Digitally tailored stabilisation measures

The monastery of Werthenstein gracefully sits atop the Kleine Emme in the canton of Lucerne. But the impressive sight is misleading: the rock on which the monastery was built in 1636 is increasingly eroding.

Whole blocks are at risk of falling down. Basler & Hofmann tackled the rock digitally. A drone accurately mapped its surface and provided the basis for a precise 3-D model, which enabled the planners to accurately tailor their stabilisation measures, from concrete disks to cover nets, to the rock and thus ensure a high level of planning security for this unusual object.
