Point Cloud BIM Services for Building Renovation

Point Cloud BIM Services for Building Renovation

Scan to BIM Services is another chip in the block within the construction industry. This new entrant in a short while has become a part of Building Information Modeling Services. Scan to BIM services is an innovative technique that helps the development of 3D, 4D or 5D BIM Modeling services of any old or existing construction demanding renovation or repairs.

Cloud scanning machine or a laser scan machine can scan a building in depth and these files can be later exported to BIM software such as Revit to generate a 3D model from the point cloud images or laser scans. Design validations can be applied by coordinating the Revit model with existing as-built drawings or scans.

Scan to BIM Services is also known as 3D Laser Scanning Services or Point Cloud BIM Services. These set of Revit modeling services have evolved significantly in countries like Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. Earlier in absence of cloud point services or even BIM Services, renovation projects had huge constraints. Existing Buildings were measured physically, pictures were clicked and then converted into “2D As-built drawings”. After this strenuous process building construction took place. Clashes were not detected either were design changes requirements identified. Developing 2D CAD drawings as built was indeed very difficult for old monuments or historical buildings owing to its intricate moldings and architectural detailing. Owing to all these issues, limitations and absence of digitization of Building Information Modeling Services, renovation of buildings incurred huge losses in terms of money and time.

Using Point Cloud to BIM Services, one can easily compare the as-built conditions of an existing building with the new design. Revit Modeling Services with help of laser scan also help you in enhancing existing building designs. If the design or plan of an old building structure is not available to you, you can use 3D laser scan services to scan existing building and later using Revit modeling services to convert it into usable building information models. Scan to BIM Services are used to scan existing Structural and MEP components which can be later imbibed within the final Revit model.
Point Cloud BIM Modeling services process also you in performing 4D scheduling and simulations (4D BIM Services) effectively. Using Scan to BIM services you can work on demolition projects very cost effectively within quick turnaround time.

Using Point Cloud BIM Services, you can perform cost estimation – 5D BIM Services efficiently. You can estimate costs of materials, resources and other things proficiently based on demolition work, existing to remain and new work. For example, the cost for replacing a pipe and the cost for re-insulating a pipe is different.

Application of Point Cloud BIM Modeling Services
Point Cloud BIM modeling Services are used for

  1. Creating 2D construction drawings from 3D building information model which is produced through point cloud BIM Modeling services
  2. Measuring floors for checking floor flatness
  3. Measuring walls for checking verticality of walls
  4. Comparing new designs with an existing condition
  5. Comparing as-planned designs with as-built designs

Point Cloud BIM Modeling Services have a significant role in the evolution of construction industry. Laser scanning services help Engineers in reconstructing or renovating an old building accurately.
