Innovation Technology Partners, Inc. (Innovtec) has been selected by AECOM and Massport to provide high definition laser scanning services and to subsequently generate an updated set of “as exists” models in Revit format for the Terminal E Renovations and Enhancements project at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). This upcoming project will encompass several hundred thousand square feet over multiple levels of Terminal E and will be completed on site by multiple crews and management from Innovtec. The project is set to kick-off in early May.
Occasionally, we get to escape the baggage systems, airport terminal renovations, and heavy MEP scanning to do something different. In July, we were tasked with scanning seven Bernard Maybeck designed structures at Principia College in Elsah, Illinois. Principia sits atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River to the West and is a visually stunning campus. Maybeck, a noted San Francisco Bay area architect whose works include over 150 buildings in California including The Palace of Fine Arts and Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco. These designs at Principia are one of the only works done by Maybeck outside of California and were designed during The Great Depression. In 1993, the college was designated a National Historic Landmark in recognition of Maybeck’s work.
