High Definition Surveying

High quality 3D laser scanning for architectural, mechanical,
structural, industrial, construction and roadway projects.

Benefits of Laser Scanning

Millions of real-world data points

Rapid data capture means a single laser scan captures millions of points per second. In contrast to hand measurements, where only one measurement can be taken at a time, a single scan provides an incredible level of detail over every exposed inch of walls, floors, ceilings, mechanical systems, structural components, architectural components, etc.

 

Answer unanticipated questions

The point cloud produced by laser scanning is complete documentation of the as-built environment, eliminating the need to return to the project to answer unanticipated questions. The data can also be shared with team members and sub-consultants that may otherwise conduct their own survey of the site.

Optimize schedule and minimize shut-down times

Scanning is non-intrusive and doesn’t require industrial facilities to shut down in order to be performed. At hospitals, sports venues and entertainment centers, scanning can be performed during off hours. Understanding real-world conditions can help project managers make informed decisions about the construction schedule.

Eliminate Error

Hand measurements acquired from cloth or steel tape measures that have sag and linear distortion and are subject to human error. Laser scanning is the most accurate form of measurement available; millions of points to within 1-2 mm accuracy per measurement.

 

Reduce change orders and waste

The cost of a scan pales in comparison to the average cost of change orders. Scanning can help facility managers recognize discrepancies in data by providing accurate measurements before a problem arises and ensure the accuracy of prefabricated materials being manufactured offsite.

Increase safety

Acquiring hand measurements can be dangerous. Using a 3D scanner improves safety by keeping workers out of harm’s way while saving time, costs, and increasing accuracy.

What Our Clients Are Saying:

"Having a model helped me to visualize a simple revision to the design that ended up saving a full 10 months out of the construction schedule. I am positive that I simply would have not noticed this potential if it weren’t for having the accurate scanned information at my disposal. It has been a very positive experience for me and has proven its value several times. The contractors see the value through our day to day planning with the model, and visualizing the work before it happens. The owner is recognizing the cost savings of shaving 10 months off of the project schedule and has also become an advocate of 3D scanning."

"Truescan3D makes it easier for us to be successful with our clients and provide deliverables that others cannot. We have the confidence and trust to send them to our clients facilities all over the region and they represent L&F like one of our own. We can’t think of a better partner than Truescan3D to expand our service offerings."

− Gregory Buccola, LEED AP BD+C, Director of Structural Marketing, Luckett & Farley

"With your industry leading technology and experience, I received my model under budget and quicker than than going to the site for takeoffs and creating the Revit model in-house. We saved two full-time modelers a minimum of 4 to 5 weeks creating the existing building structure and MEP systems. With your team’s professionalism at the job site, the owner was pleased to see the non-interruption to the facility’s day to day operations."
