Historical 3D Laser Scanning Services

3D laser scanning can be used for a variety of historical building engineering applications, from existing as-built drawings to plan for maintenance, to historical documentation of architecture and more. The non-intrusive nature of 3D laser scanning provides a hands-off means of cataloguing fragile and important historical sites and objects. The precision of the data collected in this way can aid design and renovations with 2-4 mm accuracy to help you Visualize Your Built World™.

GPRS/TruePoint’s Project Managers are experts in in this technology and collect millions of precise data points with industry-leading survey-grade Leica laser scanners. A team of in-house architects, CAD designers and technicians works with each client to create custom drawings, maps, and 3D models to aid in the design, planning, and execution of any project.

We complete over 800 specialized scans annually and work directly with clients to design solutions to meet their historical restoration and renovation needs.

Our survey-grade Leica laser scanners have great benefits for accurate measurements, and also provide accurate spatial data sets. Civil engineers, plant designers, CAD professionals, architects, contractors, and owners/operators can all reap the cost and added-value benefits that 3D laser scanning provides.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Scanning Historic Buildings and Sites?

  • Elimination of costly return visits to the site
  • More accurate, complete as-builts for design and renovation
  • Minimized construction rework due to interferences
  • Accurate measurements for fabrication
  • Fast, unobtrusive scene capture
  • Non-contact leaves architecture untouched
  • Safe way to measure buildings that are no longer structurally sound.

"[The Technician] did a good job of getting up to speed and working with little or no direction, which helped us concentrate on our other needs on site."

Steve H.

Project Manager

"The scan helped tremendously and has saved us quite a bit of time and trouble."

Gene A.

Mechanical Integrity Engineer

"Thanks for jumping into this assignment so quickly. What a great and productive trip. You guys work tirelessly, non-stop with all aspects of the set-up and execution. Your ability to master the technology is a game changer for us."

Don A.

Executive Vice President, Director of Architecture, Engineering & Technology

"We have been very pleased with the results of the scanning process. The product has been very useful. And has certainly helped in the development of the project. I would certainly use GPRS/TruePoint again on future projects."

John G.

President & Principal Architect

"Our disciplines have been utilizing the Point Cloud and TruView information and it has been of value. We have discovered a few clashes with our structural steel, which may not have ever been caught, so I feel the service has already paid for itself."

Joseph G.

P.E., Project Manager
