Boston Valley Uses Photogrammetry on 36 Gramercy Park

Boston Valley Terra Cotta begins work on the historic 36 Gramercy Park.

36 Gramercy Park is a unique residential building that overlooks New York’s most famous private park. Designed by James Reily Gordon and building between 1908 and 1910, 36 Gramercy Park  features a hand crafted white glazed terra cotta facade that brightens the surrounding neighborhood with its grand sculptural Gothic styling.

Here at Boston Valley we are scanning samples of the historic facade that were removed from the building with our in house 3D scanner. In addition to this technique, we are also using photogrammetry, a process of scanning photographs from the on site surveys to create assembly drawings of portions of the facade. This enables us to record more accurate measurements of these original assemblies. One of these assembly drawings is represented below. It is part of the bay window cladding area and can be seen in the photo of the building above.
