Activate The Power of Information Like Never BeforeIn order to make smart decisions, you need all of the facts. Over the years, most structures and systems have been modified without documentation. Our 3D laser scanning and modeling services deliver an accurate picture of what reality is. Using a 3D laser scanner, our team can collect remote measurements of large areas with extraordinary accuracy in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional methods.
Data That Works:
- Uncover building flaws
- Detect issues early and resolve them quickly
- Use point cloud visualization of proposed structures, equipment and plans
- Identify floor sag and wall lean
- Confirm true as-built conditions
- Understand beforehand where you will incur additional expenses
- Increase efficiency and reduce errors between contractors, engineers and subcontractors
- Reduce financial risk
Limited Revenue Losses:
Increased Productivity Now, and Later:
The more difficult the job, the higher the risk. Financial loss on a project can take many forms—from excessive outage times to extended schedules resulting in exposing the owners to unpredictable risk. 3D laser scanning can reduce total installed cost for renovation projects by 5-7% and has reduced contingencies for rework to less than 2% compared to traditional survey methods.
3D laser scanning delivers high quality data that can be utilized beyond the life of the job. Archiving the data from the millions of points that the scans create has implications for future projects in the form of reduced field changes, resurveys and rework, thereby increasing productivity. Prologue is equipped to store your project's data safely and securely, making it accessible to you when you need it.
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.
