An as-built survey is the perfect solution when you need detailed 3D mapping of a building for renovations or Smart Building applications. Our as-built surveys can save you both time and money as digital data transformation continues to make workflows more efficient.
Imagine spending the time and money in designing state of the art upgrades to your current facility only to find out on construction day that costly changes need to be made because clashes in plumbing, HVAC, and utility lines were not accounted for.
Our as-built survey will create detailed maps and models of every part of your project, allowing your team to have the same measurement data at the same time. Building surveying should be the first step in many remodeling and expansion projects. A building survey can save you time and money, get you detailed plans of an older building, and help get your project off to a great start.
Darling's scans and models are the starting point for as-built surveying and building information modeling (BIM) projects. In general, the savings realized by using 3D laser building surveying 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.
