MEP 3D Laser Scanning and Modeling


Due to the nature of the work, MEP building projects can be plagued with complexity, misalignments, and confusion. Luckily, 3D laser scanning can remove confusion and guesswork and allow work to progress much more smoothly. The team of experienced surveyors at TrueScanTM uses advanced laser scanning technology to gather incredibly precise and accurate data from even the most complex environments and spaces. 3D laser scanning allows our technicians to reach and measure areas that normally would be inaccessible with traditional surveying methods. We plan and adjust for inaccuracies ahead of time so you don’t have to.

Coupled with the precise 3D laser scans, TrueScan provides design professionals with highly detailed 3D models that allow the viewing of every inch and tight crevice without ever having to enter the space. We understand that MEP projects often involve heavily cramped spaces where fractions of an inch matter. This is why we bring you comprehensive models that show every nook and cranny you need to know about before making any building decisions. No matter the size of your MEP design, TrueScan will give you the tools and data you need to minimize risk and have confidence in every decision.

Benefits of Manufacturing, Electrical, and Plumbing 3D Laser Scanning:

  • Minimize shutdown times.

    Most scans can be performed while the facility is still in operation without affecting your process flow.

  • Capture obstacles you didn’t know you had.

    Laser scanning can quickly capture mechanical, electrical, and plumbing obstacles that aren’t visible with traditional measurement methods.

  • Reduce change orders and keep project schedules.

    MEP laser scanning and as-built modeling for BIM and Revit are much more accurate than traditional methods, so you don’t have to worry about inaccurate information.

  • Safely measure areas difficult or impossible to measure by hand.

    Laser scanning allows you to get measurements without exposing someone to unsafe conditions.

Having a model helped me to visualize a simple revision to the design that ended up saving a full 10 months out of the construction schedule. I am positive that I simply would have not noticed this potential if it weren’t for having the accurate scanned information at my disposal.
