Laser scan of Fisherman’s Memorial in Grimsby
As part of plans to revitalise a historic part of Grimsby, our surveying team completed a laser scan of a memorial statue in St James’ Square for input into a public realm proposal. The statue, created by sculptor Trevor Harries, was unveiled in 2005 to commemorate Grimsby’s brave fisherman who were lost at sea.
Revit® model used to visualise repositioning of statue
North East Lincolnshire Council approached CADS with a request for the quick turn-around of a Revit® model of the statue. The team laser scanned the structure and within 2 days produced a 3D Revit model that could be used to show the memorial in its proposed new location within the Square. Work on the renovation project started in Autumn 2019 and will include relocating the statue to a higher plinth to allow gatherings around it for the annual memorial services.
Transformation of St James’ Square
The Council is in planning stages to transform St James’ Square into a vibrant community area that celebrates Grimsby’s heritage. Their vision is to build an enhanced environment for members of the public, creating a multi-activity space that will cater for both daily users and visitors as well as arts and cultural events.
Brilliant results all round
Dawn Brown from North East Lincolnshire Council said of the scanning work:
“Your guys were great…we have now reached a decision over the new position of the Fisherman’s Memorial and I’m happy to say brilliant results all round.”
