Fast, accurate 3D laser scanning
3D laser scanning is a non-intrusive solution using LiDAR technology (Light Detection and Ranging) that captures three-dimensional information of building fabric, building services, and land/topography. Compared to traditional survey methods, 3D laser scanning is precise, comprehensive and offers a significant reduction in time and resource, particularly for more complex buildings. LiDAR is a fast and accurate approach and can be used in a wide range of environments and conditions. The point cloud data produced from this method is ideal for mapping in construction projects.
At ScanTech Digital we select the laser scanning technology based on your desired outcomes and, by surveying your asset inside and out from hundreds of different positions, we generate a point cloud model. We post-process the data to clean and register it and add site co-ordinates. From this, 3D architectural models and virtual walk-throughs can be produced, model validation can also be carried out to verify existing models with the point cloud, giving you enhanced information in much more detail than traditional 2D technical plans.
