A PointSCAN 3D BIM survey acquires data to compile an accurate digital blueprint of a buildings structure along with mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services.  Allowing all parties, easy access to accurately identify specific items within the make-up of a building that are required from the initial design, construction through to occupation and management.

PointSCAN work with Architects, designers, contractors and suppliers for building management, maintenance and refurbishment projects across the country.  All of whom benefit from accurate SMART BIM information increasing design efficiencies and avoid costly design changes during any such delivery phase.

Once verified data acquired from a 3D Laser Scanning survey can be owned by the building custodian. Information that accurately captures a buildings environment, the BIM data acts as a controlled reference for any future works. A single BIM plan can now be distributed with suppliers and contractors to reduce the number of surveys required. Therefore minimising any errors and misinterpretation of specifications and ultimately reducing timescales and costs. 

Clash Detection

The need for early identification of potential clashes between structures and services alike not only improves confidence in a design but can save considerable financial cost and delay a project while changes are implimented.  

Engineering detail captured by PointSCAN BIM 3D laser survey

3D laser surveys accurately capture all aspects of a buildings structure and services and present them in a way that can be viewed and interrogated.  

Simplifying the process for designers to create new service layouts by incorporating their design within the 3D point cloud to prevent clashes without any additional modelling.
