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.

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

GPRS Develops As-Built Model to Convert Historic Building into a Luxury Hotel

3D laser scanning aids the process of architectural design from the early stages of site documentation and conceptualization, to monitoring construction progress and verifying as-built accuracy.
GPRS Laser Scanning developed an as-built model to aid this client in converting a historic building into a luxury hotel. GPRS provided 3D scanning services for a 250,000 square-foot building, including the exterior facades, floors 1-4, basement, roof, penthouses and mechanical spaces. GPRS’ team of in-house architects, engineers and CAD Technicians delivered point cloud files, a 3D model, and TruViews to the client.

Quote from GPRS Team Member: “The scanning and modeling teams worked around the clock, sometimes 7 days a week, to complete this project. The hard work paid off and we’re thrilled with the result – one of our most highly-detailed architectural 3D models to date.” - Nate Baker, GPRS Service Line Leader – 3D Laser Scanning Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Task: GPRS Laser Scanning developed an as-built model to aid this client in converting a historic building into a luxury hotel. GPRS provided 3D scanning services for a 250,000 square-foot building, including the exterior facades, floors 1-4, basement, roof, penthouses and mechanical spaces. GPRS’ team of in-house architects, engineers and CAD Technicians delivered point cloud files, a 3D model, and TruViews to the client. Challenge: The client was challenged with acquiring highly detailed architectural data including walls, ceilings, floors, stairs, balustrades, colonnades etc., and structural data including exposed columns and beams to design the renovation. Due to the size of the building and the ornate features, traditional methods would have taken months to complete and would not have been as accurate or anywhere near as detailed. Solutions: The GPRS scan technician completed 1,680 laser scans in 15 days (an average of over 100 scans per day!) with a Leica P20 ScanStation. A 3D Revit model with varying degrees of LOD 200 and LOD 300 modeling was generated by GPRS’ engineers based on the client’s instruction. Some areas of the building, such as the main lobby and exterior facades, required finer modeling detail over 350. This was deciphered through several project scope conferences between GPRS and the client. Deliverables: GPRS delivered point cloud files (.rcs file formats), a 3D Revit model and TruViews to the client. GPRS worked closely with the project architect to review the model in real time utilizing BIM360 software for shared viewing of the model in its current state throughout the 2-month project. Added Value: 3D laser scanning aids the process of architectural design from the early stages of site documentation and conceptualization, to monitoring construction progress and verifying as-built accuracy. Aside from the benefits of quickly and accurately creating detailed as-built drawings of a site, the data acquired through laser scanning has continued value throughout the project's life. Laser scanning and modeling is exploding in the AEC industry. 3D laser scanning creates a smooth BIM workflow, from the acquisition of data to a polished 3D model. Scan to BIM services are becoming more popular as the need for intelligent 3D CAD models grows.

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
