Oakbrook Center - Oakbrook, Illinois


Mayfair Mall Wauwatosa, WisconsinThis three-level, open-air retail center is undergoing a major facelift inside and out. R.A. Smith National is providing site design and surveying services to General Growth Properties (GGP). For the survey work on the interior of the mall, 3D laser scanning was used as a survey tool to collect millions of data points (point clouds) for a complex array of existing features. In addition to conventional survey deliverables which were partially extracted from the scans, the point cloud data and an immersive point cloud viewing application (TruView) were provided to allow the architect, general contractor and all other team members to interactively navigate the scan data. TruView is a user-friendly 3D web-based viewing, measurement, and markup tool, and has proven to be invaluable throughout the redesign process in that the design team is able to access additional dimensionally accurate, as-built information without having to revisit the site.
