3D Laser Scanning

A more efficient method of capturing existing structures in full 3D.

Accurate plans and building information modelling are an essential part of any new build or refurbishment project, but there are times when limited information is available on the existing building or site.

3D Laser scanning creates an incredibly accurate computer model of your site by taking millions of points of data.  By linking these measurements together, this ‘point cloud’ can then be used to recreate the physical environment in 3D space, as an Autodesk Revit model.  This is perfect for Geospatial Engineering.


  • Capture building information in hours, not days
  • Save time and money
  • Work with highly accurate 3D data


Laser Scanning is ideally suited to new build or refit projects:

Project Tendering / BIM Delivery

Demonstrate a greater knowledge of the project and improve your presentation with accurate 3D visuals and animations.

Refurbishment/Renovation Project

Laser scanning existing buildings and infrastructure allows accurate planning of work around existing structures.

Use the captured data to accurately design the changes needed with confidence.

Building Extensions

Design accurately to existing structures.

Verify existing ‘as built’ plans.

Pre-Construction Site Survey


Make use of real site-based information prior to the site set out and build sequence.  Confirm distances, clearance to obstacles, road access, etc, without site re-visits.

Post-Construction Model Verification

Prove the constructed building matches the 3D computer model. Scan and compare it to the computer designed 3D model.
