Building Information Modeling (BIM)
- 3D Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning (or High Definition Surveying) is the ultimate measurement tool,
and with it we save our clients time and money.

Darling Geomatics has worked with some of the country's top companies

Building Information Modeling

  • Stay Under Budget - 3D laser scanning is fast,  highly accurate, and reduces field time compared to traditional surveying.
    Accurately Reconstruct Spaces - Pin-point data and models at your fingertips so you have a complete picture of each property and asset.
  • Survey from Your Desktop - Eliminate the need to send a survey crew to re-measure. Everything is accurately captured and ready for you to survey from your computer.

We Scan Your Project

We come to you and scan your job site. Millions of data points capture every detail from buildings, equipment and signs to foliage, gutters and curbs. There's no interruption in your workflow or day-to-day operations.

We Do the Work

Our engineers convert the captured data into the deliverables of your choice, from point clouds and TruView images to 3D Revit Models and 2D AutoCAD . Everything is accurate to within .6 cm and to your exact specifications.

You Get Deliverables

You receive models that show the true conditions of the space and can be measured from any point. Survey everything right from your desktop.

The Value of Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Building information modeling (BIM) increases the value and effectiveness of computer models by adding information to each object, creating more intelligent objects.  For example, by selecting a piece of steel or piping, a user can know size, catalog number, manufacturer, etc.  By incorporating temperature sensors into BIMs, green building technology can be used to save a tremendous amount of energy.  At the start of any BIM project is 3D laser scanning.

Darling's scans and models are the starting point of any BIM project. In general, the savings realized by using 3D laser scanning and BIM during design 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 to design and construct is reduced - and that reduces overall costs so much so that the US federal government General Services Administration (GSA) requires BIM on all government construction projects.  Also, it is much easier to deal with any future remodeling, expansions, and structural integrity analyses with a BIM model already in place.

Darling Environmental & Surveying 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.

Precise Data

If accuracy is important, Darling Geomatics is the right call to make. Our scans are accurate to within 6mm.

Fast Turnaround

Time is money. Our turnaround times from scan to deliverables will keep your project running smoothly and efficiently.

Budget Friendly

Darling Geomatics understands the budget constraints that businesses face today. We use many surveying techniques that are faster and less expensive than traditional methods.

Safety Conscious

Your people are your most precious resource. Our scanning processes don’t interrupt your workflow and don’t put people at risk.

Accurate Reconstructions

When working within existing structures, a hyper-accurate as-built scan can prove vital to staying within budget and time constraints.

Deliverables You Want

Not only do we survey within budget and time constraints we provide you with the deliverables you need to complete your work.
