A Distinct AdvantageKeeping a project on schedule and on budget is crucial for a successful outcome. Prologue’s services provide the baseline data necessary to sharpen your bid numbers, lower contingency costs and avoid rework.
Giving you the control of quality.
We are not BIM; we make BIM work.
Keeping your projects on time and on budget.
The best steel framing of structures can look deceiving. 3D laser scanning can highlight areas where steel framing is misplaced, deviating from plans, or not installed at all. It will also reveal when the beams have been installed according to plan to assure the best quality construction.
The best designed plans are only as good as their in-field results. 3D laser scanning exposes clashes in BIM by overlaying real conditions with BIM plans. We provide precise data that shows where site conditions differ from optimal plans. Empower the design team with the information that they need before and during the design process to create the most accurate and complete set of plans.
Capital projects inevitably come with unforeseen complications. Prologue erases uncertainty with our state-of-the-art technology that captures data of existing on-site conditions to avoid in-field surprises. Keeping a project on schedule and on budget is crucial for a successful outcome. Prologue’s services provide the baseline data necessary to sharpen your bid numbers, lower contingency costs, and avoid setbacks.
3D Laser Services From Prologue
3D Laser Scanning
Using a 3D laser scanner, our team can collect remote measurements of large areas with an extraordinary accuracy of up to 2mm. This scanner collects up to 976,000 measurement points per second, allowing us to accurately identify and document all visible elements of a structure in a fraction of the time it would take with manual measurement. For most laser scanning projects, the time required to capture the data on-site is reduced by at least 50-70% compared to traditional survey methods.
In other words, it's time to put down the tape measure.
Data, Extraction, Modeling & Export
Using the virtualized 3D site as a guide, our modelers can swiftly generate accurate and up-to-date as-built models in Autodesk® Revit®. Since our team works with hard data—instead of manual measurements, notes and hand drawings—the time and cost spent on modeling is typically a fraction of the manual approach. And since the project’s architects don’t have to worry about modeling as-built conditions, they’re able to place their focus on design.
Once our team has completed the model, it can be viewed from any perspective to see detailed elements within the structure. The model is then delivered in the format that best suits the client’s needs. Typical formats include Revit models, CAD drawings, orthophotos and point clouds.
