Cutting Construction Costs With 3D Laser Scanning Services
It's Especially Helpful for Retrofits
In the absence of a better name, “human measurements” have historically increased the cost of real estate construction. Architects and surveyors must be hired by developers to measure the interiors of buildings and the surrounding land, which adds time and human error to the process. One of the best ways to eliminate this human error is adopting 3D laser scanning services.
There are many benefits to construction and real estate when adopting 3D scanning services for their businesses.
For decades, various tech firms have been attempting to replace this with 3D laser scanners that scan buildings and terrain and produce accurate computer representations.
The technique is not widely used yet, but it is gaining attention steadily. Here is everything you need to know about using 3D laser scanning services and how the process works.
Who offers the services and how it works
Gabe Garza, a San Antonio-based entrepreneur who formerly worked with the military on remote sensing, owns Reckon Point. In light of this new technology, he has created a robot specifically designed for interior mapping.
When a customer requires measurements for a renovation or construction project, the operation begins. The 3D laser scanning service is a piece of equipment that is attached to four wheels that can be navigated. The machine then uploads the data to a computer, where it creates a 3D depiction comparable to AutoCAD’s.
The business may continue collecting measurements with the equipment during construction and send them back to Reckon Point. Since the company’s inception in 2014, Garza has found several customers that utilize the equipment for huge projects in the United States and Mexico.
3D laser scanning services allow for a crew to get precise measurements down-to-the-millimeter. This can help a construction team move faster because it takes away tiny errors that can hold up an entire team. It also collects information more quickly than humans ever could.
What kind of buildings can use 3D laser scanning services?
The best thing about this equipment is great for older buildings or buildings that need retrofits. It is a non-invasive way to collect information and store it for later use. It is also suitable for new buildings that needs surveyed before construction.
