Architectural Documentation Using 3D Laser Scanning

3D laser scanning aids the process of architectural design from site documentation, to monitoring construction progress, creating design models, and verifying as-built accuracy. TruePoint 3D Laser Scanning quickly and accurately provides comprehensive as-built documentation of a site unmatched by other technologies. From walls and windows to HVAC and plumbing, TruePoint can accurately identify and document all visible elements of a structure. This data lets your team focus on design rather than modeling existing conditions.

TruePoint’s team is highly experienced in laser scanning, modeling and data management. The precise data collected eliminates site revisits that eat up time and resources. The precision of laser scanning allows architects to work with the finer details of a jobsite without excessive traditional documentation.
