Stanley Beaman & Sears
Baptist wolfson tower
Jacksonville, Florida, united States
part of the Baptist Health System, the $200 million Baptist Wolfson Tower is an
extension of Wolfson children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Fla. The 11-story tower
is situated on an urban site between an interstate highway and the St. Johns
river. Within these site constraints, Stanley Beaman & Sears was challenged
to harmonize the tower architecture with the existing building and integrate
pediatric and adult patients within one building.
Three-dimensional modeling and renderings produced in microStation and
Bentley Architecture enabled the project team to study building options in context.
renderings were instrumental in securing design approvals from the city’s planning
department. Sharing the building information model with the contractor and
subcontractors accelerated shop drawing development and review. Design changes
just before construction were quickly remodeled to avoid delays.

Manette Bridge Historical documentation Visualization
Bremerton, washington, united States
The historic manette Bridge in Bremerton, Wash., is scheduled for demolition
upon completion of its replacement structure. To satisfy federal historic
recording requirements, the Washington State Department of Transportation
provided a 3D model of the existing structure. The Visual engineering resource
Group developed the model based on original plan sheets, as-built data, terrain
surveys, and liDAr point cloud data.
The Visual engineering resource Group used microStation to assemble the
model, orient the 3D structure to align with the survey cAD file, superimpose
an orthographic photo, and add 3D trees and buildings. The resulting model will
preserve the historic bridge long past its demolition. In addition, the 3D model
will be used in future animations for historical narration.
