Revit® building models

Providing reliable technical expertise to create highly accurate Revit building models from scan data

Revit building models

Technical 3D modelling services to satisfy your project requirements

If you are commissioning a laser survey or have scan data that needs processing, our technical 3D modelling services will deliver highly accurate Revit® building models to your project specification.

Your BIM-ready project deliverables will be supplied directly to your desktops, so you can and your project team can start working immediately, wherever you are based.

These digital 3D models, reduce risk, by enabling your design team to collaborate and optimise the design solution while also meeting your construction project deadlines.

Experienced surveyors and Revit modellers

Our professional team of surveyors are experienced in processing scan data to create highly complex Revit building models as well as plans, sections and elevations. Recent examples of such projects include the Art Deco Grade II Listed Daimler HQ in Camden, the Chelmsford Leisure Centre for Pick Everard and Goodmayes Hospital.

Creating a BIM-ready Revit® building model

Using BIM authoring software such as Revit® we will quickly turn the point cloud data file into a BIM-ready 3D model of the facility. You can then practically interrogate the model and start working on developing the architectural designs.

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

contact CADS

We appointed CADS as our survey experts on the Chelmsford Leisure Centre project as we knew the team had the expertise we required in laser scanning and modelling a project of this size. We chose to involve them in the design strategy as we knew they would add valuable and professional insight.

Comprehensive 3D modelling service delivery

3D model service delivery

Our surveyors, using the latest technology, are proficient in capturing and managing the large amounts of data created by the laser scanner. We will provide access to the data via SCENE WebShare while we are preparing the final plans and models. This also means we can phase delivery of the survey information as the project progresses without the need for costly return visits to site.

Architectural plans, sections and elevations

Alongside the Revit building model, the deliverables from survey scan data includes 2D CAD plans, sections and elevations.

We can create these CAD drawings 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 will work with you to ensure these deliverables are defined in the specification brief.
