As-Built Construction
As-builts provide an accurate record of a building or site’s existing conditions, including architectural, structural, utility, and MEP system dimensions, locations, and material specifications for reliable project planning.
Point Cloud of a Factory
Point Clouds
By representing spatial data as a collection of x, y, and z coordinates, point clouds deliver 2–4-millimeter accurate datasets of buildings, facilities, and sites that can be mined for information. This 3D dataset of existing site conditions can be processed into 3D BIM models, 3D meshes, and 2D CAD drawings.
BIM Modeling of a Infrastructure
BIM Modeling
3D BIM models deliver a geometrically accurate digital representation of a building or site, capturing infrastructure, spatial relationships, maintenance information, product models, as well as additional property and layer information. GPRS transforms point clouds into custom 3D BIM models and 3D mesh models at any level of detail, supplying a powerful tool to collaborate on a building’s design, construction, and operation.
3D Photogrammetry in a Warehouse
3D Photogrammetry
The 4K HDR photographs and LiDAR point clouds captured with Matterport photogrammetry can be used to create digital twins, virtual tours, floor plans, 2D CAD plan views, 3D models, and more to communicate design and renovation plans, coordinate construction activities, develop emergency plans & safety procedures.
2D CAD Drawings | GPRS
2D CAD Drawings
Site plans, floor plans, elevations, sections, details, isometric drawings, reflected ceiling plans, and more can be created and used for record-keeping, construction & renovation planning, building modifications, trade coordination, and maintenance.
Mapping & Modeling
Discover all types of scan-to-BIM deliverables and determine which ones best suit your needs. Accurate data allows clients to expedite design planning & engineering, extract 3D coordinates and measure distances, along with the ability to tour, mark-up, and share with the project team.

Using 3D Laser Scanning For Facility Design Modification

When plant engineers at a pet food packaging facility needed to make modifications, they asked GPRS 3D Laser Scanning to provide as built documentation and a 3D model to plan retrofits to the existing structure. The project site consisted of 140,000 sq. ft. of interior space. Approximately 100,000 sq. ft. of this was single-story warehouse space, consisting of a central palletizer, semi- truck loading bays and temporary material storage. The remaining 40,000 sq. ft. contained 7 levels of elevated platforms containing product packaging equipment. TruePoint captured all architectural and structural features, equipment, conduit and piping.
Transforming a pet food facility with GPRS 3D Laser Scanning. Detailed documentation & 3D models streamline retrofit planning. Covering 140k sq.ft., including warehouses & elevated platforms.
CASE STUDY LOCATION Bowling Green, Kentucky TASK: When plant engineers at a pet food packaging facility needed to make modifications, they asked TruePoint Laser Scanning to provide as built documentation and a 3D model to plan retrofits to the existing structure. The project site consisted of 140,000 sq. ft. of interior space. Approximately 100,000 sq. ft. of this was single-story warehouse space, consisting of a central palletizer, semi- truck loading bays and temporary material storage. The remaining 40,000 sq. ft. contained 7 levels of elevated platforms containing product packaging equipment. TruePoint captured all architectural and structural features, equipment, conduit and piping. PROBLEM SOLUTION BENEFITS n By using laser scanning instead of traditional survey methods, TruePoint saved this client thousands of dollars in field survey work and drafting time, and provided greater detail than what would have otherwise been possible. With an accurate, comprehensive data set, plant engineers were able to complete virtual interference checks, avoiding design rework costs. n In two days on site, TruePoint’s experienced project managers 3D scanned the 140,000 sq. ft. area with millimeter accuracy. 523 scans were taken with the Leica P50 and RTC 360 laser scanners. This project was scanned on the weekend to avoid disruption to production. n After proper data registration, TruePoint’s in-house modeling team built an information-rich 3D BIM model for the client. TruePoint’s experienced team has optimized workflows for importing data, registration, creating deliverables, quality checks and transferring data to clients. n No as built plans existed for the facility. The plant was complex, capturing the existing spatial data of the conduit and piping in a high level of detail was important to the plant engineers. n There were silos and other pieces of large equipment that would be difficult to measure precisely using traditional or manual measuring techniques. /// GPRS LASER SCANNING SERVICES ///// 3D LASER SCANNING CASE STUDY: USING 3D LASER SCANNING FOR FACILITY DESIGN MODIFICATIONS “IT’S HARD FOR ME TO IMAGINE HOW THIS PET FOOD PACKAGING FACILITY COULD HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED WITHOUT 3D LASER SCANNING.” TRUEPOINT PROJECT MANAGER

GPRS 3D Laser Scans A Massachusetts Library Prior to Renovation

292 individual interior and exterior LiDAR scans were completed in a single day, capturing existing conditions including all historical features, all without disrupting the historic site's operations or impacting its valuable contents so that a renovation could be designed and planned without requiring time consuming hand-measurements.
3D laser scanning a historic Massachusetts library to create a 3D BIM model.
GPRS 3D laser scanned a historic library in Amherst, Massachusetts and created an LOD 300 Revit model for the architect. The interior and exterior of the library was 3D scanned, this was an estimated 47,000 sq. ft. of space with 4 levels.
Built in 1919: there were no existing as-built details availableIt was likely that the existing condition of the building included unsquared architectural features The library’s historic features had to be preserved and intact during and post-renovation The library needed to remain open to patrons and conduct regular operations while visualization was completedPaintings of Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost, plus local historical exhibits, were contained in a gallery on site that needed to remain untouched Laser scanning was executed on Patriot’s Day, a Massachusetts state holiday. The library was closed so all scans could be completed without disrupting operations292 laser scans were completed of the interior and exterior of the library; approximately 47,000 sq. ft. of space spanning four levels An intensity map point cloud and 3D BIM model were delivered to the client, giving them accurate data of the current as-built conditions 3D scanning provided updated floor plans and captured existing conditions via a 3D BIM model to speed redesign and planningArchitects, designers, and contractors could access and utilize the BIM model and 3D laser scanning data at any stage of the restoration process for reference3D laser scanning is non-contact; scanning from a distance minimized the risk of damaging historical art work and exhibits and was completed in a single day on site

Location: Houston, Texas Task: GPRS provided laser scanning services for the Arena Theatre in Houston, Texas. The client desired to replace the current seating and did not have accurate drawings. The primary objective was to capture the existing dimensions of the seating, ramps, stairs, floor and stage area. The client requested the raw scan data to design the new layout of the seats. Challenge: The client has a remote laser scanner; however, due to inclement weather, could not make the flight to Houston. With a full concert schedule and a limited window of opportunity to laser scan, the client contacted GPRS to handle this project for them. Solutions: Since GPRS offers nationwide service, a Project Manager (PM) quickly mobilized to the site to perform laser scanning. Using the Leica HDS7000 Ultra-High-Speed Laser Scanner with Extended Range, the PM captured the existing conditions and delivered point cloud data to the client the next day. Deliverables: GPRS delivered raw scan data (.zfs files) to the client. No registration was required for this project. Added Value: GPRS worked quickly to provide laser scan data to the client, allowing them to begin designing the new seating for the Arena Theatre. The client trusted GPRS to provide the highest quality laser scan data in the shortest period of time.
