BANBURY FAS – Ground modelling
We are currently working on the 3d ground model of the Cherwell Country Park in Key Terra Firma and Sketchup to form an accurate representation of the current ground conditions on site. The area illustrated was extensively quarried for clay which was used to construct the flood embankment core. Over 170,000 metres cubed of material was dug out. Consequently reinstatement back to the original condition would be costly as a large amount of material would have to be imported to fill the void left. Topographical surveys and 3d ground models have been produced to aid in identifying areas where existing stockpiles of waste material produced by the Banbury FAS scheme could be positively used. The model has aided the design process in determining primary areas where ground work will be required and the most accessible routes around the Cherwell Country Park.
