Scan to BIM is a Win for Cost-Effectiveness in Post Construction
Scan to BIM is your ticket to saving money in building restoration and expansion.
Toronto, ON – April 10th, 2017 – Scan to BIM is making waves in the AEC industry for its numerous benefits in post construction, particularly in facility management and retrofitting projects.
In this press release, BluEntCAD will shed some light on how Scan to BIM technology is revolutionizing construction firms across the globe.
Project Lifecycle Benefits
If you’re wondering “What is Scan to BIM?”, check out our blog post on the subject here.
What you need to know is that Scan to BIM uses laser scanning to create a point-cloud map of a building, which can then be used to create a comprehensive 3D model with unparalleled accuracy.
Scan to BIM is known for its usefulness in building restoration, but there has been an upsurge in using the processes to upgrade your average facility into a high-performance building that integrates best practices in sustainability and operations.
Regardless of a structure’s current state, using BIM to renovate a space is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to get the benefits of a brand-new building.
Here are three key ways that Point Cloud Scan to BIM is being used in the project lifecycle:
- Bidding: 3D laser scanning enables clients to remotely obtain orthographic projections for survey. Thus, design teams gain access to precise data regarding dimensions and measurements that facilitate more accurate cost estimates and pricing.
- Construction Documentation: The precision and comprehensiveness of the design data that Scan to BIM technology is able to capture reduces errors in construction documentation, improving design, reducing rework, and streamlining troubleshooting.
- Post construction: The benefits of Scan to BIM Revit in post construction are endless. From day-to-day facility management to planning future development to marketing a newly renovated building, laser scanning combined with BIM technology is a must have for managing buildings over the long term.
Optimizing Post Construction Workflows
The main value that Scan to BIM offers construction firms, architects, MEP engineers and building owners is total control over renovation and expansion.
This is applicable to a wide range of industries, including healthcare, retail, the public sector, and real estate. Point Cloud Scan to BIM can even be effectively used to manage infrastructure projects thanks to GIS integration.
Archinect identifies 7 key post construction benefits of Scan to BIM Services:
- Continuous access to a comprehensive building information model (BIM)
- Opportunities for facility management applications (eg. space management, plant management)
- Instant procurement of existing room measurements for rental or valuation purposes
- Effortless review of future alteration and addition plans
- Streamlined energy efficiency survey or audit processes
- Confirmation of as-built systems as evaluated against LOD400 digital fabrication BIM
- Enhanced creation of virtual fly-throughs of existing structures
