Construction applications with 3D laser scanning

Are you operating a construction job and you are looking for a way to speed up the pre-planning process with efficient data? With 3D laser scanning technology, you can get the highest quality data in real-time that can be used to plan out your job, see areas that are tough to navigate, keep your build team safe, lower job costs, and much more. There are plenty of construction applications with 3D laser scanning and if you are wanting to learn more about some of them, then we encourage you to continue reading this article by Hive Virtual Plant.

Improve your accuracy

With a simple non-harmful laser scan, general contractors and project managers achieve exact site conditions that their trade teams can then rely on to make coordinated and accurate construction project plans. 3D laser scanning technology allows you to obtain high-quality data that can be stored and viewed at a later time at a totally different location. 

Mitigate risk 

3D laser scanning technology also allows you to decrease the risks that are present on the jobsite. Using outdated measurement tools like a tape measure can sometimes require teams of multiple field workers to be placed in precarious environments and increase time-on-site, leading to higher injury risk. With 3D scanning, there is no need for scaffolding or ladders. One laser scanner can capture the precise measurements of high ceilings and ductwork far above human reach.

Reduce the cost 

3D laser scanning technology allows you to keep the costs of your job down overall. Inaccurate site measurements can cause additional expenses in equipment rentals, man-hours, additional trade materials, and project delays, adding up quickly. With the exact site conditions provided by the laser scanner, teams can plan effectively and prevent these costly disruptions.
