Commissioning a Point Cloud Survey

Getting accurate 3D building survey data for your project.

Using the latest scanning technology, a laser survey will capture the accurate site information you need for your project, delivered to you as a Point Cloud data file or 3D Revit® model.

 

Benefits of a Point Cloud Survey

Whether you need to locate Mechanical and Electrical services, verify existing drawings with what’s on site or an ‘as-built’ survey before the strip-out works begin, a Point Cloud Survey will give you the reliable information required. Using Faro laser scanners, we can  quickly capture accurate measurements of complex buildings. Once these scans have been registered to create the Point Cloud, the Design Team can access it online.

Gentleman's Walk Laser Point Cloud Survey

Deliverables: Point Cloud, 2D Plans, 3D Revit® Models

Depending on your project requirements we can deliver your base data as a registered point cloud file direct to your desktop so you can start using the data without delay. You will be able to virtually walk around the site and check dimensions. We can also provide 2D CAD plans and BIM-compliant 3D Revit® models, as well as providing a 3D design coordination role if needed.

As with a traditional survey we can deliver your data to varying levels of detail in line with your budget, timescale and specification. Depending on the project and what you are trying to achieve we will seek to help you meet your short-term requirements as well as identifying considerations for longer-term opportunities. With cross industry experience in retail, hospitality, education and industrial sectors we have the expertise you need.

How we work

We take a collaborative approach from the outset to establish a survey specification tailored exactly to your requirements. Using our experience, we will advise you on the best approach to make sure you get the data you require in the most flexible format.

We will look at how we can maximise your budget by ensuring we are capturing the right level of detail for your needs. This can include using colour scans for plant rooms where differentiating between MEP services is essential, but down scaling to black and white where it is not.

By building long-term client relationships, we develop high levels of trust and knowledge enabling us to deliver the best results for you. Smart and innovative data management is embedded in our work processes. We also use the latest technology to improve accuracy and the meet the demands of digital construction. Our consultative approach makes us responsive to your needs. It also helps us deliver your requirements on time and on budget.

Complex 3D BIM Survey for Chelmsford Leisure Centre

Complex 3D BIM Survey for Chelmsford Leisure Centre

Working closely with Pick Everard’s architects and structural engineers, our surveyors established the information requirements for the project, capturing the right scale of data, and constructing the 3D Revit model in a format that could be delivered direct to the architect’s desktop within the agreed budget.

3D Design Coordination for Award Winning Auditorium

3D Design Coordination for Award Winning Auditorium

Our team surveyed the ‘construction shell’ within the Bloomberg HQ auditorium and associated areas to a high degree of engineering accuracy. We constructed an accurately coordinated, federated Revit® model that tested the 70 sub-contractors’ design proposals in an as-built environment.

Extensive Measured Survey of Salisbury Maltings

Extensive Measured Survey of Salisbury Maltings

The client Stride Treglown wanted a full topographic site survey, traditional 2D floor plans and a LOD 2 3D model of the site and all buildings both internally and externally. We were also required to conceptually model and provide detailed 2D elevations of adjacent buildings to capture the context of the location.
