Attic model from laser scan.
With such a versatile tool, laser scanning provides value for many parties involved in property management including architects, engineers, contractors, property owners, real estate brokers, insurance agents and governmental agencies. Using the laser scanner reduces liabilities by safely capturing data in hard-to-access areas. Using traditional survey methods, we gather numerous viewpoints with a scan to not only offer design flexibility but offer documentation of precise conditions. This precision can reduce the need for additional site visits and helps projects move forward smoothly.
Meeting Your Needs
Using software, we can convert data into two-dimensional drawings or accurate three dimensional models. The end result is a 3-D walkthrough model depicting intricate details or a full set of as-built drawings to exact scale. All of this is done in less time and with less cost than traditional methods.
