Constructed laser scanning
Laser scanning is a method of collecting surface data using a laser scanner which captures the precise distance of densely-scanned points over a given object at rapid speed. The process is commonly referred to as a point cloud survey or as light detection and ranging (LIDAR, a combination of the words ‘light’ and ‘radar’).
What is BIM?
BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling. It describes the process of designing a building collaboratively using one coherent system of computer models rather than as separate sets of drawings which led to breakdown of information sharing as well as errors.
