With frequent testing, immediate feedback, daily meetings and ongoing input and consideration of end-user needs.
Statistically speaking, rework on construction projects accounts for 15% of the total cost of construction. 360° & 3D scanning have the potential to catch complications before they happen to reduce this risk.
Due to the accuracy of the as-built drawings, they can expose certain inaccuracies early in the construction process.
The data captured with laser scanning technology not only provides information of the existing conditions, but also can create a record of the lifecycle of buildings. Throughout the construction process, if one so chooses, point clouds can relay how the building is maintained and renovated.
To increase productivity in construction, builders and owners everywhere need to be able to visualize resources, workflows, digital services, environmental impact, and risks and rewards in everything they build and manage. Emerging technologies will be key to that transformation and hold the potential to improve outcomes in the construction industry in many ways, making the industry more efficient and more environmentally sustainable.
The exact product delivered by scan to BIM services varies based on the needs of the client. However, a detailed visualization, some kind of 3D model, is always part of the deal. Scan to BIM services sometimes provide one set of model generated from a scan before the project begins, and sometimes provide multiple models generated throughout the course of the project. As mentioned before, scans can be executed at different levels of detail, and point cloud data can be translated into different BIM software. Some services also provide 3D virtual reality tours of a project space, CAD drawings, drone photography, and other imaging services.
