Why should Architects use laser scanning technology?

In any architecture project accuracy and precision are essential. To fit with building regulations and their client’s requirements a comprehensive understanding of the building’s structure is integral.

This is where laser scanning technology plays a vital role. It provides accurate measurements which are highly precise along with detailed visualisations of the building. All of which help your client envisage the outcome of your project.

In this blog, we’ve highlighted some of the key benefits of using this technology and why you should incorporate it into your business.

1. Increased Accuracy and Precision

With our laser scanning technology, we capture millions of data points which creates precise 3D models of the buildings, both interior and exterior. The measurements that are produced can then inform floor plans, and elevations among other drawings. This technology allows architects to obtain accurate and precise drawings which isn’t possible with traditional methods. All of which means a higher quality of work and improved customer satisfaction.

2. Efficiency

At Space Captures our technology significantly reduces the time and effort which is usually required in traditional surveying methods. Depending on the size of the building laser scanning can be done within days or maybe even hours compared to the weeks and months of traditional methods.

Allowing architects more time on design. Which again, increases customer satisfaction.

3. Detailed Visualisation

Using our technology, we create detailed 3D models which provide a realistic representation of the design and structure of a building. Making working with the client on their requirements much easier and resulting in a successful project.

4. Structural Analysis

Did you know laser scanning can identify any issues with the structure of the building? By using this technology, we can identify any areas for concern and potential problems along with way. Which can avoid future safety issues and expensive delays.

5. Preservation of Historic Projects

If you have a project that is looking to preserve or restore historic properties whatever the size, laser scanning is an invaluable asset. We can document the existing building and identify the areas that require work.

Laser scanning is an essential tool for any serious architect.

As you can see above it lays the foundations for a successful project and improves customer satisfaction and communication.
