Scan to BIM is the current work flow in the diverse field of multiple building industries. With LiDAR technology ControlPoint Surveying, Inc. is able to collect scan data and transform it into a 2D topographic map / As-built plans / 3D intelligent model. Depending on our client’s needs, we are able to accommodate the specific needs of the project, whether it is to provide a survey grade accurate topographic map, point cloud data or a 3D model for engineers to design within. The ability to obtain laser scanned data has changed the way engineers visually assess a building site. Without even having to step on site, they are able to extract an abundant amount of information at the comfort of their computer station. With the ability to clash detect conflicts in the pre-design stage, project change orders are minimized and costs improved. Each member of the design teams is usually able to save a significant amount of time and shorten labor costs.
