Under time pressure with fixed deadlines to apply for the building safety fund, Greenwich Millennium Village Limited, supported by Antony Patrick Associates (Project Managers), required measured surveys of 15 buildings. This was made particularly challenging by the height of the buildings and lack of visibility from ground level.
Spatial Dimensions were instructed in May, with a closing date for the tender application of 31st July 2021. Failure to hit the deadline would have meant a missed application and potentially missing out on millions of pounds of government funding.
In the March 2020 budget, the government announced that it would provide £1 billion in funding through the Building Safety Fund between 2020 and 2021, to support the remediation of unsafe non-ACM cladding systems on residential buildings of 18 metres and over, in both the private and social housing sectors.
Spatial Dimensions completed the measured surveys works of 15 blocks at Greenwich Millennium Village, using laser scanners to capture the elevation and roofs. The scans were controlled to Ordnance Survey datum & grid to establish correct building heights as the funding would only be available to buildings over 18M.
The project was challenging due to the height of the buildings and construction that meant several high-level elevations were obscured from ground level.
A drone was deployed and photogrammetry to capture the high-level elevation and roof information.
The project was delivered on time, to an extremely satistied client.
