3D Laser Scanning & High-Definition Surveying

3D Laser Scanning is a high-definition surveying technique that replaces traditional methods of field measurement. This technology enables the rapid collection of precise measurements in a fraction of the time.

3D Laser Scanning for architectural projects

Most existing buildings have rudimentary documentation, such as 2D paper blueprints or unverified record drawings. These documents tend to lack accurate or up-to-date information suitable for starting a major renovation project. Often, existing buildings must be measured and redrawn in a digital format such as CAD or Autodesk Revit (3D BIM), so that teams of design professionals can base the renovation design on a reliable set of known conditions.

Complex renovations should start with accurate
High-Definition Surveys

We perform our 3D laser scans according to surveying standards. This approach emphasizes measurement redundancy, repeatability, and verifiable accuracy. Our high-quality 3D laser scanning equipment is capable of collecting measurements over distances ranging from less than three feet to several hundred feet with +/- 1mm precision. Various techniques are used in the field to ensure the resulting measurements can be verified and that the survey is reliable within a stated tolerance.

Advantages of 3D Laser Scanning

  • Accuracy: Map or survey grade accuracy across an entire building
  • Validity: Information collected is verifiable via quantitative analysis
  • Speed: Less time spent on site
  • Comprehensive: Amount of information collected surpasses all other methods
  • Safety: Measurements can be taken without ladders or lifts
  • Cost Effectiveness: Return visits to the site and unforeseen conditions significantly reduced
  • Stakeholder Communication: Clarity of data supports project team
  • Low Impact on Operations: Non-invasive services performed on your schedule
  • Data Accessibility: IVION Cloud access makes previously proprietary data accessible via a web-based server.
  • Sustainability: Facilitates sustainability initiatives by reducing waste, rework, and unnecessary visits to the job site.
