Researchers in the Building Digitalization research track focus on developing techniques for capturing or mapping detailed physical characteristics of historic structures. Students will carry out research using:
- terrestrial and low-cost aerial surveying, including 3D scanning, thermal photography and photogrammetry;
- building information modelling (BIM);
- coupling life-cycle assessment with BIM;
- real-time simulation;
- geographic information systems;
- scene and motion capture; and
- possible augmented reality applications.
This research can be used to develop a methodology for building rehabilitation, either for maintenance or to ensure a record for posterity in the event of destruction.
