3d Laser Scan of Front Elevation

Standing within 22.5 acres of mature Derbyshire grounds and offering superb views across the Derwent Valley, a Grade II listed country house provided the perfect location for a spot of 3d laser scanning.

EA were commissioned to produce a full measured building survey of the property, which was once modestly described by the architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner (1902-83) as ‘quite stately’. EA utilised both total station and 3d laser scanner technology to ensure a high level of detail and accuracy.

Full plans, sections and elevations were provided in AutoCAD format. The fine exterior and interior detailing was extracted from the 3d laser scan models.

The external 3d laser scan images capture the fine fenestration and exceptional detail of the Palladian architecture to the principle elevations.

While the exterior is impressively handsome, the interior hides all the Rococo charm.

In particular, the drawing room is adorned with wood carvings, theatrical ceiling and a splendid mantelpiece by the master wood carver, Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721).

Gibbons was considered by many to be the finest wood carver of all. Indeed, Gibbons was employed by such eminent and noble dignitaries as Sir Christopher Wren and King Charles II for work on St Paul’s Cathedral and Windsor Castle respectively.
