Building Alteration/Renovation Services Macy’s/Starbuck’s, John Wannamaker Building, Center City Philadelphia, PA: This Starbucks project required a unique approach. The photos shown are of the world famous John Wannamaker building in Center City. Macy’s wanted a “destination” type café for their customers and Starbuck’s was the perfect partner for this venture; however Starbuck’s needed to maintain an independent exterior presence as well. The result was subtle conversion of one of the display windows into an exterior entrance. Due to the historic nature of the building, Bohler assisted our Clients in achieving both their goals while preserving and maintaining the historic quality of the building. After Before
Building Alteration/Renovation Services Potbelly Sandwich Works, 1200 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA: Bohler provided design/permitting assistance for the exterior restoration and tenant installation of a new sandwich deli. This project involved design and permitting of a new exterior ADA ramp/stair to overcome a +/- 2’-0” grade differential. After Before

BIM Modeling White Plains Hospital Cath Lab Interior Survey Approximately 5000 s.f. Field:
Leica C10 HDS Laser Scanner
16 hours of Field time to Produce the point cloud
7 hours of Tech time to register point cloud and create truview
5 Hours in CloudWorx for Topographic Plan Creation
0.5 Hours to Clean-up and Plot Topographic Plan
6 Hours in CloudWorx for Elevation View Plan Creation
Laser Scan Surveying & Optional Deliverables Control Point Associates / Bohler Engineering will utilize a Leica C10 HDS (High Definition Scanner) to perform multiple scans for the interior or exterior project areas. The resulting scan will produce a point cloud comprised of millions of data points with an accuracy of 1/8th of an inch or greater.
This point cloud may be utilized to produce a wide range of deliverables. These can range in complexity and accuracy from a simple 2 dimensional floor plan to a complex 3 dimensional intelligent BIM (Building Information Model) deliverable, depending on the client's needs.
Level and Complexity of Deliverables WHO is going to be using the scan data? Architects and Construction Managers that require exact measurements and deliverables in Revit format or marketing and other less technical users that only need the data presented in its simplest form or in a the more common AutoCad format.
WHAT is the purpose of the laser scan? New Construction, Interior Modifications, Space Planning or MEP projects? Marketing Materials for Prospective Tenants/Buyers or Building Façade Scans for Historic Preservation…
WHERE is the scanning technology used? The scans are used anywhere inside, outside or near your space of building. An individual office, utility room, basement, lobby, plenum, roof or parking lot all go thru changes and alterations that require permanent plans at the greatest level of accuracy.
WHEN will the scan information be used? This technology has been available for 10+ years, but only recently has the industry begun to treat it as the technology of choice for surveying. Most prominent Architects, Construction Managers, Contractors and Engineers have begun utilizing and often requiring laser scanning to dramatically speed delivery, reduce errors in measurements and cost overruns. The data will be used for all future building operations, potentially as long as the building remains standing.
HOW is the scan to be used? Basic modeling or for technical drawings for precise Cost Estimating and Project Permitting
Levels of Development (LOD) First Niagara Bank: First Niagara Bank expanded into the Philadelphia market late in 2009, when they purchased Harleysville National Bank. Many of the branch locations did not have any building plans or site survey plans associated. Bohler was able to rapidly initiate and complete base building measurements and develop building area plans and photo location plans so that the Client could better understand and analyze each branch included in the purchase.
Exterior Site Services Bohler Engineering’s experience in Architectural Engineering is not limited to building design. Often times land development teams require retaining wall design to be included within the site design package. Bohler provides these design services “in-house” for our Clients, thus saving both time and money during the design process. Concrete Retaining Wall Segmental Retaining Wall
