    Facilities of all kinds and sizes get old and after years of operations and maintenance, old records that show the as-built conditions get destroyed or lost. In addition, several renovations and additions to the facility adds another layer of complexity if not documented properly. Any facility that was completed prior to the new millennium most likely involved paper-based as-built documentation. These documents are often stored away and seldom updated when changes to the facility occurred. This was the case with the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Stadium where the team is looking at a bright future that include new plans for expansions and major renovation. Such major projects require extensive design efforts that can take years, with the lack of proper and accurate as-built documentation. This massive 2,200-modeling-hours effort lead to an accurate and intricate as-built BIM model of the stadium that was created from over 575 scan-hours in just under 5 months.

    Key Learnings

    • Identify and compare reality capture and 3D modeling technologies for existing facility documentation
    • Implement a strategic plan for building documentation to facilitate future renovation/expansion needs
    • Empower owners to collaborate more efficiently and cost-effectively with design and construction teams
    • Drive creative solutions through innovative technology
