3D Laser Scanning To Expedite The Installation Of ACM Panels

The client was able to fabricate components offsite and plan a flawless installation based on our existing condition data and 3D model. Plus, GPRS' work was conducted entirely at night, mitigating any disruption to construction
Field verification to prefabricate ACM panels
Our client was installing ACM panels to the canopy of a newly constructed airport terminal. The construction plans did not match the existing conditions at the site. A deviation could cause a major issue. The installation process needed to be precisely planned to avoid rework.
The construction plans did not match the existing conditions at the site. The installation process needed to be precisely planned to avoid rework • The shape of the canopy was complicated and stood 65 feet in the air. The client needed field verification and a plan to expedite proper installation of the panels • Installers were working overhead in a lift; there was no room for trial and error Solution • The Project Manager conducted a site walk to devise a plan for the client • The canopy and curtain wall of the airport terminal were 3D laser scanned to capture precise as-built data and generate a 3D model and 2D drawings to facilitate ACM panel installation • 22" x 34" 2D CAD drawings were created with the panel layout for the client to take to the field. This allowed each panel to be labeled with a custom number, cut and shim points Benefits • Laser scanning obtained exact measurements for the client and took away any guesswork from this project • To circumvent the active construction site, the Project Manager scanned the site at night to eliminate movement and trades working • The client was able to fabricate components offsite and plan a flawless installation

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.

3D Laser Scanning a Historic Church for Restoration

To complete the restoration of the church, the client required accurate 2D CAD drawings with precise measurements of the structural and architectural elements.
Our client needed accurate as built documentation to complete a $1.2 million restoration and improvement project for a historic church. The 1875-built church in Glandorf, Ohio was the largest Roman Catholic church built at the time. Built in Neo-Gothic style, it contained a 225-foot spire, beautiful statues imported from Austria and stained-glass windows imported from Germany. In 2017, the church underwent a 3-month historic restoration and improvement project. The project involved preventive measures including fiber-glassing the interior walls, painting and installing updated storm windows to protect the stained glass. In addition, damaged sections of the archway and niches were repaired, and a ceiling was lowered in the vestibule to highlight a stained-glass window.
