The next evolution of architectural data collection is here.

Thanks to 3D laser scanning, architectural measurement and modeling have become faster, more accurate and more detailed than ever before. Prologue is pleased to bring today’s architects these industry-changing services, conducted by a team that is highly experienced in laser scanning, modeling and data management.


Better buildings start here

Our scanning and modeling services provide an unrivaled baseline for existing conditions. From walls and windows to HVAC and plumbing, Prologue can accurately identify and document all visible elements of a structure. This data lets your team focus on design rather than modeling existing conditions.

Benefits of 3D laser scanning versus traditional measurement:


Cut Field Time 50-70%

Time spent measuring on-site is typically reduced by at least 50-70%.


Reduce Rework 12-15%

Reworks usually account for 12-15% of the cost of construction, but using laser scanning can reduce that to 1- 3%, saving money and keeping projects on schedule.


Increase Accuracy +/- 2mm

Measurement is accurate within 2mm.


Safeguard Team

No need to touch measured objects, which can safeguard both the structure and the crew.


See the Unseen

Scanning can reveal issues that would otherwise be imperceptible to the naked eye, such as a wall leaning or warping.


Survey the Unreachable

Scanning allows for the measuring of hard-to-reach objects.


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.
