State Capital Restoration

Surveying at the Utah State Capital Dome
David Evans and Associates combined Leica HDS with conventional methods for great cost and schedule benefits on this large building restoration project. Sean Douthett tells the story of surveying the Utah State Capital Dome in an in depth, 9-page article that appeared in the June 2006 issue of American Surveyor magazine.
Article Excerpt:

"It was a dark November evening; it was snowing, and our survey crew was more than 200-feet in the air atop the Utah State Capital Dome, freezing.  David Eveans and Associates, Inc. (DEA) had been contracted to provide as-built drawings for the restoration of the historic capital dome.  This task presented several challenges ranging from how to meet the accuracy requirements and tight schedule to how to collect and convey the data in a useful format.  DEA responded by using a combination of laser scanning and conventional survey methods to provide highly accurate and easily usable data on a tight timeline."
