Built in 1928 by architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, Rockefeller Memorial Chapel is an ecclesiastical building and a Chicago Landmark located on the University of Chicago’s Hyde Park campus. Rockefeller Chapel is 265 feet long and 102 feet wide at its widest point. The interior ceiling of the chapel is 79 feet from the floor, while the tower portion stands 207 feet high and can be ascended via a spiral stone staircase of 271 steps. The walls contain 72,000 pieces of Indiana limestone, and the ceiling is decorated with 100,000 pieces of colored Guastavino tile.

In 2016, ZS was retained by the University to perform laser scanning of the exterior and interior of the chapel including adjacent landscape. The laser scan data was registered to the University’s coordinate system by utilizing surveyed control points.  ZS also developed an as-built Building Information Model (BIM) utilizing the point cloud as a 3-dimensional underlay. The University is planning on using the resulting BIM to enhance facility management operations performance.
