GPRS 3D Laser Scanning Services in Michigan

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.

3D Laser Scanning Delivered Critical Dimensional Analysis for Wind Turbines

GPRS provided critical dimensional verification to ensure a flawless installation, reduce delays, clashes, and other unforeseen challenges for the project team
GPRS partnered with two renewable energy companies constructing an offshore wind farm to verify that the prefabricated components of several wind turbines met the specified design requirements
GPRS aids renewable energy projects with precise as-built data for design, construction, and maintenance. From solar panel installation to wind farm construction, we deliver accurate data for your project needs. 3D laser scanning captured complete and accurate dimensional information to verify that the prefabricated components were in tolerance for the design drawings Precast concrete foundations were laser scanned and a CAD comparison was performed to confirm that the dimensions matched the design planSubstation topside steel platforms were laser scanned to provide accurate as-built dimensions of all three levels and report the maximum outside diameter of the structure The Mapping & Modeling Team delivered 2D CAD drawings and a 3D BIM model, detailing the as-built dimensions and deviation between the design model and actual component 3D laser scanning captured complete and accurate dimensional information to verify that the prefabricated components were in tolerance for the design drawingsPrecast concrete foundations were laser scanned and a CAD comparison was performed to confirm that the dimensions matched the design planSubstation topside steel platforms were laser scanned to provide accurate as-built dimensions of all three levels and report the maximum outside diameter of the structureThe Mapping & Modeling Team delivered 2D CAD drawings and a 3D BIM model, detailing the as-built dimensions and deviation between the design model and actual component
The construction of a wind turbine required shipping prefabricated components on a vessel out to sea and using a crane to assemble Verification of the prefabricated component measurements within tolerance of the design drawings ensured a flawless installation Unique construction conditions meant there was no time to troubleshoot installation problems or add additional site visits and time at sea

GPRS Located, marked, and mapped all utility and sewer lines at Manufacturing Facility, and provide comprehensive infrastructure data management for O&M purposes. The manufacturing facility needed a permanent record of their 60-acre facility’s buried infrastructureData needed to be secure, yet easily accessible for facility manager and their teamPerdue previously spent $100,000 on a full site scan, but the contractor left them with only the field markings and hand-drawn utility maps The manufacturing facility was familiar with GPRS’ capabilities, having previously hired us for utility locatesExisting relationship between the two companies led to the manufacturing facility hiring GPRS to locate and map the entire facility’s buried infrastructure, and conduct drone flyovers of the siteThis accurate, field-verified data was uploaded into SiteMap® Pro, where the manufacturing facility has 24/7, secure access The facility had secure, 24/7 access to accurate, field-verified infrastructure data that they can use for future O&MGPRS and the facility entered into a SiteMap® Pro agreement, where Perdue will pay a subscription fee to continue to have access to their infrastructure data

Alt Tag: Theater steps. Caption: GPRS provided the highest quality laser scan data in the shortest period of time. 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.
