Laser scanning, also known as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), is a powerful technology that uses laser beams to capture a vast amount of data points, creating a highly accurate 3D representation of your building or asset. This digital model, referred to as a point cloud, serves as a virtual replica, capturing every detail of the physical space.

AJ Digital takes this raw point cloud data and refines it, transforming it into a truly valuable tool. We apply real-world coordinates, ensuring perfect alignment with your existing plans to enable seamless integration with other digital platforms used in construction and facility management.

The AJ Digital advantage: How laser scanning optimises your project

Our laser scanning services are designed to empower our clients at every stage of the entire building lifecycle. This is how we deliver this technology:

Base design discrepancy review:

Laser scanning performed during the early stages of each project allows us to identify any potential clashes or deviations from the base design. This proactive approach empowers clients to address these issues before construction begins, preventing costly delays and rework later.

As-Built discrepancy review:

Traditionally, as-built drawings are created after construction is complete. However, these drawings may not always capture every modification made on-site. Laser scanning provides a precise and verifiable record of the building’s “as-built” state. We compare this digital record with the original design and identify any discrepancies. This meticulous review helps clients to finalise accurate as-built documentation, ensuring a smooth handover process and avoiding potential disputes.

The broader benefits of laser scanning

While discrepancy review is a core benefit, laser scanning offers many additional advantages:

  • Improved design and planning: Laser scans provide a detailed and measurable understanding of existing conditions, enabling architects and engineers to create more accurate and efficient designs.
  • Enhanced facility management: A digital twin of each building facilitates efficient space planning, maintenance scheduling and asset tracking.
  • Reduced site visits: Laser scans allow for remote collaboration and decision-making, minimising the need for frequent physical site visits.
  • Improved safety: By providing a clear understanding of existing conditions, laser scanning helps to identify potential safety hazards before construction begins.
