Case Study

The Valley Leisure Park in Bolton, Greater Manchester


The challenge at hand was to create a highly detailed 3D model of The Valley Leisure Park in Bolton, Greater Manchester, which could be used for various purposes, including future development planning, promotional materials, and park management. 


To address this challenge, we implemented a comprehensive solution using a DJI M300 RTK drone and Zenmuse P1 camera, combined with Agisoft and Revit software. This allowed us to capture precise aerial imagery, process it with photogrammetry software, and generate a detailed BIM and 3D Modeling model of the park.


The project team used a holistic approach to create a detailed 3D model of The Valley Leisure Park. They used a DJI M300 RTK drone with a Zenmuse P1 camera to capture aerial images of the park. These images were processed using Agisoft photogrammetry software to create a digital point cloud. The point cloud, reality capture for the 3D model and Revit software for the final BIM model This resulted in a versatile BIM model of the park that can be used for a variety of applications, including development planning, promotion, management, simulations, and augmented/virtual reality.

We transform construction using BIM and advanced technology, offering precise design, efficient coordination, and seamless facility management through drones, Agisoft, Rock, DJI Terra, Capture Reality and Revit.

BIM-powered projects leverage cutting-edge technology to enhance construction processes. This technology stack typically includes drones, software like Agisoft and Revit, and laser scanners. Drones are used for data collection and site monitoring, while Agisoft, Reality Caputure and Revit play crucial roles in creating and maintaining 3D models and BIM integration. Laser scanners are often used for precise measurements. Together, these technologies revolutionize the construction industry by providing real-time data, accurate visualizations, and comprehensive records for efficient project management.

3D models are essential components of modern construction projects. They provide a detailed, visual representation of the building or infrastructure, offering invaluable insights during the design and planning phases. These models help identify potential issues early, reducing costly surprises during construction. Moreover, 3D models facilitate efficient construction coordination by centralizing project information, optimizing collaboration, and minimizing errors. Post-construction, 3D models serve as the foundation for facility management, ensuring comprehensive records of components, systems, and maintenance requirements. Their ability to streamline every phase of a construction project makes them an indispensable tool for the industry.

BIM serves as a versatile tool that extends beyond just asset management. While it's invaluable for asset management, it also plays a crucial role in design and planning, construction coordination, and facility management. BIM enables the creation of detailed 3D models that provide visualizations during the design phase. It optimizes construction coordination by centralizing project information and reduces errors. Post-construction, BIM models are invaluable for facility management. They contain comprehensive records of components, systems, and maintenance requirements.

BIM enhances construction coordination by providing a centralized platform for all project-related information. It allows real-time data integration, ensuring that stakeholders have up-to-date information on the construction site's condition and project progress. This minimizes miscommunications and errors, improving overall project efficiency. BIM also includes collaboration tools for stakeholders to share and comment on models, facilitating better communication and coordination throughout the project.
