Scanning for the MOA AWWU

AWWU – King Street Archives Building Expansion

BELL recently completed a surveying support project for the expansion of the Municipality of Anchorage (AWWU) Archive Building located on E 94th Court Anchorage, Alaska. Our team lead the effort for design surveying, construction staking and as-built. We also provided additional services as requested: civil engineering (existing site/demolition plan, civil site plan, grading, drainage, AG-21, erosion control, and construction details), mechanical design, and our 3D laser scanning capabilities. By scanning the whole building, inside and out, we were able to create a “Google Street View” of the project building and location. This was an accelerated schedule and was completed 60 days from NTP.


Sitzmark Bar & Grill

Location: Girdwood, Alaska

In 2012 BELL provided laser scanning services to Z-Architects to scan the inside of the Sitzmark Bar Grill located in Girdwood, Alaska. This purpose of this project was accurately dimension the ceiling area for placement of sound panels. The main issues were that the ceiling was high (accessible by scaffolding only), irregularly shaped, and had various lighting and piping hanging from it. The dimensions and conflicts of the various sections were identified using the laser scan data allowing the panels to be pre-fabricated so that the scaffolding only had to be erected for installation, thereby minimizing the disturbance to the restaurant.

BELL engineering and survey Gallo Center

Gallo Center

Location: Anchorage

The project involved developing a 3.63 acre parcel for the construction of a 47,161 s.f. multi-use commercial building with parking lot. The building phase consisted of retail suites and mechanical room on the first floor and two offices on the second floor. BELL provided topographic and as-built survey, civil engineering design, permitting and construction assistance. Engineering design drawings were prepared to meet current Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) standards and design criteria. BELL prepared the civil site plan, grading and drainage plan, erosion control plan, and design of utility service lines and storm water system. Type 3 Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) was also prepared for this project.
