Water Treatment Plant Expansion Utilizes 3D Laser Scanning Point Cloud Data

Raw point cloud data provided an engineering firm in California the accurate measurements they needed to design and plan the expansion of a water treatment facility in Texas thanks to 3D laser scanning
Capture accurate existing conditions and provide raw as-built, point cloud data for the expansion of a water treatment plant
An engineering firm was generating construction drawings to expand an existing water treatment plant. The firm required accurate field conditions in raw point cloud data (.rcp files and related supporting files) to create new layouts for construction.
No as-built drawings existed for the water treatment plant. Accurate existing conditions were needed to plan for the facility expansion • Exact dimensions were required to plan modifications and fabricate pipe • The project's engineering firm was located in California; the water treatment plant was located in Texas. They needed accurate information available in a digital platform to begin design planning Solution • Using a Leica Scan Station, a GPRS Project Manager completed 40 laser scans of the building to capture architectural, structural, and MEP features • The client received a colorized point cloud in ReCap (.rcp files and related supporting files) and TruView files that allowed the engineering firm and the plant to coordinate off-site planning and prefabrication for the expansion Benefits Laser scanning is an extremely efficient and accurate way to gather data necessary to create construction drawings of a building or space. • 3D laser scanning eliminated the firm's travel to the Water Treatment Plant. In one day on site, enough scans were taken to create a complete colorized point cloud of the space. • 3D laser scan data provided the Engineering Firm critical tie points on tanks and lines, information that was crucial to the expansion.

Power Plant Renovations Require 3D Laser Scanning

In just one day on site, GPRS was able to capture the entire existing condition of the facility, even in dense pipe runs and hard-to-reach spaces, with 2-4mm accuracy to provide the client with an accurate 3D BIM model for planning, fabrication, and clash detection
An engineering firm needed to have existing conditions of a power plant documented and modeled to plan for renovations.
An engineering firm needed to have existing conditions of a power plant documented and modeled to plan for renovations.
Problem • The client needed to accurately document the existing conditions of the plant without interruptions to the power supply • Many of the pipe runs were dense and impossible to accurately measure by hand • The client required 2-4 mm accuracy of dense piping and pipe runs throughout the facility • The client needed to guarantee that installations complied with safety regulations Solution • In one day on site, GPRS' Project Manager used the Leica RTC360 laser scanner to capture 150 laser scans, documenting existing conditions of the facility • Many of the pipe runs were dense and impossible to accurately measure by hand • GPRS generated a 3D BIM model for use in CAD software, including all civil, structural, electrical, and mechanical features, piping, and conduit 1" and larger Benefits • Due to the vast space and density of the piping, it would have been much more difficult and time consuming to accurately depict the location of pipe runs, structural features, and other details in the plant manually • The point cloud data from laser scanning was used by CAD technicians to create an intelligent 3D BIM model for planning, fabrication and clash detection • Verified measurements and virtual planning guarantee installations will comply with safety regulations • Using virtual 3D models, the firm can plan and model future developments to manage the facility without having to re-enter the site

Accurate PT Cable Layout Critical to Construction

GPRS’ detailed 2D CAD drawings and 3D BIM model allow for safe cutting, coring & drilling for building-wide MEP and HVAC installations.
GPRS located and marked the full post-tension cable system layout for 12 floors of a 49-floor building, with approximately 12,500 sq. ft. of concrete on each floor. After concrete scanning was completed with ground penetrating radar technology, GPRS 3D laser scanned each floor to produce 2D CAD drawings and a 3D BIM model for virtual design and construction. The architect received a permanent record of the post-tension cable layout to complete fit and finish design plans for the building.
Mapping the PT cable layout in concrete slabs facilitates design and minimizes the risk of injuries and delays.
GPRS’ detailed 2D CAD drawings and 3D BIM model allow for safe cutting, coring & drilling for building-wide MEP and HVAC installations. Construction Concrete Scanning, 3D Laser Scanning & 3D BIM Modeling Concrete scanning services will locate critical targets like post tension cables, rebar, conduits, voids, and more to help keep your project on time, on budget, and safe. 3D laser scanning captures concrete markings with 2-4mm accuracy for GPRS to transform into custom 2D CAD drawings and 3D BIM models. GPRS located and marked the full post-tension cable system layout for 12 floors of a 49-floor building, with approximately 12,500 sq. ft. of concrete on each floor. After concrete scanning was completed with ground penetrating radar technology, GPRS 3D laser scanned each floor to produce 2D CAD drawings and a 3D BIM model for virtual design and construction. The architect received a permanent record of the post-tension cable layout to complete fit and finish design plans for the building. Post-tension cable location, spacing, and depth are determined by an engineer, are specific to each project, and must be traced in short distances to reveal the slope. Each tendon pulls 24,000 to 33,000 lbs. of pressure. Damaging a cable when cutting, coring, or drilling into a slab can cause a tendon to burst with enough force to cause severe injury or death, and impact the structural integrity of the slab. Replacing a single post-tension cable costs $10,000 - $20,000. Experienced Project Managers used ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology to locate and mark the precise details of each concrete reinforcement, documenting the location, number of cables, and depth directly on the slab and ceiling. After the post-tension layout was complete, each floor was 3D laser scanned to capture the field markings. That data was used to create a virtual tour, 2D CAD drawings (PT site layout and floor contours,) and a complete 3D BIM model of the site. The captured point cloud data was aligned to survey control, then to the client’s design model, further ensuring the accuracy of the data. GPRS has a verified 99.8% accuracy rate for concrete scanning, backed by our Green Box Guarantee. Laser scanning is accurate within 2-4mm. An accurate layout of post-tension cables protects tendons from damage, prevents injury and mistakes, and protects the integrity of the building. 2D plan sheets and a 2D floor contour map documenting the actual floor elevation added even more accuracy to the depth of cover that is field marked. The 3D BIM model provided the architect data to plan fit and finish designs and coordinate with contractors and MEP trades before build-out.
