TUSTIN, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 15, 2024 / -- Architectural Resource Consultants (ARC) continues to advance the application of 3D laser scanning technology in the engineering and architecture industries. By 3D laser scanning buildings and other structures to meticulously capture super-precise details, ARC effectively supports the creation of Building Information Modeling (BIM), facilitating enhanced accuracy and efficiency in project planning and execution.

ARC has long recognized the potential of 3D laser scanning to transform building documentation dramatically. This technology allows for the precise capture of a building’s dimensions and structural details, which can then be translated into detailed BIM models. These models are crucial for architects, engineers, and construction professionals who rely on accurate data for planning and executing projects efficiently.

Over the years, ARC has expanded its technological arsenal to include various types of laser scanners, each suited to different project needs. SLAM technology, for instance, is used for its rapid data collection capabilities, ideal for extensive sites where quick mobility is essential. For projects requiring utmost precision, ARC turns to terrestrial laser scanners, which, although slower, provide extremely high accuracy necessary for detailed analysis.

The use of drones equipped with LiDAR and photogrammetry has also been integrated into ARC’s services, offering a bird’s-eye view of project sites. This is particularly useful for capturing topographic data and monitoring construction progress comprehensively.

"By integrating the latest in 3D laser scan to BIM technology, we not only enhance our modeling capabilities but also offer our clients the most reliable and actionable data available," stated ARC’s CAD/BIM Manager, Jorge Vargas. "This precision is crucial for the complex projects our clients entrust us with."

ARC’s continuous improvement and adoption of cutting-edge technologies reflect its dedication to pushing the boundaries of what 3D laser scanning can achieve. Each technological update and innovation brought into their workflow represents a step forward in the evolution of laser scanning applications in building and construction.

The integration of these diverse scanning technologies improves the accuracy and efficiency of building documentation and enhances the safety and scalability of architectural projects. Clients benefit from quicker project timelines, reduced costs due to fewer errors, and the confidence that comes from having detailed, accurate models from the outset.

ARC’s leadership in exploring and adopting new laser scanning technologies ensures its clients are always equipped with the latest advancements in 3D modeling.
