3D Laser Scanning - Power and Utilities

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

Power and Utilities

  • 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 Power and Utilities Surveying (BIM).

Traditional methods of measuring power generation or substations can take weeks with several crew members, several site visits, and substantial safety risks. 3D laser scanning and UAV (drone) surveys have changed the way engineers design, develop and upgrade substations.

3D laser scanning is very useful in power generation facilities seeking to upgrade or replace parts of the plant. How would you accurately measure pulverized coal piping that weaves up through four floors to a burner? With our 3D laser scanning equipment, it's less difficult (and less expensive) than you think.

One local engineer was able to utilize our 3D models to reduce his substation expansion design time from 20 days to 1 day.

Darling measures a typical substation in less than five hours without touching anything. This avoids costly downtime and interrupted electrical service to customers. Our crew stays a safe distance from dangerous high voltage areas. We eliminate the need to revisit a site to collect more measurements. Our electrical utility clients are thrilled to receive a 3D solid model of the substation to incorporate into their 3D substation designing software.

Darling’s 3D scan and UAV (drone) data provides information that otherwise might be missed. Electrical, mechanical and plumbing engineers as well as civil and structural engineers use this data to avoid clashes when designing around pre-existing assets.

Darling scans new assets as well, to show accurate as-built conditions and compare those to the planned drawings; and red line the differences. Did the contractor place that footer in the right place? Are those bus components at the proper elevation? Our 3D laser scanning and UAV (drone) survey capabilities answer those questions.

Survey from Your Desktop

When we scan your project we capture everything one time. We convert the data into any deliverable you want so you can import it to the tool of your choice. No need to send out a crew to re-measure. You can survey the everything from your desktop.


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.
