GPRS 3D Laser Scanning Services in Tennessee

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.

Laser Scanning Manufacturing Facility for Capital Improvement Project

A Revit model will expedite design changes and fabrication of equipment to increase production capacity at the manufacturing plant.
3D laser scan a manufacturing facility that is receiving upgrades to three of its lines to capture point cloud data and generate a 3D Revit Model.
A specialty compound manufacturer was upgrading three manufacturing lines at its plant as part of a larger capital improvement plan.
A specialty compound manufacturer was upgrading three manufacturing lines at its plant as part of a larger capital improvement plan.The facility was originally built in the 1980's and has expanded several times over the years.Multiple levels in the facility needed scanned at a very high level of detail, capturing structural, architectural, MEP and civil elements, along with a site plan.The following areas required 3D laser scanning services:On the ground production level, GPRS captured extruder areas for lines 1-3 and process equipment.On the mezzanine level, GPRS captured mixers for each extrusion line.On the second floor, GPRS captured blender areas for lines 1-3, process equipment, air handling equipment, and additional rooms.Outside, GPRS captured the tank farm and silo farm. GPRS provides 3D laser scanning services for facility upgrades and expansions, delivering 2-4mm accurate dimensions of building infrastructure: structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing features; furnaces, equipment, conduit and piping. With an accurate, comprehensive data set, plant engineers can install new equipment and upgrade the three manufacturing lines. The facility was 3D laser scanned on the weekend to minimize interruption to the manufacturing lines.73 scans were performed in one day with the Leica P40 ScanStation and the Leica RTC360 laser scanner, acquiring very high detail of the plant.Colorized point cloud, TruView Viewer files, and a Revit model were delivered to the client. 3D laser scanning and a Revit model will expedite design changes and fabrication of equipment to increase production capacity.The investment of laser scanning will reduce the project timeline, minimize downtime and change orders -- providing cost savings for the client.This client is pioneering innovation in its industry -- upgrading the lines with updated extruders will increase capacity for long-term growth while minimizing stoppages, set-up times, and scrap material.

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.

Oil Tank 3D Laser Scan

For oil tank replacement, the true shape and condition of the tank can be critical for ensuring that the new design fits the existing conditions; reducing costly delays or rework.
GPRS provided terrestrial-based 3D laser scanning services for a 25' x 25' x 30' oil tank near Topeka, Kansas. The objective was to capture the existing conditions of the tank, piping, flanges, nozzles, structural steel, pipe supports, and grade.
3D laser scanning by GPRS for an oil tank replacement.
3D laser scanning by GPRS for an oil tank replacement. Case Study: Oil Tank 3D Laser Scan Location: Emporia, Kansas TASK: GPRS provided terrestrial-based 3D laser scanning services for a 25' x 25' x 30' oil tank near Topeka, Kansas. The objective was to capture the existing conditions of the tank, piping, flanges, nozzles, structural steel, pipe supports and grade. PROBLEM: The client was upgrading the oil tank and needed 3D laser scanning to plan for the removal and replacement. For tank replacement, the true shape and condition of the tank can be critical for ensuring that the new design fits the existing conditions; hence reducing costly delays or rework. All piping, nozzles and structural steel around the tank was reality-captured so the new tank could be designed with proper fit and without interruptions to the unit. SOLUTION: 3D laser scanning provides a way to quickly and accurately obtain the existing condition information. The exact dimensions of a tank can easily be determined to ensure that fabrications match the existing structure. In less than 5 hours on site, the GPRS Project Manager captured the as built conditions of the existing tank and nozzles. Once the point cloud was registered, GPRS Mapping & Modeling CAD technicians delivered the point cloud data for the client to incorporate into their design model. GPRS delivered Intensity Map Point Cloud files, RCS Files and PTG Files to the client. BENEFITS: GPRS uses Leica Laser scanners, which can also capture images to further enhance the collected data. These images, called TruViews, were provided to the client and offer factual record of the areas inspected. GPRS is an experienced 3D laser scanning company. Our knowledgeable Project Managers confidently scan complex jobs with extreme safety requirements. For this job, the technician used an intrinsically safe laser scanner, since any spark would cause an explosion for this particular tank farm. Delivering the point cloud data gives the client the ability to do clash detection for interferences, saving them time and money in the field.
