Asteri Ithaca Building
Ithaca, New York
MJ provided construction stakeout services, including horizontal and vertical survey control along with high-definition laser scanning (LiDAR) for the new Asteri Building in downtown Ithaca, New York. The 12-story building has a 22,000 SF ground floor footprint with a conference center on the bottom three levels and 181 affordable housing units above totaling 200,000 SF. MJ was contracted at the start of the 9th floor construction to perform detailed high-density colored scans of each floor using a Faro Focus SWIFT system along with the VLX SLAM mobile mapper acquisition. The final point cloud data, and the 360° panoramic photos collected were deployed into our MJ4D web viewer. MJ4D is a SaaS (software-as-a-service) developed by MJ which enables clients to view, measure and interact with immersive digital twin data via a web browser. This data was used by project architects to verify walls and sleeves are aligned from floor to floor for utility installations. Survey layout was then performed immediately after slab pours for pre-fabricated wall panels.
