3D Laser Scan of RICS Parliament Square HQ (Part 2)
If you're a contractor looking to step up your tech game in the highly-competitive construction industry, 3D laser scanning could be the next logical step towards making your jobs more efficient saving you time and money. In this short course, B1M provides an exclusive look at a 3D laser scan of the RICS Headquarter Building in Parliament Square, London, UK.
3D laser scanning emits millions of laser lights and by timing their return, can accurately and precisely calculate their 3D locations, to produce multiple high-speed scans, brought together into one system. It works by digitally capturing the dimensions and spatial relationships of objects using the reflection of laser light.
The technology has a wide array of on-site applications, including pre-construction as-built drawings, Building Information Modelling (BIM), Virtual Design Construction (VDC), Quality Control during construction and comparing design intent to as-built conditions. After completing the second part of this two-part series, you will have an understanding of the process on how the 3D laser scan was done at the RICS headquarters in London, and see the results.
