Who we work with
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.
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.
