Cladding and Structural Additions


Contractors installing cladding on structures as per design often encounter discrepancies between the design and the as-made structure. Conventional surveys and 2D drawings supply only partial and unsatisfactory information. 3D laser scanning of the structure, on the other hand, enables the contractor to locate critical deviations, discern deviations from the element’s planeness, accurately record dimensions (up to the millimeter level) of the entire structure envelope, and accurately design corner interfaces, doorframes, cornices, and so on. Shop drawings for execution, quantity calculations, and modeling may be generated from the scan; savings, in both time and money, can be very substantial.
