New Zealand map Davis Ogilvie – Engineering, Surveying and Planning

Grosvenor Hotel, Timaru


The Grosvenor hotel is one of Timaru’s many heritage buildings, being around 140 years old.

Davis Ogilive was engaged by the client to provide a seismic assessment for the purpose of earthquake strengthening, including the preparation of a set of existing building plans. Because of the age of the building no building plans existed so a 3D laser scan of the facade of the building was undertaken after establishing control marks via conventional survey methods. The point cloud data was processed and used and reduced to a format that was able to be interpreted by the client.
