When precision surveying in high accuracy and high value projects is required, 3D laser scanning is the go to capture method.  

3D laser scanning collects millions of individual point measurements within minutes. The measurements are then plotted within a single XYZ coordinate system to form a 'point cloud' of the object’s external surface. With the addition of GPS data these points can be geo-referenced and transformed into a global reference system.


The benefits of 3D laser scanning are as follows:

  • Laser scanning helps avoid assumptions, generalisations, errors in interpretation and problems by having the original data set to reference.

  • High accuracy and precision reduces the risks associated with project execution.

  • Complete data collection enables further investigations to be carried out later on without costly returns to the site.

  • Reduces the costs and downtime associated with construction rework, site revisits and field changes.

  • Lower cost as-built and topographic survey method compared to alternatives.

  • Remotely capture data from potentially hazardous sites, e.g. motorways or structurally unsafe buildings.

  • Enables 3D Modelling and Building Information Modelling (BIM)

  • High accuracy plans for retro fitting design work, avoiding on-site alterations and clashes.

  • High quality images, animations and visualisations can be created for reports and presentations.
