BIM, Building Information Modeling, is an essential component of today's fast tracked construction environment. The successful integration of computer models into project coordination, simulation, and value engineering requires information (the "I" in BIM) to generate valid feedback.

The real-time, precision data obtained from our laser scans is an essential ingredient in BIM. It can serve as a reliable basis for decision making and reduce the need for re-gathering field information.

The precise nature of the data makes it invaluable for resolving disputes and insuring that plans are accurately executed. The raw point cloud data obtained from our laser scans can be surfaced to generate a CAD model, 2D or 3D, that brings real time as-built information into construction documents. Problems regarding coordination, construction clashes, and structural alignments are discovered and easily resolved before fieldwork begins.

Corinthian Data Capture has successfully used this technology and is now dedicated to introducing its accuracy, time and cost saving abilities to their clients.
