reality capture – the impossible made possible…

Reality Capture…

3d scanning with photography as an inherent part of our BIM (building information modelling process)

To give you specific examples…

Example : Siteworks…

What if you run the laser scanner over the re-bar and formwork – BEFORE you pour the concrete.

You would have an exact record of where all the openings and reinforcement existed to 6mm accuracy.

More importantly you could check your openings were in the right place BEFORE you pour the concrete and therefore you could take remedial action which could cost very little in time and cost compared to the error and impact AFTER you commit.

Example : Design and implementation…

What if you could not access the site in advance of the project design phase… what if access – when granted – was dangerous and limited… how do you model, check and collaborate within your team while allowing access to the wider team and stakeholders to the progress of the design phase…

Reality Capture techniques using laser scanning and photography combined with a user interface which enables interrogation and overmarks would allow BIM to commence without access to the site.
