Case Study: Laser Scanning Aids Client in the Installation of Fabricated Paneling

Location: Boulder, Colorado

Task: TruePoint’s 3D laser scanning services were used in Boulder, Colorado to capture the dimensions of an existing building façade for the installation of prefabricated paneling.

Challenge: The client was on a tight schedule and needed accurate measurements quickly. Traditional measurement methods with a standard tape measure could be inaccurate and take weeks to perform. Also, the client would need to rent a lift to take the measurements, which is an added expenditure.

Solutions: TruePoint Laser Scanning’s services in Denver captured 3D measurements in only a few hours on site. By utilizing 3D laser scanning, the client saved time on measurements, while increasing the accuracy and simplifying the fabrication process. This translates to substantial benefits by shortening turnaround times and ensuring exact panel fit. Plus, laser scanning had no impact on the ongoing construction operations.

Deliverables: TruePoint’s Architects and Engineers used the point cloud data to create a 2D drawing of the façade in only a few business days. These drawings were provided to the fabrication company providing them with timely and highly accurate drawings to make the fabrication process seamless.

Added Value: Choosing TruePoint Laser Scanning over traditional hand measurements saved time, money and potential inaccuracies. The client can also utilize the 3D measurements during other facets of the construction process and offer them to other professionals on the job site.
