BIM 3D SCANNING SERVICES

Quality Solutions has been recognized as an industry leader in 3D modeling, BIM and performing coordination and conflict resolution duties on difficult projects. To further our leadership position in the industry we have purchased a  3D scanning system. We will use this capability to assist in shop drawing preparation, as-built documentation and scanning services for owners, architects, engineers and contractors.

Effective planning is critically important to architects, engineers and contractors in any type of construction project. 3D documentation at every stage, from initial design to final inspection, can help avoid costly design changes and construction conflicts. The capability of this scanning system includes a range from and individual room, simple building construction, to complex industrial renovations and documenting historical structures or other existing conditions.

We believe this forward looking approach will keep Quality Solutions at the front of the pack.

BIM Modeling Using 3D Laser Scanning Services

Laser scanning is an ideal technology for Building Information Modeling (BIM) due to its efficiency, accuracy, and level of detail. Laser scanning accurately documents as-built conditions and proves to be invaluable in facility asset management and modifications. Laser scanning can also be used for reality capture and augmented reality in many aspects of architecture, construction and engineering.

TruePoint has earned a national reputation for delivering excellent service in the BIM 3d scanning industry. More than 800 projects are completed every year on time and on budget. Experienced scan technicians collect millions of precise data points for a building or site with industry-leading survey-grade Leica equipment. TruePoint engineers, architects and CAD Designers/Technicians have mastered the technology for converting 3D laser scanner point clouds into Building Information Modeling (BIM) —ready 3D models to support the planning and design needs of any project. Having precise data helps plan for projects without the expense and worry of unknown interference and conflicts.

Some Benefits of Using BIM Include

  • Being able to more accurately determine job costing, scheduling and building efficiencies
  • Design and pre-construction modeling for visualization purposes, as well as determining potential problems before costly design or construction has taken place (i.e. clash detection)
  • Interoperability amongst all disciplines involved in the building and management of a facility can be updated in real-time
  • Ability to have highly accurate “as-builts” for facility management, future modifications and troubleshooting
  • Facility management to operate and maintain a facility efficiently and cost-effectively

BIM enables architects and engineers alike to work on a single project from anywhere in the world. It condenses a plethora of information about every detail into a workable format. It makes for easier design, simpler coordination between team members and easier structure maintenance across the entire built environment—and this is just the beginning.
