How Can GPRS Laser Scanning Help You?

GPRS is dedicated to delivering the highest quality 3D laser scanning services, using state-of-the-art equipment, technology, and processes.

We have built a team of elite Project Managers that can quickly mobilize to service any location in the United States. Our Project Managers undergo an extensive training program to ensure their competence in terms of laser scanning equipment and field knowledge, to provide accurate as-built data for your project.

We use industry-leading Leica survey-grade laser scanners to capture 2-4 millimeter accurate layout, dimensions, and locations of your project requirements, such as architectural, structural, and MEP features, walls, windows, doors, stairs, roof, railings, exposed columns, beams, equipment, piping, ducts, and more in the form of a point cloud. Data is complete, clean, accurate and well filtered with low range noise.

Point clouds provide powerful and dynamic information for a project. By representing spatial data as a collection of XYZ coordinates, point clouds deliver large datasets that can be mined for information. The visualization and analysis from this data is invaluable for decision making.

At GPRS, our in-house team of CAD technicians transform point clouds into customized deliverables such as 2D CAD drawings, 3D BIM models, 3D mesh models, TruViews, and 3D virtual tours at any level of detail for visualization, analysis, design, construction, renovation, prefabrication, and facility modifications.

Our project team works together to deliver the project requirements -- on time and on budget.

GPRS has provided 3D laser scanning and modeling services for some of the best-known companies in the United States, such as Turner Construction, AECOM, Stantec, Gilbane, Arcadis, Ford, Whiting-Turner, Marathon Oil, Jacobs, Gensler, Perkins&Will, Barry-Wehmiller Design Group, Populous, NASA, Disney, CDM Smith, WSP USA, Brown & Caldwell, and Osborn Engineering, to name a few.

Whether you’re actively embracing 3D laser scanning or on the fence about the technology, GPRS can help you reach your goals. Some clients are relatively new to laser scanning, so we offer comfort and assurance by walking them through the entire process, from pre-planning to final deliverables.

3D Laser Building Scanning

As-Built Surveys

As-built surveys have never been more accurate than with 3D laser scan technology. 3D laser scanning captures exact building dimensions, locations and layout – information that is crucial to the success of your project. Items are often moved, added or removed from the original plan, making as-builts invaluable for design, construction, renovation and facility modifications.

3D BIM Modeling

3D BIM models are accurate digital representations of a building or site to facilitate design, construction and operational processes. 3D BIM models provide clients with the ability to break down architectural, structural and MEP building features and see how they fit into a single finalized structure. Users can isolate and alter walls, columns, windows, doors, etc. to support the planning and design needs of any project.

BIM System

Clash Detection & Prefabrication

3D laser scanning captures as-built site conditions with a high level of precision, helping to identify potential clashes, fabricate components and plan a flawless installation. Information can be shared with other teams to ensure everyone is on the same page and can coordinate their work effectively. This saves time, money and headaches by preventing costly modifications in the field.

Mixed Reality Development Models

3D laser scanning can be used to create 3D models and 3D mesh files for use in mixed reality, projection mapping and 3D gaming. When generating virtual reality experiences, computer-generated objects must precisely interact with the physical environment. 3D laser scan technology documents real-world environments with millimeter precision and reconstructs them into a dimensionally-accurate 3D digital representation. Assets are delivered in high-detail with texture, the perfect element for stunning visualization applications.

Above and Below Ground Data 3D Scanning

Above and Below Ground Data Capture

The combination of laser scanning and ground penetrating radar captures precise documentation of aboveground existing conditions and subsurface information. Receive clear and understandable findings of structural, MEP and field markings in point cloud data format, 2D site plans and 3D models. Accurate data allows clients to expedite design planning, extract 3D coordinates and measure distances, along with the ability to mark-up and share this with project teams. Receiving critical site information will lower project risks and increase project efficiency.
