Trimble SX10 – Scanning The Old Wallsend Fire Station, North Tyneside
The fire station, a Grade II listed building built circa 1908. A nostalgic site for me personally as my father, a fireman for 30 years in Wallsend was stationed here in the 1980’s and I have so many fond memories visiting as a child.
We’ve used the Trimble SX10 on multiple projects now due to the Trimble Access workflow being super user friendly. This means little to no training for our staff is required and this piece of kit seamlessly integrates alongside our existing Trimble hardware. On this occasion we also had the added benefit of having Steve Cannon & Dominic Gregory on site from Korec. This allowed us to explore all the additional features this bit of kit can offer and there are many!
Being able to set up over existing survey control points, collect scan data as well as collecting information for a Topographical Survey in a traditional manner with the detail pole is so refreshing. All this without the need for checker boards, domes and the registration of such back in the office. On site the SX10 performs, the data capture process is simple and efficient. Back in the office it becomes even more apparent, the seamless transition of the point cloud from Trimble Business Centre to AutoDesk Recap and onward to Revit for modelling, flawless.
Finally a scanner which is also a true total station more than capable of holding its own in either field.
