3D laser scanning provides a cost-effective method of surveying existing buildings and buildings under construction. Data captured ranges from the basic structural components to the finest detail, both inside and out. Data provides a snapshot in time which can be used for design or comparison in regards to facility upgrades, build-outs, renovations and restoration. Digital photos can be overlaid for added realism. WSP's accurate 3D laser scanning data can be integrated into Building Information Modeling (BIM) programs, adding value throughout the entire projects life cycle - from planning to design to con-struction to asset management.
