3D Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning

Some contractors have access to scanners and a desire to self-perform, but time and time again the costs of DIY scanning is higher than outsourcing to professionals, particularly on large projects.

Our 3D scanning service, delivered by local teams and provided by our sister company Leica, is available nationwide. Use it for small and large projects alike without worrying about labor shortages, expensive equipment, inconsistent quality, slow data turnaround, or administration logistics.

We can provide point cloud data for your renovation project, scan during construction to verify and record as-built conditions or capture existing assets for ongoing facility management and maintenance.

Get started

Scan to Plan

Leveraging the accuracy of 3D laser scanning our scan to services team turn point cloud data into 2D as-built CAD drawings. Based on your requirements our team delivered architectural drawings in Autodesk AutoCAD DWG and DXF format.

  • Floor plans
  • Ceiling plans
  • Building sections
  • Roof plans
  • Interior & exterior elevations
  • Site plans
Learn more

Scan to BIM

We transform your 3D point cloud data into highly accurate 3D Building Information Models (BIM). As-built models are extracted from the captured scan data by our team or qualified Architects and Engineers.

  • Architectural base models – the building block for all modern renovation projects
  • Architectural Plus models – include built-in cabinetry, decorative mouldings, and other historical features
  • MEP models – mechanical, electrical, and plumbing modeling services

Use Cases

Healthcare Education Commercial Residential Industrial

Healthcare

Hospitals are complex facilities with critical infrastructure and a high density of MEP systems. The accurate documentation and digitization of these complex structures is critical to the success of any construction project or for ongoing facility management system.

Laser scanning provides a fast and non-intrusive method to capture healthcare facilities in precise detail allowing for the creation of accurate CAD drawings or 3D BIM models.

Education

Traditional methods for measuring buildings are time consuming and prone to error. Complex facilities like schools and universities often provide an impossible challenge to capture without the use of a modern 3D laser scanner.

Multivista can quickly scan these spaces in 3D and deliver a complete 3D picture, saving your team hours of time spent on site with measuring tape and clipboard.

The point cloud created by 3D laser scanning can also be linked to a georeferenced coordinate system via survey control, making it simple to visualize how each building on campus relates to the others.

Commercial

Precise 3D footprints are invaluable for both new commercial development and changes to existing structures. Often outdated plans cause costly mistakes which result in downstream project delays. 3D laser scans capture the true as-built situation on site and can be used to assess the impact of costly work before it’s performed, allowing you to propose multiple options for each property.

Trust Multivista to transform your commercial properties into information-rich and easily accessible digital assets with our 3D data capture services.

Residential

Whether a single-family home or a twenty-storey tower block the need for accurate as-built documentation to start or finish your project is critical. 3D scanning captures a precise 3D dataset of your projects real-world situation which can be shared to stakeholders throughout the globe via Multivista’s online platform.

Our fully immersive 3D walkthrough connects people to their projects allowing our clients to virtually visit site without leaving their office. Collaborate with colleagues using the high-resolution measurable imagery or download the 2D CAD or 3D BIM model deliverables created by our scan to services teams.

Industrial

Our 3D reality capture professionals collect fast, accurate and dense geospatial data for industrial projects, avoiding potential hazards and limiting disruption to sites and work areas. Our 3D specialists have scanned:

  • Water treatment plants
  • Telecommunication and data centers
  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Complex boiler and plant rooms

Once captured our scan to services team will extract accurate 3D models of all the MEP systems and elements visible on site.

BCIT has leveraged the Multivista web portal greatly through both this scanning project as well as some live construction webcams we’ve used.  It’s very intuitive.
