The Priory Doocot in Crail is of the free standing beehive type, probably dating from the 16th century.  As part of the archaeological investigation and restoration of the structure we were commissioned to produce a comprehensive internal and external metric survey

A survey control network was established using a combination of GNSS and optical survey techniques.  Laser scanning was carried out from the survey stations using a Trimble SX10 and supplemented with free set-up scanning using a FARO S150.  Internally, to minimise occlusions in the point-cloud the FARO was raised on a 5m hydraulic pole.  Comprehensive high resolution photographic coverage was also captured

A 3D digital model was created of the Doocot from which plans and sections were created to meet the needs of the archaeologists and conservation architects.
