3D Scanning & 3D Imaging
Accurate data is critical to the success of projects, and yields wider organisational benefits.
We assist organisations by using an array of cutting-edge 3D scanning and 3D imaging tools to capture such data, eliminating reliance upon legacy information, and minimising risk. Recent technological advances make this a cost effective solution and risk mitigation option. The technologies that we use include light detection and ranging (LIDAR), laser scanning, scan to building information modelling (BIM), 3D measurement, and photogrammetry.
The 3D scans are used to check our engineering design proposals, minimising onsite delays and changes during construction, as well as provide exceptionally accurate as-built drawings that truly reflect site conditions.
Working with our survey partners, we can deliver a complete data acquisition solution that includes 3D terrestrial scans, GIS mapping, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveys, vehicle based 3D scanning, and traditional surveying.
Utilities & Process Plant
Technical plants, like refineries, process plants and production sites, are complex structures which benefit from having precise information in order to undertake engineering design modifications.
As-built drawings frequently contain errors that add risk to a project; however that risk can be eliminated using 3D scanning and 3D imaging techniques.
- Significant time and cost savings through error minimisation
- Risk mitigation in brownfield projects where access is difficult or expensive, and where schedules are tight.
- Accurate as-built documentation.
Architecture & Buildings
Public and private buildings, shopping centres, airports and railway stations can all be 3D scanned and measured with precise geometric tolerances and as-built documentation provided for operational and project management purposes.
- Efficient, simple and complete records of the as-built condition of existing properties or construction sites
- Construction progress monitoring: seamless capture and monitoring of construction progress for legal and technical documentation.
- Real-time, digital 3D data-capture and analysis of buildings, structures, materials, volumes and topography for any digital database application.
- As-built documentation: to maximise future building operation efficiency
Complete and detailed 3D scanning, 3D imaging, and 3D measurement documentation of historical and heritage structures and excavation sites is now simple and cost effective.
- Conservation: precise 3D CAD documentation for preservation and protection.
- Restoration: creation of 3D building information models (BIM) for restoration purposes, documenting and preserving the original building geometry
