BIM Support

BIM / Revit Support

As demand for BIM-compliant projects increases, so does the pressure on surveying firms to deliver. Our BIM team supports other firms, either complementing their existing teams or becoming their BIM department altogether.

Using high powered workstations and the very latest data manipulation software, we digitise and model point clouds according to your project’s specification. We can work with existing point clouds or, by employing our own internal HDS specialists, can capture high quality data using our fleet of 3D laser scanning instruments. Unlike more traditional methods of surveying, by using laser scanning technology, we collect vast quantities of data in a short time frame. In doing so, we reduce the time and costs associated with fieldwork and eliminate the need for costly revisits.

Once the point cloud lands, experienced team of modelling specialists export that data into some of our cutting edge BIM software, processing that data to produce incredibly detailed three-dimensional models of your structures or assets. What’s more, thanks to the amount of data available and the flexibility of our software, we can also extract more traditional deliverables such as elevations, floor plans and sections with relative ease.

BIM Software

  • Trimble RealWorks
  • Trimble Business Centre
  • Revit
  • N4CE
  • AutoCAD
  • Descartes

We work for a broad array of clients throughout the railway, civils and construction industries, supplementing their existing BIM resource wherever necessary. Indeed, our point cloud modelling (or Scan to BIM) services are perfect for any organisation requiring a 3D model for deign or verification purposes.

Typical projects that could benefit from Scan to BIM include…

  • Railway and civil engineering
  • Refurbishment and renovation
  • Demolition
  • Facilities upgrades or maintenance (including M&E, HVAC, lift installation etc.)
  • Heritage
  • Master plan and visual impact assessments
