Survey and 3D Scanning


The NSW Government’s $835 million John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct project will transform healthcare services for Newcastle, the greater Hunter region and northern NSW communities.  Infrastructure will be delivered to support the expansion of clinical and non-clinical services and will increase the capacity at the John Hunter and John Hunter Children’s Hospitals.

Monteath & Powys were engaged to complete a full survey of the entire hospital site to enable planning and design of the development. 3D scanning was required to capture external features such as windows, balconies, facades and other features which may impact on the interface between the new and existing infrastructure.

Cadastral boundaries were also an important aspect of the survey, accurately determining the location of all boundaries and easements throughout the site. This will enable ongoing boundary adjustments and easements to reflect the end development. Preservation of survey infrastructure plans will also be required as part of the development.

Underground service models were also created and incorporated into the overall spatial data set to allow design of new services connecting to existing and surrounding infrastructure.
