3D Surveys Point Cloud Scanning
The benefits of BIM are widely publicised and in relation to new build projects, consultants and contractors alike are already successfully working towards its adoption right from the conception stage through to estate management.

To develop the use of BIM in full or partial refurbishment and repair projects, the starting point is an accurate 3D existing building information model. When coupled with a 3D BIM approach to the design process, laser scans taken at intervals throughout the construction phase of a project enable a detailed record as well as accurate monitoring of a structure as it is assembled.

The point cloud information produced by the laser scanner can be used by designers, design managers and BIM coordinators to provide real-time analysis against proposals and clash detection to prevent costly onsite construction variations.
