What is the Value of As Built Documentation?
Darling Geomatic's scans and models are the best way to assess as built conditions. In general, the savings realized by using as built 3D laser scanning have been 3 to 10 times the cost of the 3D laser scanning service provided by Darling.
Complex design and engineering changes to existing facilities are improved by BIM models. The time and money required to make on the fly design and constructing changes is greatly reduced if not eliminated- and that reduces overall costs so much so that the US federal government General Services Administration (GSA) requires BIM clash detection on all government construction projects. Clash detection makes it easier to deal with any future remodeling, expansions, and structural integrity analyses with a BIM model already in place.
Darling Geomatics specializes in collecting accurate as-built 3D laser scanning data for BIM use. Darling constructs standard CAD solid models from their 3D laser scan data that can be exported into Revit, Navisworks and many other CAD drafting formats. This as-built data is the basis for the BIM process on existing facilities or newly constructed facilities.

The completed solid model provides architectural, structural, electrical, plumbing, HVAC and other 3D as-built information for BIM models. Meta data of any form can be attached to the 3D objects, such as specific valve size, manufacturer, part number or any other information available for that object.
