3D scanning is a valuable tool in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries, helping document new buildings and remodeling projects. Capturing accurate images and precise data from day one helps eliminate mistakes and delays. It also benefits the industry by being safe, and will give you a productivity boost as well.
Our clients are leveraging Better Building Data scanning teams to improve safety on site by reducing the need to use ladders and lifts to measure existing structures before renovation starts. OSHA’s Fatal Four highlights the need to always look for ways to keep your employees safe. The number one cause of construction injury and death is from falls. Reducing the use of ladders and lifts is a great example of leveraging ground based laser scanning for your data collection, not to mention eliminating the time to go up and down ladders all day long.
Laser scanners are able to gather up to two million data points per second, leaving in the dust the teams who are still hand measuring and hand sketching project details. Productivity increases of over 90% are achievable by leveraging Better Building Data scanning teams over manual collection and hand sketching methods. No more trade offs of accuracy verses time measuring. We all know that more measurement data is better then less data, but who today can afford the time to hand measure a whole floor of a office building, a central heating plant or even a retail space at the mall. If you are taking more than two hours to measure and hand sketch a space, give us a call, we can help.
