3D Laser Scanning for As-Built Surveys 

There are many different applications where 3D laser scanning can be used. At Hive Virtual Plant, we provide our clients with state-of-the-art 3D laser scanning equipment by Leica Geosystems. Beyond solving our clients’ problems, we have one simple objective: to become their most trusted partner. The underpinning of our drive for precision is a determination to be the go-to, ongoing 3D laser scanning and asset management team for everyone who trusts us to take on their challenges. In this article by Hive Virtual Plant, we share some information about how 3D laser scanning can be used for as-built surveys.

Get upfront data quickly 

One of the major advantages of 3D laser scanning services for as-built surveys is it allows all the data you might need to be collected in a single streamlined scanning session, often in only a day or two of scanning work. After that point, they can work with the data from the comfort of their office, without having to return to the site to collect additional data.

Affordable, quick, and easy to use 

Estimates show that 3D laser scanning can capture more accurate data than traditional surveying methods while taking about 50 to 70 percent less time. In addition, the survey data can be captured by an individual working alone, rather than requiring a team of surveyors working together. Since 3D laser scanning requires fewer man-hours to complete versus traditional surveying, it can be significantly less expensive.

Just as good as physically being there 

3D laser scanning provides some of the most accurate surveying data possible, which in turn means that the as-built surveys you create with that data will be accurately dimensioned as well. As-built surveys created from the results of 3D laser scanning are the most accurate representation of a feature that an organization can create. As a result, it represents the next best thing to being there. Project team members can create plans for how to update systems or install new ones while feeling completely confident that their plans are based on accurate dimensions.
