3D Laser Scanning Service ? Capture Complete As-Built Field Construction Data

Posted by Calvada on October 1st, 2016

Considered the most advanced and updated among land surveying methods, 3D laser scanning is a high-definition survey technology that is known to provide swift and accurate results compared to conventional survey techniques. It is trusted by builders, project developers, and surveying architects when they need to survey land that has already been constructed but may need to be examined for destruction, remodeling, renovation, and other purposes. A 3D laser scanning service can capture complete as-built field construction data for first-time creation or updating. Likewise, it can be useful for condition and damage assessment, clash/interference checking, and 3D semi-automated modeling. 

As the name of the survey suggests, 3D laser scanning offers comprehensive 3D CAD models quickly and precisely from point clouds. This way, you can save time and effort when capturing complete as-built field construction data. As-built data is provided by the contractor upon completing a project and it reflects the changes that were made in the working drawings and specifications during construction to show the exact geometry, location, and dimensions of all the elements of the job. When gathered a using 3D laser scanning service, as-built data can be gathered quickly and accurately using an updated scanning system and reliable high-definition scanning methodology.

Surveyors use high-end software for viewing the 3D images in an HD survey. The same software can make it easier to exchange data with CAD platforms, too. High-definition 3D laser scanning offers panoramic images and measurements like markups. It can take 360 by 320-degree photo-realistic panoramic scans for a precise and exclusive look at the property. With 3D laser scanning, you can conduct deformation analysis and weld peaking reports, and have a reliable reference when conducting inspections.

Choosing the right 3D laser scanning service provider is important to ensure the best results. Make sure that the land surveyors are licensed by your state’s Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors, so you can be confident that they are hiring qualified professionals to conduct the high-definition surveying method for you. You can have a 3D laser scanning service commissioned at any time, regardless of where the project is in its developmental phase. Professional land surveyors have the most advanced 3D laser scanning equipment that can provide the results you need during the project planning or initiating phase, upgrade, or after concluding the project. Cutting-edge survey methods and technology can help ease the construction process. The 3D HD survey service is applicable to residential areas, construction areas, and industries, too.
