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.
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.
