Precision and Accuracy:
3D Building Scanning Solutions
PMC is a leading provider of building scanning services, utilizing state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology. We capture highly accurate digital representations of buildings and structures using laser scanners, drones, and photogrammetry techniques. Our expertise extends to various applications, including architectural design, renovation planning, facility management, and historical preservation.
Our AIA award-winning methodologies integrate multi-mode scan data into a single point cloud, enabling as-built conditions and virtual job sites. Experience the efficiency and precision of 3D laser scanning, eliminating the inaccuracies and inefficiencies of traditional field verification methods.
Our Building Scanning Capabilities
A study published in the Mediterranean Journal of Social Sciences revealed that approximately 30% of construction work involves rework.
Contractors can achieve significant cost savings by implementing laser scanning as part of a comprehensive VDC strategy to mitigate rework.
Point Cloud Data Analysis
The captured point cloud data can be analyzed to extract valuable insights, such as volumetric calculations, area measurements, and material quantities for accurate project estimation and cost control.
3D scanning data can be integrated with BIM software, enhancing the BIM workflow and supporting clash detection, coordination, and accurate modeling.
Our building scanning skills allow for easy verification of as-built conditions against original designs, ensuring accuracy during construction or renovation projects.
Clash detection between existing structures and proposed designs is used to identify and resolve potential conflicts before construction begins.
Visualization and Virtual Tours
PMC can provide immersive visualizations and virtual tours of buildings, allowing stakeholders to explore and understand the space remotely and make informed decisions.
Collected data can be used for structural analysis, assessing load-bearing capacities, and identifying potential structural vulnerabilities.
Energy Efficiency Analysis
Scanned data can be utilized for energy efficiency analysis to optimize energy consumption in buildings.
