With the addition of laser scanners to our field surveying methods, WLG is able to accurately collect a tremendous volume of detailed survey data. Providing significant cost reduction to our clients by increasing the productivity of field crews and expediting the work-schedule by reducing the need for encroachment permits and minimizing physical footprint into potentially hazardous conditions.
Especially effective in topographic survey and mapping applications; transportation corridors, tunnels, and bridges; complex pipe networks; as well as electric substations and transmission structures and intricate and detailed architectural structures, all of which previously have proven a daunting task to survey, are now easily scanned and translated into a 3D CAD environment.
3D laser scanning is becoming an integral part of almost every topographic survey project, reducing costs and providing significantly superior quantity and quality of topographic survey data; office technicians are often able to find detailed information in the scan point cloud that otherwise might have required additional field survey.
WLG performed laser scanning through four acres of the Mitsubishi Cement facility in order to obtain as-built information of their existing facilities and to help facilitate construction for improvements to their existing facilities. WLG also facilitated scanning of the inside of the pre-heater tower for their 30-foot diameter pipe that preheats materials for combustion. WLG provided a point cloud of 30+ scans and 3D modeling of the existing structural beams in order to facilitate the design of a new catwalk near their kiln sampling access hatch inside the preheater tower. The scan data was delivered to the engineers in .E57 format and the structural components were delivered in Autodesk Revit format.
