Laser scanning 17 bus depots in 5 weeks

Project deliverable:

Measured survey and 2D CAD drawings

Energy efficiency upgrade

A large utility provider approached CADS to carry out laser scans on bus depots for their client, a major bus operator in the UK. The scanned information was used by the utility company to carry out an upgrade to their client’s energy meters and replace existing light fittings with more energy efficient lamps.

Part of a £1.4 million programme

The works were part of a £1.4 million programme to make 65 of the bus operator’s UK bus depots more energy efficient. The campaign also helped make the company the first major transport operator in the UK to switch to 100% renewable electricity supply.

87,000 sqm scanned in 5 weeks

The team created CAD drawings identifying all existing lighting in each depot to help facilitate the new lighting design. In total 17 bus depots amounting to 87,000 sqm were scanned in 5 weeks by our surveyors across sites in Greater London.
