3D Laser Scanning and As-Built Documentation

3D Laser Scanning Services for Architectural, Engineering, and Construction

Capturing the measurements of a large object or building with conventional documentation methods can take days or weeks, and even then the data might contain errors or missing details. With 3D laser scanning, laser scanners create accurate, complete, and photorealistic 3D images of any environment or object in just a few minutes.

We provide 3D laser scanning and As-built Documentation services to various segments of the industry such as Oil and Gas, Architecture, Heritage, Construction, Industrial and Manufacturing Units, Shipping and Logistics Industry, We create valuable models for planning, fabrication, feasibility studies, renovations, plant capacity expansion, retrofitting, scrubber installations, clash detection, and rebuilding important layouts

3D laser scanning of an industrial unit


1. Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) Applications
Fast, Accurate As-built Capture and Modeling - The accurate, complete data creates a strong foundation for conversions, extensions, space optimization, structural analysis, and maintenance. Our 3D scanning solutions quickly capture as-built data that reflects every detail of a real-world structure so you can accurately manage the facility and plan for future upgrades and expansions.

By supplying as-built information directly into shared files, architects, engineers and site technicians can collaborate to make smarter real-time design decisions. The result is improved flows, cost and time reductions, and enhanced safety for on-site construction personnel and the people and visitors who occupy the building.

2. Historic Preservation
Use the scanners to create 3D models of historical sites and archaeological objects for reconstruction, restoration, and conservation.

Many individuals will never get to see important historic places because they are so widely distributed over the world. Unless conservationists preserve and protect the structures from deterioration through time, future generations may not have the chance.

Building components that have been lost can be reconstructed using detailed 3D data references. 3D models allow for restoration design and help monitor movement and weathering patterns. Any structure can be protected and restored and anyone can virtually tour it for educational purposes with the 3D data from 3D scanning. 

3. Construction Quality Control
Precise laser scanning throughout the building process ensures that the final structure fits the design intent, minimizing the risk of deformations and other problems. Also, perform large-volume calculations and inspect free-form shape elements and façade components with ease. The scan data is invaluable for project supervision and collaboration across trades. 

Today’s construction industry demands complete, efficient, and accurate project documentation for quality control. Developers, owners, and general contractors need proof of progress and quality throughout construction, and crews need to capture the information fast to keep the project moving. 3D laser scanning solutions do the job in just a few minutes.

The captured 3D data can be used for quality control during excavation planning; precise positioning of concrete, columns, and other components; surface flatness analysis; and health and safety compliance. All project partners can access the same reliable data for close collaboration, further reducing the risk of errors and rework.
