Rework in the normal construction process takes 30% of the time. In monetary terms, it's about 10% of the price. The need to make changes during the work process, corrections and rework results in wasted construction materials. Labor efficiency in this way of working does not exceed 60%.
The reason for this problem is incorrect calculations at the planning stage. Calculations are made incorrectly, not taking into account all the technological features. This order was previously considered normal. Currently, a solution to this problem has been found - it is the digitalization of the project with the help of point cloud modelling services.
How does it work?
A set of such solutions is called BIM technology. BIM technology is inextricably linked with 3D scanning or the point cloud scanning process. What is point cloud laser scanning? We will consider this question in this article. The implementation of this technology increases the speed of construction, ensures quality and helps the process of information gathering. This quality growth increases the company's competitiveness in the market. BIM modelling helps to effectively manage the construction life cycle.
Stages and Equipment
To create a digital model of a building, two components are sufficient: software and equipment. To date, the best programs are considered Autodesk, AutoCAD, Dynamo, B-process, Revit and others. The equipment used is an expensive laser scanner or a point cloud scanner.
Revit has a lot of power. It makes it possible to model two- and three-dimensional concepts for future building. Modelling is based on different rules, depending on the type of work. For example, point cloud Autodesk selects one algorithm for construction, another algorithm for renovation or demolition. There are also some of software solutions to help convert CAD to point cloud.
Revit performs similar functions. Additionally, it helps to optimize routine processes in construction. Revit has its collection of designs. It has a variety of industrial and civil engineering concepts.
Powerful laser scanners are used to create a point cloud. It doesn't take much time to get the point cloud from photos. The laser beams reflect on the terrain or building and form a point cloud. Connecting these points gives the basis of a 3D model of the object.
Where it is used?
Any processes that will take place in an already erected structure can be learned by using BIM technology. This is due to the translation into the digital scale of all knowledge about the materials, manufacturability of certain building solutions, as well as climatic conditions, the intensity of operation and much more.
BIM technology based on laser point cloud is used in the planning of construction, reconstruction, repair and demolition of civil and industrial buildings.
How much does it cost?
PMTech works a flexible system for calculating the cost of services. The amount of work is calculated using two methods: volume of work and hourly rate. If the initial data is ready and the task is formulated as accurately as possible, then the volume of work rate is applied. If there is a need to collect data and build a project concept, the hourly rate is applied.
In addition to specialist services, we offer laser scanning services. Laser scanning helps to build a laser point cloud, which ultimately forms the basis of a 3D model of the object.
PMtech offers 3D scanning and 3D modelling solutions. The implementation of these technologies allows:
- Increase the efficiency of construction contracting, reach a new level of quality and save money;
- Ensure the quality and compliance of all construction processes with the design objectives;
- Perform intelligent data collection, analysis and implementation of standard reporting;
- Produce everything quickly, directly on site.
We apply for the latest advances in software to our work. We have experience of implementation in large companies in Dublin and Ireland. When you first learn about the technology, the client has many questions: What are lidar point clouds? Does lidar work in clouds? How to make it profitable and many others. If you have any questions about how to create a 3D model of your project, we recommend contacting us. You do not need to buy expensive hardware and software. We have everything need for a point cloud scanning service.
