Intelligently Visualize Your Built World™ With GPRS Bim Modeling
GPRS provides BIM modeling services to help a multitude of industries Intelligently Visualize The Built World™. Our scan-to-BIM services allow clients to capture, analyze, and define existing conditions through safe, non-contact laser scanning. We have saved our clients millions of dollars in downtime and cost overruns with 3D BIM models to aid in design, visualization, space definition, prefabrication, and clash detection.
Precise data delivered in an easy-to-understand format helps plan for projects without the expense and worry of unknown interferences and conflicts.
Laser scanning is an ideal technology for Building Information Modeling (BIM) thanks to its efficiency, accuracy, and level of detail. Laser scanning accurately documents as-built conditions and proves to be invaluable in facility asset management and modifications.
GPRS has earned a national reputation for delivering excellent service in the BIM 3D scanning industry and have completed hundreds of projects every year on time and on budget. Our 3D Laser Scanning Project Managers are elite technicians who collect millions of precise data points for a building or site with industry-leading, survey-grade Leica equipment.
GPRS Designers and Technicians have mastered the technology for converting laser scanned point clouds into BIM-ready, 3D models to support the planning and design needs of any project.
What is BIM?
Building information modeling (BIM) is an intelligent software modeling process that engineers, contractors, and architects (AECs) can use to collaborate on a building’s design, construction, and operation. It’s more than just a model. It’s a process of collecting and managing data throughout a building’s entire life cycle.
BIM encompasses not only geometry and spatial relationships, but it also documents building features, such as specific information about the type of materials used, the quantity used, and how those characteristics impact the building as a whole. BIM can be thought of as a database of information ranging from project materials and cost – to the 3D model after construction – to operation of the facility. This information can be used to actively manage a project from inception to completion, and is one of the ways GPRS helps you Intelligently Visualize The Built World™.
How Can BIM Support Your Project?
BIM enables engineers, contractors, and architects to work on a single project from anywhere in the world. It condenses a plethora of information about every detail into a workable format. BIM makes for easier design, simpler coordination between team members, and easier structure maintenance across the entire built environment.
Is BIM Just for Large Projects?
BIM brings comprehensive site information and value to every project, no matter its size. Providing your team with BIM can expedite planning, improve workflows, and increase collaboration – which means that implementing BIM can save both money and time, regardless of the project scale and complexity.
Who Uses BIM?
75% of AEC companies use BIM to some extent. A study from Dodge Data and Analytics, “Measuring the Impact of BIM on Complex Buildings,” found these results from AEC pros:
- 93% said BIM improved the quality/function of the final design
- 88% said BIM led to accelerated job completion
- 85% said BIM resulted in a reduction in the final construction cost
AEC companies are realizing that planning virtually before beginning construction brings huge cost and time savings. The AEC industry is going through a digital transformation, trending to the use of digital twins. This means data-rich 3D BIM models are a must. Plant managers are using scan-to-BIM for asset management and upgrades. General contractors are using scan-to-BIM for virtual design planning and fabrication. Architects are using scan-to-BIM to restore historic buildings… And the list goes on and on.
AEC is driving a technical evolution in construction that facilitates a project's success and BIM is the perfect solution.

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