At GPRS, we often get questions about and requests for 3D laser scanning. Laser scanning produces accurate, detailed scans in a short amount of time with minimal interruption to workflow. Because of its accuracy and efficiency, laser scanning is ideal for engineers, construction managers, and civil planners, as well as those who work in building/historical preservation.
In laser scanning, laser light is used to map physical features of an area through multiple scans and is useful for renovations to existing buildings and new construction projects. Raw data is produced in the form of point clouds. Then, with specialized software, models can be rendered that aid in a number of different industries, such as architecture and historical preservation, hospitals and universities, refineries, municipalities, energy manufacturing plants, and waste water treatment facilities.

Scan Before You Plan
By incorporating 3D laser scanning in the beginning stages of a project, clients are able to realize even greater value and benefits. A scan done in the early stages of a project allows the design process to be accelerated because the scan provides a large amount of important information up front. For example, providing the scan data to subcontractors as part of the RFQ package allows the subcontractors to give a more accurate dollar figure in their proposal back to the client. Accordingly, everyone involved in the project--including the architects, engineers, and contractors--are able to plan better for the project, which can, in turn, reduce potential clashes before the final design and construction begin. Thus, having more precise and definite information at the pre-planning phase allows for better planning throughout the whole project. Additionally, the sooner the information is made available, the more value the client can get from it.
TruePoint caters to a national customer base, and, as a customer, you are always our priority. 3D laser scanning is our sole business, not just a part of it, so we are dedicated to providing you with timely and accurate responses and results.
The data collected from the scans can provide information on support analysis, design, and prefabrication. Laser scanning is also ideal for civil engineers and planners, since the data can be scanned quickly and safely, with little impact on traffic.
