There’s a new trend in construction and design: 3D visualization. Three-dimensional data is taking over the industry, and it’s thanks to exciting new technology.
A little while ago, 2D design and visualization was all that our hardware could handle. But current computer technology allows for massive data sets to be easily captured and stored. It’s now not uncommon for a single project to be measured in terabytes; leaving a lot of potential for new data gathering tools.
That’s why we’re so excited about laser scanning. With brand new laser technology, we can now produce accurate 3D data sets called point clouds. This data type is radically changing construction and design.
Building Information Modeling
Laser scanning impacts Building Information Modeling (BIM) in a big way too. Currently, creating an accurate visual model requires a mix up of aerial photos, survey data, and manual modeling. With our new technology, you can skip all that and import data directly from the scan.
You can use our provided data in your proposals for new jobs. Visualizations are quickly becoming a staple of winning bids and explaining projects to stakeholders. More and more clients are realizing the benefits of pairing rich visuals with their presentations. As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
Your presentations will be more than pretty pictures, however. A 3D model is made from HD photography and laser scanning combined.
The data rich models that we provide can be used at all stages of building and design. Laser scanned spatial data is accurate to the millimeter.
No other surveying company in Windsor-Essex is currently providing laser scanning services. We’d like to invite you to consider laser scanning, and see what it can do for your next project. Three-dimensional is the future of design, so don’t wait too long to bring this technology into your workflow.
Laser Scanning Is The Next Step
Of course, 3D laser scanning impacts certain types of surveying more than others. Topography and as-builts really benefit from the technology, for example. Some jobs are still better done in the traditional way. Give us a call today, and we can talk about serving your particular need.
If you are interested in being at the forefront of construction technology in Windsor-Essex, then laser scanning is the next step. You’ll be left wondering how you’d ever lived without it!
