We employ high-precision 360° laser scanners to generate precise as-built measurements and object scans, thereby producing digital representations of structural reality. Whether the project involves historical structures, technical installations, or deformation assessments, we would welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of laser scanning technology during a scheduled meeting and provide you with a service quotation.

High Precision CAD-Drawings

Our as-built plans exhibit an exceptional level of precision that surpasses traditional standards. We possess the capability to depict specific building elements, such as windows, doors, and fixtures, with a remarkable scale of detail, down to 1:10 scale. Furthermore, we have the capacity to automatically measure and furnish precise data on pipes, machinery, and equipment, all of which can be readily supplied upon request, including retrospective assessments.

As-built survey for heritage buildings

Historic structures pose distinct structural engineering demands and complexities. Meeting the stringent criteria set by heritage preservation authorities for accurately capturing the structural state, intricate geometries, and façade intricacies within CAD systems or as photographic documentation can often escalate project expenses. We provide cost-effective, high-quality solutions for imaging processes, including ground-based pointcloud imaging or photogrammetry, as well as aerial surveys using drones. Our precise surveying techniques and meticulous as-built surveys not only yield a wealth of supplementary data but also facilitate precise heritage conservation and restoration planning, ultimately streamlining project costs.

Pointcloud Imaging

The scaled documentation of objects using rectified photographs primarily serves the purpose of documenting facades, ceilings, or floors. It serves as the foundation for various applications, including as-built documentation, material and damage assessment, as well as area and quantity estimation. An alternative approach is provided by terrestrial laser scanning. The orthographic representation of the point cloud eliminates the need for the rectification process required in photogrammetry, thereby reducing inaccuracies.

Rectified measurement images, whether in colour or greyscale, can be generated as a by-product of an as-built survey. However, it's important to note some drawbacks compared to photogrammetry, such as potential measurement shadows, occasional imperfections in colour pixel alignment with measurement points, and missing data points. Notably, significant advantages arise when the initial survey is conducted on-site using a 3D laser scanner. In such cases, pointcloud orthogonal images derived from the laser scanner's point cloud data become valuable by-products, obviating the necessity for a separate on-site survey.

In situations where a separate on-site survey is still required, such as for documenting a historically listed structure, pointcloud imaging can often be generated based on existing point cloud data.


Another supplementary product is the Scanviewer. We employ 3D laser scanning to measure buildings, enabling the integration of various details into plans, at any timeline during or after the project. Along with the pointcloud data, we also provide a 360°-Scanviewer, allowing each scan to be viewed as a 3D panorama image with in-built measurement capabilities. This enables the retrieval and subsequent measurement of structural information that may not be apparent in the plans. The Scanviewer serves as documentation of the current state and for the purposes of referencing during the planning process. With Faro WebShare, a standalone file is made available that can be executed without the need for any software installation. Each scan is presented as a highly detailed 360° panoramic image, with each pixel linked to a spatial coordinate due to the inclusion of spatial 3D point clouds within the software. Additionally, all scans are geolocated within a floor plan overview, depicting the viewing direction. It's important to note that the Scanviewer can only be provided for areas that comply with data privacy regulations.

Facade Surveying

Facade surveying and facade elevation views may become necessary during a construction project for several reasons. These include serving as a planning foundation for architectural designs, providing a basis for documenting heritage-protected facade designs, or facilitating the production of marketing material for retail of the building. The generation of such elevation views may be required. Through the use of 3D-Laserscanning for measurement purposes, we achieve high levels of precision and coverage for our facade measurements and surveying. Furthermore, we have the capability to produce colour or greyscale point cloud images that allow for a precise documentation of the existing condition down to the centimetre level.

3D Mobile Mapping

With the assistance of Mobile Mapping systems such as the Geoslam ZEB Horizon, large areas can be rapidly captured in 3D. When cost-efficiency and swift 3D data acquisition are essential, especially in rental residential or commercial spaces, Mobile Mapping can offer an effective solution. We utilize LIDAR scanners equipped with 16 sensors that can record up to 300,000 points per second, boasting a resolution of approximately 1 centimetre and a range of up to 70 meters.
