KEITH provided civil engineering services, including water and wastewater design and permitting. Given the historic nature and history of the building, laser scanning services were also provided. Through the laser scanning process, highly accurate and long-range lasers were used to capture visible reality. Existing conditions were documented and the data can be used to create accurate as-builts, as well as being incorporated into a Building Information Model (BIM). The building is LEED certified v4 BD+C.
