HBIM model of the church of Saint Barbara in Bois du Luc

The last few years the Building Information Modeling process improved through the development of innovative technology and approaches of working practices, especially in the field of documentation of cultural heritage. In this study, a Historic Building Information Model (HBIM) of the church of Saint Barbara of Bois de Luc (La Louvière, Belgium) was created using 3D laser scanner data. This work is conducted by Zühal Duran in the framework of her master thesis. The aim of the research is to verify the feasibility of a virtual reality model by implementing it to an existing complex structure. The laser scanner data was collected in the survey campaign in March 2016.
