Report
February 2014
Scope
• Seismic Retrofit of Building
• Replacement of three, 40 MW
Generating Units
• Replacement of all Mechanical and
Electrical Systems
• Rehabilitation of Tunnels
• Regrading Abutment Slope/Road
Relocation
• Intake Gates/Draft Tube Gate Addition
• Architectural Upgrades and Finishes
Challenges
• Old Facility with Poor Construction Documentation
• Confined and Cramped Powerhouse
• Operating Powerplant During Construction - Phased Construction
3D Visual Design Aids
• 3D Survey
– High Definition Survey (Laser Scan) of Powerhouse
– TruView – Overlay 3D Point Cloud on Panoramic photo - identify points/
measure distances.
• 3D Design
– REVIT – 3D Design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Powerhouse
M&E Design
– Navisworks - Clash Detection
– Civil 3D
– Autodesk 360 – Cloud Rendering
High Definition Survey (HDS) - Laser Scan
• Triad Associates (Kirkland, WA) – 4 Man Crew
• Full Survey - 5 Days
• 290 Setups - Inside and Outside
• Cost $130,000
• Deliverable- 3D Point Cloud with Leica TruView
• 3D Model Generation -$80,000
Benefits
• Precision Measurements (± 6 mm)
• Full 3D Point Cloud - All Areas
• Measurements at your FingertipsFewer Visits to Site
• Verification with As Builts - Overlay on
Theoretical Model to Identify
Discrepancies

• Underwater laser scanner technology by Newton
Labs captures as-built measurements with submillimeter precision, as well as being able to
quantify cracks, rust, wear, fissures, corrosion,
weld deterioration, pitting and other deformities.
• Similar in use to air laser scanners, the Newton
Underwater Laser Scanner is tuned for the
aquatic environment and produces a dense point
cloud easily converted into a CAD model using
industry standard software.
