Unsafe Conditions and
The Model T Building is a former Ford Motor Company factory located in Highland Park, MI. From 1910 to 1927, the Highland Park Ford plant was the site where the iconic Model T automobile was manufactured, and it served as the headquarters of the Ford Motor Company. It was at this plant that the first moving assembly line was introduced, as well as the 5-dollar work day.
PMC's scanning experts documented physical historical evidence of existing conditions in this long-abandoned building. Our safety-trained staff carefully scanned the challenging structure, then made a 3D model in Revit. By leveraging captured data to provide online virtual walkthroughs to our client, we were able to minimize the number of their people who needed to access the site; and by utilizing Scan-to-BIM, we provided our client with an as-built model for planning restoration.
Scan data allows for a virtual walkthrough of an unsafe building, thereby minimizing the risks associated with real-life visits.

Point cloud data modeled into a 3D realistic render.
Laser scanning documented all conditions in order to ensure an accurate 3D model.
PMC field teams were able to safely scan the complex structure and to create an as-is model in Revit.
