Digitally Preserving Historic Church in Narberth with 3D Laser Scanners and Drones

On April 2, 2019, DJS Associates, Inc., a forensic engineering consulting firm in Abington, PA, will be providing, pro bono, their expertise in 3D laser scanning and drone technology to digitally preserve the Baptist Church of the Evangel in Narberth, PA.  Utilizing this state-of-the-art technology, the DJS team is able to collect highly accurate interior and exterior three-dimensional measurements of the church in a fraction of the time required by more traditional methods. 

Jon Adams, Director of 3D Reality Capture* at DJS, was drawn to the church by its
19th century Gothic Revival design, large stained-glass windows, and its high risk for demolition.  “Dr. Kathleen Abplanalp of the Lower Merion Conservancy put me in touch with the owner, Jason Gordon.  Upon learning about the speed, accuracy, and effectiveness of 3D documentation, Jason was eager to work with us to document the church before moving forward with any remodeling efforts.  We look forward to this opportunity to document another historical landmark, allowing it to live on for future generations.” – Jon Adams.

To learn more about this project, or additional historical preservation projects completed by DJS Associates, Inc., contact Lauren Latzko, Marketing Coordinator, at 215-659-2010 or lat@forensicDJS.com.
 
*Reality capture is the activity of quickly and effectively collecting the best, most accurate data about real-world conditions.  The most common type of reality capture uses laser scanners and UAV photogrammetry to produce simple images or 3D point clouds.
