DOCUMENTATION & RECORDING OF HERITAGE BUILDINGS
This presentation aims to share the experiences and know-how of deploying new technological tools and techniques in measuring 3D geometrical properties or metric information of heritage buildings in a more complete, accurate and speedy way.
Emerging technologies like terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) and digital photogrammetry will be discussed in the aspect of equipment, measurement accuracy, software solutions and implementation techniques. The session will also highlight how these technologies have revolutionised the visualization and accurate cum enduring documentation of heritage buildings.
The presentation will be demonstrated with real-life project execution methodologies and deliverables encompassing as-built drawings (façade, floor layout & section), point-cloud dataset, 3D mesh model, photo-realistic fly-thru and real-time 3D measurements in the virtual environment.

THE STORY OF 20 PYKETT AVENUE
In 2011, Malaysian heritage celebrated a victory when the Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP) very courageously exercised their discretionary powers by ordering Tetuan Klassik Tropika Development Sdn. Bhd. to rebuild the iconic double-storey, Anglo-Indian Palladian mansion at 20 Pykett Avenue owned by the late Dato Khaw Bian Cheng. Dato Khaw was the grandson of the Penang- based magnate Khaw Sim Bee (1857-1913), a former Governor of Phuket.
