Halligan Coffee Building Renovation 3D Scan
The Halligan Coffee Building is in the downtown Davenport Crescent District and has views of the Mississippi River. The developer wanted to convert the warehouse built in the early 1900s to upscale apartments.
This project included historical research, scanning, plans for permit submittal and interior design for renovation of the Halligan Coffee building. Because there were no drawings available for the five-story historical building, Shive-Hattery used 3D scanning technology to scan all floors, the basement, the roof and the exterior of the structure to gain the required information for the design. A federal tax credit application for the Historical Preservation Organization was also submitted. The final renovation created 45 apartment units.
The contractor was very impressed that the drawings were more accurate than anything he had ever worked with before. He stated that he never wants to do another historical building again without getting it scanned first.
