ATFF provides Scan-to-BIM services using ReCap and Revit for a hospital renovation in the French Alps

The Project

The Aiguilles-Queyras Hospital Center is a 20,000-square meter facility in Aiguilles, France. Located in the French Alps, the facility has the highest altitude of any hospital in France. A renovation project is underway to accommodate more out-patient procedures, provide additional short-stay beds, and support upgraded security standards.
