Static and handheld laser scanners enable 3D digital preservation and analysis of a project in unprecedented detail.
Augmentation of static and handheld data now means access issues and shadows in data are a thing of the past.
Benefits of laser scanning
- Safer surveying. Because laser scanning equipment can be operated remotely and positioned far from the target, we safely capture data over places that are otherwise hard to reach or hazardous to survey
- Less disruption. Non-contact surveying means there is no need to close roads or shut down facilities, which costs time and money. We can survey quickly and without disruption, using our cutting edge workflows
- Versatile deployment. Our laser scanning equipment can be hand-held, mounted on a pole, or fixed to a vehicle or drone – giving us a huge range of options for preserving your site safely, even in complex and challenging environments
Terrestrial and mobile LiDAR survey applications
Laser scanning is extremely versatile. Typical applications include:
- Measured building surveys
- Industrial plant modelling
- Cliffs and retaining walls
- Street scenes (eg building facades and busy road junctions)
- Topographic surveys
- Architectural and heritage surveys
- Structures, including deformation/movement analysis
- Volumetric analysis (eg quarry stockpiles, ground works, cut and fill, etc)
- Buried assets such as culverts and tanks
- Scan to BIM
Our expert service
We always plan each LiDAR survey thoroughly, making sure the survey plan is tailored to meet your specific needs.
Terrestrial laser scanning and mobile laser scanning are often used together to ensure we capture as much data as possible, as efficiently as possible.
All our surveyors are 100% employed by Glanville: no freelancers or subcontractors.
We pride ourselves on making clear, concise deliverables to facilitate fast, confident decision making. We can produce 3D models and CAD drawings as required.
Our specialist in-house CAD team can produce 3D models and BIM objects using industry standard software such as Autodesk REVIT and Solidworks.
Open-source applications and guidance can be provided to facilitate your own interrogation and visualisation.
