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 A Theatre To Generate A 3D Model

GPRS captured point cloud data to generate a 3D as-built model from which the client could take measurements and locate key features that could be affected by the seating renovation.
GPRS laser scanned a historic theater, including the main floor, three balcony levels, and box seats to generate a 3D Revit model for seating renovations. The target objects of data acquisition were structural features, including exposed columns and beams; and the architectural envelope of the audience area, including walls, floors, ceilings, doors, openings, railings, seats, floor, and lighting.
GPRS 3D laser scanned a historic theatre to generate a 3D Revit model for seating renovations.
GPRS 3D laser scanned a historic theatre to generate a 3D Revit model for seating renovations. Case Study: 3D Laser Scanning A Theatre To Generate A 3D Model Location: Philadelphia, PA Task: GPRS laser scanned a historic theater, including the main floor, three balcony levels and box seats to generate a 3D Revit model for seating renovations. The target objects of data acquisition were structural features, including exposed columns and beams; and the architectural envelope of the audience area, including walls, floors, ceilings, doors, openings, railings, seats, floor and lighting. Problem: The client did not have accurate as-builts to plan and layout the new seating and understand the grade of the main floor and balconies. Manually measuring for this would have been time consuming and less accurate. Solution: 3D laser scanning will provide the client precise, as-built documentation of the historic theater, including floor slope, balcony and ceiling heights. GPRS captured point cloud data to generate a 3D as-built model from which the client could take measurements and locate key features that could be affected by the seating renovation. Benefits: GPRS’ in-house CAD technicians created a 3D Revit model for the client. Revit families were created for all the varying features so that each layer could be selected or de-selected depending on which portion of the model was being analyzed by the client. Accurate data facilitates timely and cost-efficient decisions. The 3D model will be crucial to plan for enhancements that are made to the space. This model could further be used to study the room acoustics and how adding/removing/changing objects would impact the reflection of sound. GPRS Intelligently Visualizes The Built World® for our customers, nationwide. Our 3D laser scanning services specialize in point cloud processing and Autodesk® software implementation workflows. Certified laser scanning professionals have extensive experience in data collection. Our in-house Mapping & Modeling Team bring real world applications of the data to create meaningful models. For 3D laser scanning in Philadelphia, call GPRS. For 3D laser scanning services in theatres, arenas or stadiums, contact GPRS Laser Scanning. Certified scanning professionals have extensive experience in collecting point cloud data. GPRS generated a 3D Revit model of the theater’s structure, architecture and seating. The 3D model will be crucial to plan for enhancements that are made to the space. 3D laser scanning will provide the client precise, as-built documentation of the historic theater.

New Tenant Requests Laser Scanning To Plan Store Layout

A GPRS Project Manager 3D laser scanned 4,000 s.f. of existing retail space to provide 2D CAD drawings, a 3D virtual tour, a colorized point cloud, and a 3D BIM model to a client who was renovating a 30-year-old location.
Capturing 4,000 s.f. of Retail Space for New Tenant's Redesign
GPRS 3D Laser Scanning Services provided 3D reality capture, 2D CAD drawings, point cloud, a 3D virtual tour, and BIM model to redesign a retail location for a new tenant in Austin, Texas.
An Austin-based maker of cowboy boots and western wear was moving retail locationsThe previous tenant had occupied the location for more than 30 years The new tenant desired 2D floor plans and a 3D BIM model for a virtual walkthrough of the propertyThe previous tenant still occupied the active storefront, so scanning had to be completed after hours to avoid business interruptions Utilizing a Leica P-Series laser scanner, the GPRS Project Manager completed 24 scans of the 4,000 s.f property in one eveningLaser scanning captured measurements and virtual tour data to help the new tenant plan the store layoutGPRS Mapping & Modeling Team provided the tenant with a colorized point cloud, architectural 2D floorplans, a 3D BIM model, and virtual tour of the property 3D laser scanning is the fastest way to capture existing building conditions, documenting every detail into a digital mapMeasurements and point cloud data is accurate within 2-4mm to allow for accurate 2D and 3D as-builts3D virtual walk throughs allow the tenant to view the site remotely to easily plan and implement floor layouts and merchandisingWhile the renovations were initially designed in Rhino, the client planned to export Rhino models into Revit for further refinement and documentation

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.
