Drone Land Survey

Recieve 3D laser surveys quickly and accurately

By working collaboratively with you and your 3D laser survey brief, we ensure you get the information you want in the right format; whether it is a 3D Revit® model or 2D plans alongside the registered point cloud data file.

Following our visit to site, we quickly share the survey data with you as a point cloud. We deliver it directly to your desktops, so you can immediately start working. Meanwhile, our surveyors create the 3D Revit® model or 2D plans to your specification.

With a commitment to your working timescale, we get the data right the first time and provide efficient delivery. We help you avoid rising costs, reworking your project and delays by keeping to timescales.

Simon Jones, Head of Estates Strategy and Major Capital Developments, North East London NHS Foundation Trust (Goodmayes Hospital)

“We employed CADS Survey team on this complex and sensitive project because of their technical knowledge and professionalism. The project required the integration of laser captured point cloud data and hand measured data to create the 3D model and CADS delivered this within the agreed timescale and budget…CADS took a very consultative approach to the project, fine tuning the specification for the model to ensure we were able to swiftly integrate it into our design process once it was released and we have been delighted with the result.”

CADS point cloud and 3D laser surveys

Trusted on a variety of projects with full support from our surveying experts

Whether your point cloud survey is for a construction projection or property asset record, our skilled surveyors take a highly accurate 3D laser survey of the existing building and site.

Examples of recent projects, in the UK and Europe, include the complex survey of the Art Deco Grade II Daimler HQ in Camden and the multi-site surveys for Santander’s UK-wide refurbishment programme.

With over 35 years of experience in the field, we also have surveyors trained to undertake laser surveys of historic buildings to Historic England’s requirements such as Eling Tide Mill.

Integrate our 3D model seamlessly into your BIM process

Using BIM authoring software such as Revit® we will efficiently register the point cloud data file and then build a BIM-ready 3D model of the facility.

This 3D model is integrated into your BIM process easily, allowing you to work on developing the architectural designs as soon as possible.

The point cloud data files can also be imported into Autodesk Inventor and used in the design of digital prototypes.

Efficently delivering 3D Revit® models & 2D drawings to avoid project delays

The data deliverables from your laser scan survey include both 3D Revit® models and 2D CAD drawings. As with a traditional survey, we create your models and plans to varying levels of detail in line with your budget, timescale and specification. This includes creating CGI architectural visuals if you need them.

To avoid unnecessary work, delays and costs we work with you to ensure these deliverables are defined in the survey brief.

Our survey experts help you make the right decisions for your project

Using the latest technology, our surveyors are proficient in capturing and managing the large amounts of data created by the laser scanner. If needed, our technical experts guide you in the implications and decisions related to the scale of survey, point cloud and model data.

We also provide access to the data via SCENE WebShare while we prepare the final plans and models. This means we can phase delivery of the survey information as the project progresses without the need for costly return visits to site.

Working to industry standards to deliver accurate, cost-effective surveys

Working in accordance with relevant professional and industry standards, together with our own exacting ISO 9001 certified processes, we deliver accurate data that you can depend upon.

We recognise the importance of developing good lines of communication from the very first point of contact. By understanding the full scope of your project we can provide expert technical advice. In doing so, you receive the best service and a practical cost-effective output for the project in the short term and long term.
