Creating effective plans for a renovation or addition relies on accurate data of existing
conditions. For years, many architects relied on manually collected field data—a
long, labor intensive process. With Rochester and Associates’ 3D high definition
scanning technology, attaining a building’s geometry in its current form is now
easier and more accurate than ever.
A vital component of building information modeling (BIM), 3D scanning creates a comprehensive
view of every aspect of a building while providing the added benefits of:
Speed and accuracy. Data can be gathered ten times faster than
conventional survey data collection methods and is millimeter-level accurate.
Saving time. The complete coverage area of the Point Cloud eliminates
the need for return trips during that project and for future needs as well.
Enhanced safety. A scan measures parts of a building a person
can’t safely reach.
Flexible format options. Data from a 3D scan can be exported for
use in a variety of formats, including Revit (for use in a BIM) or can be viewed
with free software.
Database Integration – Point Cloud information can be referenced
to existing project control or geo referenced to integrate into an existing GIS database.
Risk mitigation. Real-time conflict detection alerts you to issues
before they can disrupt the project.
In addition to architectural plans, 3D scanning can also provide a cost effective solution
for professionals tasked with analyzing landfill or quarry capacity, measuring stock
pile quantities, creating an accurate needs list for construction materials, and more.
