HDS aids construction of World Cup stadium

Surveying technology was used in the construction of the new Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban
The July 2010 issue of PositionIT magazine details how surveying technology was used in the construction of the spectacular, new Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. The project took advantage of Leica Geosystems High-Definition Surveying technology for critical as-builts of the stadium's oval array of 102 giant concrete columns.
The columns were used to support the stadium's facade, the beams for which were fabricated after the columns were erected. Scanning was done by Precision Engineering Geomatics using their versatile HDS3000 scanner (a predecessor to today's Leica ScanStation C10) in just 2 1/2 days. Deliverables included as-built 3D models of all columns in AutoCAD, including horizontal sections every 1m vertically and 5 horizontal sections 200mm apart at each beam tie-in zone.
