Old Hattiesburg High School was constructed in 1911, and was substantially enlarged during a second phase of construction 10 years later. It served as the main high school for Hattiesburg, Miss., until 1959. Since then, the red brick, four-story building has served multiple functions in the community, including as an administration building for the Hattiesburg public schools and an art mall. It sustained damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and again in 2007 when an arsonist set fire to the first floor of the 1921 addition which led to the roof collapsing. Restoration work on the building’s front facade was stopped in 2010. Today, Wallace Architects is working to renovate the historic structure into multi-family housing.
In Their Own Words
ATG utilized a P40 Leica ScanStation to create a 3D model of the existing structure. Once the ATG team finished assembling and stitching together the point cloud, it was imported into Autodesk ReCap to create an .RCP file, exported as an .RCS file, then linked into Autodesk Revit and finally exported to AutoCAD for Wallace to use as the base for their drawings. This was the first project for Wallace Architects where they believed the laser scanning service offered by ATG was a viable fit. It helped them produce more accurate drawings as well as produce the drawing set with a much shorter overall schedule.
“ATG has proven to be a reliable partner,” Project Manager Zac Wallace said. “They have always delivered what they promised, when they promised it. Working with ATG has given us more flexibility in how we produce our work. It allows us to handle large projects without adding staff to do so.”
