A major focus of the restoration of Union Terminal is repairing the structural steel and upgrading mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Until brick and limestone are removed or walls are opened up, those pieces of the project remain a relative mystery, making it difficult to accurately budget or plan for the work to be done. However, new technology, paired with Union Terminal’s original blueprints, has eliminated those blind spots. 3D scanning technology has provided a digital blueprint to guide architects and construction crews as they planned for and begin to execute the work on those spaces.
And now you can see through walls in a virtual x-ray of Union Terminal’s steel skeleton and the HVAC systems that snake through the building. By clicking the links below or scanning the QR codes with your phone, you can take a 360 tour of inside the walls using the same technology architects and construction crews are using to repair and restore Union Terminal.
