to the high pre-fabrication level of steel or timber frame constructions in attic conversions. This is the only way to pre-emptively avoid expensive surprises arising from planning mistakes over the course of a conversion.

Pin-point perfection.

Even critical planning authority topics and historical preservation constitute important aspects of professional surveying. Building heights as well as protected roof constructions, which must remain in place in extensions, should also be clarified in advance. We also offer an efficient and cost-saving solution to this: 3D laser-scanning. Through laser-scanning and subsequent 3D modelling of the existing roof beam elements, a simple and new steel or timber construction can be precisely "interwoven" with the existing beams in CAD and later on the construction site. See for yourself!

It's better to look a few million times.

Compared with the "Gründerzeit" (a period of rapid industrial expansion in Germany and Austria from 1850 to 1914), it is now possible to map the current state of a building or roof structure with hitherto unknown efficiency and attention to detail thanks to precise measuring instruments, measuring methods and regression analyses. A laser-scanner makes all the difference. The scanner records complex geometries and maps them in precise 3D pointclouds at up to one million points per second. Afterwards, only the desired sections and views need to be defined, or a 3D CAD model created. It can be that easy.
