LASER SCANNING

Michigan-State-Capital

Over the past decade, our team of specialists has advanced the art and science of high-definition surveying to become a leader in the Midwest. We excel at the technical deployment and innovative deliverables available through this laser scanning. This service is Ideal for measuring or gathering data associated with complex and historical structures; renovations and construction projects; material and volume calculations; and other large, challenging environments. Using laser technology we create a 3D model of the structure with a 360° visualization, as well as stored, accessible data for current and future use.
Laser scanning also increases safety in hard-to-access areas, while generating data compatible with AutoCAD, Microstation and BIM software. Laser technology also minimizes disruption to sensitive environments such as historic structures, forensic environments, and high-traffic or hazardous areas such as roadways, tunnels and bridges.

Case Studies

package_dist-678x440-433x358

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS
Performed over 225 high definition, colorized laser scans in a package distribution center
Created Autodesk Factory Design Suite model of 55,000 square feet. Model existing infrastructure including conveyor systems, ladders, catwalks, walls, structural elements, piping conduit, roof, and floor
Scanorama images included with point cloud for virtual site walks. Allowed client better communication in all phases of design
Design consultants compared the proposed renovations to the existing conditions model and reviewed potential clashes.
