3D Scanning Services

About 3D Scanning Services

Welcome to our dedicated 3D laser survey service, where precision meets efficiency. We specialise in comprehensive 3D laser scanning services, providing a swift and cost-effective solution for capturing detailed physical data of objects and structures across various industries.

What is Laser Scanning?

3D laser scanning is a cutting-edge technology that uses laser light to precisely measure and capture the physical shape of objects, buildings, or environments. This non-contact method creates “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object, which then can be used to create detailed 3D models.

    How Laser Scanning Reduces Costs

    Our 3D scanning services streamline the data collection process, significantly reducing the time and labor typically involved in manual measurements. By minimising the need for physical scaffolding or intrusive measuring equipment, we not only lower the risk of errors but also decrease overall project costs. This efficiency of 3d building scanning is particularly valuable in complex environments or sensitive heritage sites where traditional methods can be disruptive or even damaging.

    What Scanners We Use for 3D Building Scanning

    To ensure the highest quality and accuracy, we utilise advanced scanning technology from industry leaders such as Leica and Faro. These scanners are renowned for their precision and versatility, enabling us to deliver top-notch results in various settings, from intricate industrial components to expansive architectural sites.


    3D Scan Services: What Can We Scan?

    Our capabilities of 3D scan services extend across a diverse range of applications:


    Machinery, plants, and pipelines.


    Historical sites, interiors, and exteriors of buildings.


    Site surveys and building progress assessments.

    Cultural Heritage

    Artifacts, sculptures, and archaeological sites.

    What Can Be Produced with 3D scanning services

    The data collected via 3D scanning services can be transformed into detailed digital twins, 3D CAD models, or BIM models, which are invaluable for design, analysis, and maintenance. These models assist stakeholders in visualising structures or objects in a simulated environment, facilitating better decision-making throughout the lifecycle of a project.

    Digital Twins

    With 3d scan services, you can create exact digital replicas of physical assets, systems, or environments for simulation and analysis purposes. Digital twins are essential for industries like manufacturing and urban planning, where ongoing monitoring and optimisation are crucial.

    3D Models

    With 3d building scanning, convert point cloud data into precise 3D models. These models are vital for design and planning, enabling engineers and architects to make modifications and see potential impacts before any physical changes are made.

    Building Information Modeling (BIM)

    Develop comprehensive BIM models that integrate detailed information about the physical and functional characteristics of a place. These models are extensively used in the construction industry to facilitate project management and to streamline the maintenance and operation phases of the building lifecycle.

    Virtual Reality (VR) Experiences

    Transform scan data into immersive VR environments, allowing users to explore complex spaces or historical sites virtually. This application is particularly beneficial for education, tourism, and cultural heritage preservation.

    Structural Analysis and Retrofitting

    Utilize detailed models for structural analysis or retrofitting projects. This is critical for ensuring the safety and longevity of structures, especially in earthquake-prone areas or aging infrastructure requiring refurbishment.

    Historical Documentation

    Preserve and document historical artifacts or architecture in their current state for future generations, using high-resolution 3D models that provide an invaluable archive for research and education.

    Our architectural firm required an urgent measured building survey and it was impossible to get an appointment but Adam from Manchester Measured Survey managed to squeeze us very next day which helped with project deadlines. We used them 4 times already and always get a professional and flexible approach and efficient turn around for drawings.
