Scanning Technology: Changing the Game

Maggie Kearns

May 5, 2020

The benefits of scanning technology go far beyond just physical spaces. Scanning enables fast, accurate measurement of objects, buildings, and everything in-between. Advanced laser technology enables our experts to provide more accurate site investigation on larger and more complex spaces than ever before.

 

Scanning can benefit a multitude of projects with incredible accuracy, saving our clients time and money.

 

Architecture

  • Facade inspection
  • Scan-to-BIM
  • Built environment
  • Space optimization

 

Construction

  • Structural analysis and maintenance
  • Construction progress monitoring
  • Free-form components inspection
  • Deformations
  • Coordination

 

Civil Engineering/Surveying

  • Scanning of large objects
  • Project supervision
  • Deformation monitoring
  • Large volume calculation
  • Quality control

Building Scanning Success

With cutting edge technology and industry leading experts, we take the data collected from scanning and create three-dimensional (3-D), augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) spaces.

 

Many of our clients have utilized our scanning technology services. From scanning facilities before demolition to projecting remodeling work and new spaces, scanning offers a unique view of projects. Due to the speed and streamlined technology, scanning has proven to be both a time and cost saving effort for clients of all types including:

 

  • Banks
  • Restaurants
  • Retail
  • Grocery
  • Medical testing facilities
  • Municipalities
  • And more

Increase Public Engagement and Educate Stakeholders with Scanning

Not only can scanning offer unique views of the project to clients, but it is also used as an effective tool for public engagement and educating stakeholders.

 

Our process makes it easy to offer engaging and educational experiences for stakeholders and the public. Our experts create augmented reality spaces using a combination of real-world imagery and digital renderings to showcase what your project can look like in the future. The use of augmented reality amplifies public outreach efforts by bringing the project to life.

 

One of the greatest challenges faced by many clients is creating a broader audience to encourage community education and understanding surrounding project solutions. Virtual reality models and animations produce interactive experiences, allowing residents to better understand project solutions early in the design phase.

 

Virtual reality environments created to replicate project sites can be presented to stakeholders at public meetings. They can also exist on the internet, accessible to the audience through their computers and phones, enabling residents to visualize and understand the future project on their own time.

 

From rain gardens to permeable pavers, traffic lights to new road lanes, redesigned interior spaces to completely new buildingsā€¦the possibilities are endless.
