May 2009 - Nürnberg

Launching of the metal recycling facility at the Nuremberg harbour

After a construction period of about 12 months the metal recycling facility of Derichebourg Umwelt GmbH at the Nuremberg harbour was put into operation.

The engineering office Christofori und Partner provided the services of implementation planning, construction surveying and construction supervision. For an as-built documentation of the facility a 3D laser scan of the factory was conduced after the works had been finished.

 
 

May 2009 - Arles, France

Commissioning of a 3D laser scan of the world heritage site St. Trophime, Alres, France

The engineering office Christofori und Partner was commissioned to conduct a three-dimensional survey of the Gothic cloister of the former Benedictine abbey “Saint Trophime” in Arles. The survey by use of 3D laser scanning was conducted in May 2009. In cooperation with the American CyArk Foundation the results are published online in the digital world heritage archive Cyark.org.

April 2009 - Hilpoltstein

3D laser scan animation of the urban development concept for the surroundings of the residence in Hilpoltsein.

To visualise the urban development concept for the surroundings of the former residence in Hilpoltstein the engineering office Christofori und Partner conducted an as-built survey by use of terrestrial laser scanning. The planning model was then integrated into the point cloud resulting from the 3D laser scan and the planned setting was thereby impressively visualised.

 
 

April 2009 - Göbekli Tepe, Turkey

3D laser scan in Göbekli Tepe, Turkey

By order of the German Archaeological Institute, Berlin, the engineering office Christofori und Partner conducted a documentation accompanying the excavations of the currently oldest temple of the world, Göbekli Tepe. The age of the mountain sanctuary is estimated at no less than 11.500 years; it was presumably built even before man became sedentary. Since 1994 the German Archaeological Institute in cooperation with the museum Sanhurfa conducts excavations and does research. For the first time now a three-dimensional laser scan of the excavations was carried out.
