Commercial, Residential, Infrastructure, Local Government

Our engineers, surveyors, planners and project managers thoroughly examine all options to identify the most robust and effective solutions for our clients.

With Envivo you can be sure your development plans are a success on every level.

We are excited by the new Google satellite imagery for the Auckland area. This new view of our largest city is only weeks old, we’ve created a short Google Earth Tour of some of the apartment sites we at Envivo are working on click here.  We have plenty more in progress…

Envivo has been involved in the early stages of redeveloping a historic site in Auckland. The old factory had been originally used as a car assembly plant and is now being renovated to include offices and apartments.

Before any work can commence it’s important to know exactly what is on-site. The Envivo team have been busy working on:

  • Topographical Survey
  • Planning Feasibility Report
  • Land Use Consent (LUC) – Subdivision
  • Partial Redefinition Survey
  • Scanning & 3D modelling

Laser Scanning and 3D Modelling is an increasingly popular option for developers because of the rich information captured on the site. In this case it was perfect for bringing the site to our client’s desk.  We:

  • Scanned the internal geometry of all structures, including the roof space, as specified by the client
  • Applied survey control from a local datum
  • Generated and registered point cloud
  • Modelled relevant geometry as agreed to LOD300, in this case Revit 2015 model derived from point cloud data
  • Delivered integrated Navisworks Freedom 2015 viewer (integrated with survey data). We provide a viewer installation service if needed.
  • Delivered Webshare Photometric viewer, 360° photometric viewer

Mark Finlayson, Survey Director, said “historic buildings are beautiful but they can also be tricky. As the building was not built to today’s standards there are often issues in terms of verticality and flatness. If plans are available there are often easily observable discrepancies in what the plans say and what is actually on site. Our survey-accurate models can now be used by all stakeholders to ensure the new designs are going to work. The architect, structural designer, project managers, engineers etc. can be sure they’re all working on the same data set. ”
