The Royal Canadian Yacht Club was founded in Toronto in 1852 to serve both as a recreational yachting club and, in the British tradition, as an unofficial auxiliary of the Royal Navy in the defence of the waters of Lake Ontario.
“SolidCAD’s Scan-to-BIM reality capture service was key to starting the process. The quality and detail of their Revit model was excellent. “
Peter Berton, Partner of +VG Architects
The RCYC is one of the world’s oldest and largest yacht clubs. They maintain two clubhouses in Toronto with their most recognizable summer campus on Toronto’s Centre Island and a second facility on St. George Street in the heart of the city. With a strategic plan to make improvements, RCYC hired SolidCAD to provide reality capture services that would result in accurate as-built drawings and BIM model of the existing buildings.
SolidCAD performed laser scanning of the Island Clubhouse, creating a registered point cloud from more than 95 individual scans using a high-speed Faro Focus 3D laser scanner. The data was then processed and registered using Autodesk Recap Pro and migrated into Autodesk Revit allowing the creation of a 3D parametric BIM model along as well as plans & elevations. This detailed information was given to the Architect as the basis for planning, designing and coordination of the building renovation project.
