Tags: 3D Laser Scanning Scan to BIM

Scan to BIM is one of the more recent additions to our ever growing range of services. Scan to BIM is a workflow which starts with survey-grade as-built 3D laser scan data (collected using a 3D terrestrial or mobile high definition laser scanner) detailing building structures (internal or external) and infrastructure assets.

From the resultant “point cloud” relevant data can then be derived using CAD drafting and 3D modelling techniques to provide, in most cases, a 3D Building Information Model (BIM).  The information can then be used as a starting point for design teams and asset managers during a design process and beyond.

We were asked to undertake a Scan to BIM survey at St. Cuthbert’s Primary School, so that the information collected could enable the client to generate plans for redesigning the space and layout of the existing building.

The BIM model detailed an array of elements including the primary architecture of the building and structural openings such as doors and windows.
