Harnessing the Power of 3D Laser Scanning Technology

Posted on Apr 1, 2016 by

In order to provide our clients with the most advanced means of visualizing and analyzing project information, McMAHON has created the Geospatial Solutions Group.   Through a partnership with a local company, Theta UAV, we have access to state of the art aerial and terrestrial data acquisition solutions.  Our Building Information Modeling (BIM), Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and surveying professionals transform this data into 3-D models.  These models are an invaluable tool during planning and design phases, as well as long-term facilities operation and management.

Discover the Benefits of 3D Laser Scanning

Data Acquisition

  • Capture existing conditions with high resolution
  • More complete data collection with faster turn-around
  • Reduce exposure of field crews to confined or hazardous environments
  • Limit disruptions to traffic

Design Benefits

  • Design process begins with actual-built 3D conditions
  • Improved coordination with existing infrastructure
  • Reduce field discrepancies during construction phase

Asset Management Tool

  • Track and log assets throughout facility using 3D visual inventory
  • Decision-makers can access critical data for multiple facility locations
  • Pro-active scanning of entire facilities creates an accurate baseline for long-term operation, maintenance, and upgrade programs

Project Value

  • Reduce number of physical site visits
  • Improved assessment of existing conditions
  • Lower client’s risk exposure during design, construction, and post-construction phases

 

“State-of-the-art data acquisition capabilities combined with engineering expertise can deliver unprecedented values.”
