Scan to BIM
When there’s a need for a highly accurate as-built BIM model for further retrofit, refurbishment or renovation, Scan to BIM services are the ones to delve into. Leveraging laser scanning technology you gather highly precise imagery which is then transformed into a holistic 3D BIM model with all the added value the BIM technology brings.
What Are The Benefits of Scan to BIM?
We offer a range of solution to maximise the value of your project and deliver it with high savings to the overall cost. Point clouds obtained in the process of laser scanning provide sharp geometry that is then complemented with other data of value represented in a BIM model bringing a number of benefits, such as:
1. Design Reliability
Shop drawings obtained from a BIM Model are highly accurate and depict all systems in the way they are built. All the alteration to the design are properly recorded and safely stored in the cloud, which allows as-needed access and eliminates the possibility of errors at the design stage.
2. Improved Coordination
Scan to BIM improves coordination between the systems making all the processes transparent and enabling teams to reach consensus faster. Clashes are resolved in the digital representation of the asset, which saves time and money to the facility owner and contractors.
3. Cost Savings
The money invested in deploying laser scanning and BIM model creation results in significant savings as compared to traditional surveying and 2D drawings. 3D scans converted into 3D BIM models carry geometric and non-geometric attributes that correspond to the level of detail required.
4. Better Sustainability
Scan to BIM opens up opportunities for improving the sustainability of the project. It also allows for energy consumption calculations and minimizing the negative footprint of construction, renovation and rehabilitation projects.
5. Enhanced Facility Management
Building performance monitoring and recording enhance facility management and help to deploy operational scenarios that reduce cost and favour better risk management and security measures to be adopted.
