Case Study: Laser Scan Office Building to Capture MEP Features

TruePoint 3D laser scanned 40,000 square feet of office space.

Cincinnati, Ohio

TruePoint 3D laser scanned 40,000 square feet of office space on the 6th floor of a building in Cincinnati. The area was recently renovated and the objective was to capture MEP features to create an accurate as-built survey for the client. TruePoint’s scan technician used a Leica P40 ScanStation to capture 3D point cloud data and TruePoint’s in-house engineers created a 3D CAD model.

The client wanted to complete the laser scan after the space had been framed in, but before the ceiling grid and tiles were installed. This gave the client a very limited window of time to capture the above ceiling piping. They wanted to quickly and accurately capture all MEP components and pipes, so they could install the ceiling and begin to populate the space.

TruePoint maintained constant communication with the client to schedule the scanning just before ceiling grid was installed. With few days’ notice, the scan technician mobilized to the site. TruePoint’s experienced technician could ensure that 3D laser scan technology would completely and accurately capture the as-built site conditions. Laser scanning was completed while other contractors continued their work, and complex areas were scheduled during the hours when contractors were off-site.

TruePoint provided the client with Autodesk Recap files and Black and White Leica TruViews. Also, using preliminary EdgeWise extraction, TruePoint engineers provided an AutoCAD .dwg file to the client.

Added Value:
The scan technician worked during off-peak times, which expedited TruePoint’s time on site. Additionally, TruePoint’s engineers are trained and experienced in a numerous software applications, and can create custom deliverables for each client quickly. In this case, ClearEdge 3D Edgewise software was used to process piping and quickly create a 3D model.
