Historic “Tin” Building at South Street Seaport

This project involved the documentation of the historic ‘Tin’ building which is located at South Street Seaport along the East River in Manhattan. The work done by Langan was related to the planned relocation of this building to another site at the seaport. The building itself dates back to the early 1900s. Langan surveyors provided both traditional and 3D laser scanning services in support of the project. The combination of the two types of surveying allowed drawings to be generated in a much more cost effective and timely manner than would be possible otherwise. The use of 3D laser scanning made it possible to capture the many fine details of this structure.
