The United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) Cadet Chapel, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is a modernist architectural icon and one of Colorado’s most-photographed landmarks. Unfortunately, 5 decades of exposure has taken its toll. In advance of a major renovation, Autodesk, Inc., worked with the USAFA to capture as-built conditions and simulate the existing performance of this building. These efforts comprise a proof of concept for the application of scan-model-analyze workflows to renovation projects. In related sessions we will discover the workflows used to carry out reality capture and building-performance analysis of this project. This session will take an in-depth look at the modeling workflow, including use of alternate data sources to resolve as-built conditions, the challenges of constructing a Revit software model to serve many competing needs, and the mechanics of using Revit Server software and third-party file storage solutions to collaborate. We will also discuss lessons learned, insights gained, and best practices.
