Scan-to-BIM: How Point cloud to BIM Modeling impacts renovation and restoration of old buildings

Scan to BIM case study

Scan to BIM or “Point Cloud to BIM” is an innovative process of developing as built virtual models for further renovation and refurbishment of old buildings. Scans or point cloud images are developed through a “Laser Scanner” after scanning a building to get the measurements of the building site and other areas in as built conditions. Traditional methods permit measurement using measure tape and is long, tedious process.  Point cloud imaging or Laser scanning is a better and convenient process compared to physical measuring of sites.

Measuring companies in US, UK, Australia, Canada, Middle East and Europe is seeing significant advantages in using point cloud services. They are slowly and gradually ditching the traditional method. Using Scan to BIM Modeling services offers higher cost savings and efforts when they aim at creating highly detailed Revit BIM Models from laser scans. This data is extracted in form of “scan images” in raw format, later these images are “registered” and converted into “ RCS” or “RCP” formats so that these scans can be adapted and opened in Revit or any other BIM software. Revit BIM Models can be created effectively with all suitable details, Revit content, equipment schedules and later integrated to produce As-built drawings which can indicate renovation requirements in building. We can also develop proposed building design based on existing Model developed from point cloud.

Point cloud to CAD Drafting or construction drawings are also developed with an intention to use these drawings for installation on site. This process enables quicker construction and faster execution of project.  Contractors and End clients both find considerable time to review the designs, validate them and approve them on time before the site installation begins.  Onsite maintenance can continue while the point cloud scans are being converted to BIM Model.

With Scan to BIM Modeling technology, construction and design team jointly reap the benefits offered by point cloud to BIM Modeling services in India. There are many Indian CAD and BIM companies offering Point cloud to BIM Modeling services to Measuring Companies in USA, UK, EUROPE, Australia, Canada and UAE.

Scan to BIM Modeling companies in India take extreme efforts in providing standardized Revit Model with high level of detailing such as Revit Content, Schedules, 4D and 5D features etc.  Recently there is a major tunnel in Netherlands that is under renovation. Laser scan methodology is being used to renovate this tunnel in the most unique manner. This method is proving to be extremely cost effective resulting in quick construction as well.

10 Reasons to Adopt BIM

10 reasons to adopt BIM

BIM software is used by architects, engineers and builders to design buildings or any other complex construction BIM allows designer to create visualize and modify digital models of building designs. In BIM data is directly added to model dictating materials, functions, size and related information and this data can be linked to the elements of the model.

Scan To BIM – Renovate The Buildings With High Productivity

It’s absolutely correct that Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry is growing with an unbelievable speed, which provides a stunning contribution to the overall economic development of the country. A country can never get good infrastructure, without the growth of construction industry, which is accountable for developing towns, cities and suburbs. Higher efficiency throughout project lifecycle is important for all the project stakeholders and this efficiency can only be obtained with the implementation of high-end technology. Yes, it’s right that technology alone is not important until and unless it is used at the right time for a right purpose.

BIM Tools Are Essential For Executing Point Cloud Modeling Services!

Any idea what exactly are point cloud Modeling services? Where do we use them and why? Well, people who are familiar with Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry, they must also have a little knowledge about the tools and techniques used by building professionals for executing building projects. But those who do not know much about them, let me explain that point cloud Modeling services are used for developing the design of as-built buildings, when it comes to their renovation and refurbishment.

HVAC Systems – The Indispensable Needs Of Every Building

HVAC or Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning systems, which fall within the definition of mechanical building systems, remain extremely crucial for all the residential and commercial buildings.

Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning form an important part of a unique technology which is meant for providing high level of indoor environmental comfort to people occupying the building. In other words, the reason behind developing mechanical building systems is to maintain thermal comfort and to provide high-end indoor air quality to building occupiers.

How BIM helps the General Contractors in easing their works significantly!!!

The 3D BIM coordination model plays a significant role in the budget of the project and schedule even before the actual construction starts. Nowadays, the building information model is notably used in a construction project for performing multiple activities on the construction site and this model helps the design and construction professionals to take appropriate project decision. By changing the information included within the 3D model also assists the contractors to test the possible budget and schedule impact of the project.

Importance of Sustainable Building Design in today’s world!!!

Nowadays, sustainable building design has become necessity across the world. It is very important for us to make proper use of natural resources and save the remaining natural resources of the world.

Sustainable Development – To make a building design sustainable, each and every phase of design development should be considered minutely by architects, engineers, and other design as well as construction professionals. A construction project needs to be implemented with proper certification, such as, US Green Building Council (USGBC). The LEED process also verifies whether a building design has achieved the targeted energy efficiency or optimal performance goals or not.

Building Information Modeling – A Boon for Construction Industry

Nowadays, building information modeling has become an integral part of architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. When the design for a building system is developed, it is needed to represent all the building systems i.e. architectural, structural and MEP systems together. BIM assists the design and construction professionals to coordinate all the elements of the architectural, structural and MEP disciplines and develop a final 3D BIM Coordination Model for the construction project.
