      3D BIM Modelling ready to use and collaborate

      Our measured building surveyors provide a “scan to BIM” service to capture an existing space or building and produce a three-dimensional digital model for planning, designing, monitoring and project management. Our BIM survey captures the complete point cloud and imports data into BIM software such as Autodesk REVIT. The result is a detailed BIM 3D model ready to provide a virtual reality experience and allow professionals to collaborate and optimise their building projects.

      Why use a Scan to BIM service?

      • Design. Data from the BIM survey allows capturing measurements and understanding the site conditions and structure to complete the design phase efficiently and accurately.
      • Construction. BIM 3D models allow construction professionals to evaluate ongoing work and determine discrepancies from the original design. A Scan to BIM service enables the possibility to explore a virtual environment and identify any inaccuracies before the building phase. Ensure quality control and safety management is in place when analysing the BIM 3D model.
      • Facility management. A BIM Survey will provide documentation on a building’s design and its complete functionality. They will help improve the building performance through a 3D Visualisation of the structural analysis. Improve the FM functionalities by operating and managing with an accessible digital model.

      Possibilities & Formats

      Our Scan to BIM Surveys are conducted with laser scanning equipment, topographical equipment and drone equipment. We use the latest surveying technology in order to deliver high-demand detailed BIM 3D models to designers, developers, asset managers, engineers, architects and construction professionals.

      Review your existing structure within a single significant BIM model, to view all as built data efficiently. The detail of BIM models goes beyond 3D, you may also take advantage of 5D capabilities which cover the modelling, scheduling and sustainability of the building management.

      Our BIM Models are defined by your required level of detail and accuracy, indicating the most suitable definition for your building project and structure:

      LOD1 – Mass Model

      LOD1 – Mass Model

      • Solid, basic mass model of the building structure or site
      • Overall shape and major external elements
      • No structural openings like windows or doors, no services or architectural details

      LOD2 – Basic Structural Model

      • Major structural elements such as floor slabs, columns, beams modelled in a basic form
      • Doors and windows modelled as a openings, no families built
      • No services or architectural details
      • No furnishings or sanitary equipment
      • Typical level of detail for 1:200 survey

      LOD2 – Basic Structural Model

      LOD3 – Standard Architectural Model

      LOD3 – Standard Architectural Model

      • All structural elements
      • Primary architectural detail in simplistic form
      • External door and window modelled with details
      • Internal door shown in basic form
      • Sanitary equipment and major services modelled
      • Fixed furniture shown in basic form if requested, basic families created
      • Typical level of detail for 1:100 survey

      LOD4 – Detailed Architectural Model

      • All structural and architectural elements modelled in detail
      • Interior door shown in detail
      • Railings, services, fixed furniture, heaters modelled
      • Interior details such as skirting and cornice included
      • Families created with a higher degree of information
      • Typical level of detail for 1:50 survey (1:20 if requested)

      We hired Red Laser Scanning when we were redeveloping the property. The time frame for job completion was within a week and they did an excellent job. The pricing was clear, detailed, and paid for exactly what I needed.

      I have never seen a laser scanning service more efficient and easy-going such as Red Laser Scanning. Scanned was made the same week I received the quote and the drawings were here 3 days later. Very good company who deliver quick but quality results.

      We hired red laser for our building site and needed a measured survey. The team were really professional and friendly. I have hired a few companies in the past for a measured survey and found these guys not only did an excellent job but we also got our plans delivered back to us within days. Thanks!

      We have asked Red Laser Scanning to do our floor plans and point cloud for our planning application. Very professional service and Dimitri was very friendly when he came to do the survey. Also competitive pricing. Would recommend!

      Very good service! I was looking for a company which can do measured survey for my house in order to obtain planning permission. My architect quoted me twice more for existing plans. I came across Red Laser Scanning and booked the survey for the next day and received drawings three days after. Highly recommended!

      Scan to BIM survey service FAQ

      BIM stands for Building Information Modelling, a thorough process which allows industry professionals to plan, design and construct the structure of a building or site within viewing one 3D model.

      A BIM 3D model allows you to track the various stages of your building projects lifecycle to optimise and manage the performance of your project. Within one BIM model, you may control costs, review virtual reality experiences and photorealistic renderings of your existing structure. Our clients will be able to coordinate and collaborate on the planning of their building project.

      Using a measured building survey service is the most reliable and accurate way to ensure efficiency throughout the building project to produce your BIM 3D model. Our surveyors deliver a swift turnaround service in a proficient way, maintaining the accurate data of the time of survey.

      The cost of a scan to BIM survey service will depend on the extent of the area to be covered and the level of detail required by the client. We offer LOD3 or LOD4 models, depending on the complexity and detail required.

      Since a BIM 3D model can offer a digital representation of a structure within the environment where it will be built, architects and engineers can make better decisions throughout the lifecycle of a project and reduce risks. This particular product is extremely desired amongst professionals, therefore it is crucial to find a measured survey company with the complete training to produce highly accurate BIM models.

      Our as-built BIM 3D models are produced using Revit software. Our measured surveyors use laser scanning equipment, topographical equipment, or drone equipment depending on the required level of detail for your 3D model. The data is produced within a single point cloud file, and used as reference to build you BIM model.
