High Definition 3D Laser Scanning Services

Construction Site Layout

If you are an architect, engineer, developer or real estate professional, the project site should be scanned at the very conception of the project. If the site has challenging elevational changes, a high definition laser scan model in 3D can prove to be invaluable. The proposed buildings can be inserted into the model to determine the effect of local planning restrictions (heights, setbacks, etc.). Cut and fill calculations can also be made to avoid costly export or import of fill materials. The potential cost savings, by elimination of potential unforeseen errors or oversights, is well worth the investment of the Laser Scanning Service.

Building and Architecture

A 3D scan and model of an existing building which is to be remodeled, extended or altered in any way will be very beneficial for architects and engineers. This scan data can inserted into the new construction model to ensure a seamless fit. Current Architectural practice is to utilize BIM (Building Informational Modeling), which is produced from scanned Point Cloud Data, which is in turn, converted into extremely precise 3D models of the project. From this model highly accurate, real-time measurements can be extracted, eliminating the necessity of multiple onsite inspections. Depending on the amount of detail required, the model can also be utilized for “clash detection” as well. Clash detection on a structural level is used to determine where to move penetrations in the existing structure. Thereby avoiding load bearing columns, girders and the like.

MEP Coordination

3D models produced by interior scans of a new/existing building are extremely beneficial for coordinating future Mechanical/Electrical /Plumbing (MEP) services. Documentation of systems prior to concrete slab pours, installation of drop ceilings, or burying conduit, piping or cabling facilitates less labor intensive locating in the future.

As-built in 3D

As-built in 3D

A 3D scan of existing structures, homes, or facilities, provides extremely accurate as-built conditions. Documentation of these items, prior to the advent of 3D scanning, was done with 2D drawings, updated by hand, which were very labor intensive, costly, and notoriously inaccurate. 3D scanning to provide As Built Conditions is extremely accurate and cost effective.

Historical Documentation

3D scanning for the Historical documentation of buildings, structures, or locations prior to any renovations, earthquake retrofits, or demolition preserves the as built conditions prior to any such work. This process is essentially “archiving” the subject for any number of uses, be it informational or interactive.
