Scan to BIM Services in UK

Conserve offers Scan to BIM services in UK, 3D laser scanning that can transform the planning, engineering and construction of large-scale projects through data, visualization and business intelligent.

What is Scan to BIM ?

Scan to BIM is a transformative process that bridges the physical world with digital representations. It involves capturing accurate 3D data of existing structures or sites using advanced scanning technologies like LiDAR or photogrammetry, and then converting this data into intelligent BIM models. These models serve as comprehensive digital twins, facilitating efficient design, construction, and management of infrastructure projects.

How Conserve can help in the Scan to BIM

Scan to BIM: Conserve Solutions, specializes in serving our clients with the latest 3D laser scanning technology with high accurate proximity data where field measurements or as-built will be a necessity.3D laser scanning of large, complex as-built structures helps AEC professionals accelerate the documentation process of existing conditions while improving accuracy and cutting costs. It helps to capture complete as-built field construction data without causing disruption.

Conserve offer 3D Laser scan onsite through which high definition scans can be delivered for immediate Engineering analysis. The 3D scans deliver high definition 360-degree by 320-degree photo-realistic panoramic scans to a 3D CAD surface model. The 3D digital capture gathers large amount of field information in short period. The data from point cloud/3D scan can  be used to produce engineering documents without clashes and interferences.

3D Scanning services start by bringing our qualified technicians out to your site for digital survey, scanning and data collection.

Data Collection

First, we set up our digital survey total stations to validate scanner positions for each area that needs to be captured. These surveys dimensional control methodologies offer a higher standard of precision, ensuring that the resulting point cloud modelling is accurate within 2mm to 5mm.

Secondly, laser-scanning devices take 360-degree laser measures of reflected surface points that are collected / measures millions of points per second. Once all the scans are collected, the data is taken in-house.

Data Analysis

Thirdly by using the state-of-the-art processing software where all the individual scans are registered and connected together to form your unique point cloud model which suits as an input into BIM applications

Data Processing

Scan to BIM: 3D scanned data can be integrated with other information in CAD, GIS & Web platforms where engineers to make informed real time decisions can use it. When integrated with BIM, the point cloud model allows you to quickly and accurately analyse and access as-is project conditions prior to commencing the design process. The 3D point clouds will be converted into a comprehensive Building Information Model in native formats

Advantages of 3D Laser Scanning Over Conventional Method

  • Proven lower cost as-built and topographic surveys, due to faster data collection & shorter project life cycle times.
  • More accurate, complete as-built for retrofits and design, enabling offshore fabrication & less construction rework caused by Interferences and fit-up problems
  • Reduced facility downtime, because of the unobstructed scanning procedure.
  • Scan data can be delivered via a complimentary viewer, as 2D or 3D CAD or in a variety of laser scan formats that can be manipulated by the client.
  • Time spent for data capture is up to 10 times faster, and then construction / installation stop of shorter duration.
  • We can be sure that all the necessary information have been collected, allowing us to avoid the risk of having to return to the site to integrate with new measures.
