After UMC’s Major Projects team completed a two-year system repair and replacement, UMC’s Reality Capture team was brought in to document the upgraded mechanical room.

The King County Correctional Facility (KCCF) is a 24/7 secured, 17-floor building with approximately 400,000 SF that was originally constructed in 1986. KCCF houses more than 1,000 people every day and includes a homeless shelter. When King County executives declared an emergency and waiver allowing for an immediate repair and replacement of domestic cold, hot, and hot recirculation water system throughout KCCF, UMC was hired to replace the piping throughout the 17-floors.
UMC’s Project Manager led the systems repair and replacement of six tanks in a calculated sequence of alternating tanks to ensure the facility did not have a lapse in water pressure. Upon project completion, White tapped the UMC Reality Capture team to secure accurate and detailed scans of the level six mechanical room that could be designed into as-built drawings to document the progress that took place over the course of the two-year project. The scanning took two days using the Leica RTC360, and with the data available, UMC was able to create as-built drawings of the new and improved mechanical room. Talk about collaboration!
