Power of Survey Data for Complex Projects

Data is POWER

In the fast-developing world of digital construction, data is power. It is the oracle from which all subsequent design, construction and management activities derive their knowledge. When building data is incorrect or missing it can create a damaging legacy for a construction or refurbishment project, resulting in rework, rising costs, increased commercial risk and project delays.

Which is why a laser survey should be treated as an investment, not just a commodity.

We put the POWER of DATA in your hands

Collaborate effectively with a Point Cloud Survey

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

Our 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.
