We offer a range of as-built surveys for architectural development. As the manipulation of point cloud data becomes more common throughout the industry, architects and engineers are increasingly utilizing point cloud information themselves.
If required Petra Point can scan and supply a registered point cloud in your chosen format. Production of architectural documentation is often the next step. From the point cloud data 2D floor plans, sections and elevations can be extracted and tailored specifically to the client’s specification.
3D CAD Models can be specified. These can be produced in wireframe, surface or solid format and typically delivered in DGN or DWG format. As with our 2D products the levels of detail can be tailored specifically the client’s specification.
While still true with more traditional 2D and 3D deliverables, within a BIM environment it is vitally important to develop a scope that accommodates the requirements of all stakeholders. A little collaborative time spent on day one will pay dividends throughout the lifecycle of the project.
Both level of detail (LOD), level of information (LOI) and an appropriate coordinate system should be carefully considered.

BENEFITS OF 3D LASER SCANNING:
Reducing time on site compared to traditional survey methods.
Data can be easily shared and reviewed by all stakeholders (see TruView product).
Full information about the shape and position of building elements leading to a lower risk of errors within a design (see clash detection product).
Digitising unique objects with full spatial and colour information.
In addition to the architectural recording and archiving the dataset can also be utilised in the production of marketing and visual material.
New methodology for orthoimages
3D LASER SCANNING IN HERITAGE BUILDING
3D laser scanning really comes into its own when utilised within the heritage environment. The ability to accurately capture complex and irregular features quickly and remotely has obvious benefits over traditional survey techniques. Combined with photographic imagery a comprehensive base dataset can be achieved.
