Zenel House

Bayt Zainal was leased in 1949 and occupied till 1957. Since 1957, the house has been left empty. Recently, the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), leased the house and they are planning to reuse the building as the Headquarters of the SCTH. The Bayt Zainal project was divided into three main phases and sub steps. The first phase started with an images survey. The second phase was using the terrestrial laser scanning to scan the building façades from outside to inside. The third phase was to analyse the parametric modelling using architectural rules to help map 3D objects on laser scanning surveys in order to create complete 3-D BIM models of a Heritage/Existing building.
