WHAT IS 3D LASER SCANNING?

Laser Scanning is a process that uses lasers to capture millions of detailed points of a building, structure, or site. These lasers, which pulse hundreds of thousands of times per second, give incredibly accurate measurements between points. 

Creating a 3D collection of XYZ coordinates known as a ‘point cloud’. Specialist software then converts this data into comprehensive 3D models.

HOW DOES IT WORK IN PRACTICE?

One of our highly skilled surveyors will come to your site with the laser scanner, setup the equipment at pre-determined locations, aim, click, and we are done. We will then leave your site and begin the registration process of all of the scans back at our office. 

Once the scans have been registered, we can create a site point cloud and produce 2D general arrangements, maps and plans, elevations, construction drawings. We can then produce M&E Drawings such as 3D intelligent models, panoramic virtual tours, and lifelike 3D animations

Carrying out surveys is safe, fast, accurate and offers huge project cost savings. We can obtain more information through 3D laser scanning than any manual survey could ever compare. This makes 3D laser scanning the preferred option when surveying assets on site. 

Deans Design Services use the latest Faro laser scanning technology and digital methods to undertake a survey, this ensures accurate records are generated.

Many of our clients often face the problem of lost or missing ‘as-built’ drawings. That is when the point cloud scans offer clients millimetre perfect layouts in a digital format.

Our offices are located on the outskirts of Chester a prime location within the North West of England, but carry out laser surveys all over the United Kingdom.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER SCANNING?

    • Generation of 3D models from point cloud data
    • Accurate as-built information
    • Safer surveying practices in hazardous environments, e.g. Rail infrastructure & Motorways
    • Reduces surveying field time and surveying costs in comparison to traditional methods
    • Improves surveying processes and work flows
    • Provides high resolution images and data
