Building Information Modelling (BIM) is popular and often required as a method for construction professionals to manage new and existing buildings and infrastructure. 3D scanning assists this effort by gathering large amounts of 3D data quickly, allowing measurement and visualisation of present and predicted or planned work. Scanning in color, as well as panoramic photography, is also available. 3D Engineers’ work also includes the scanning of core rails of large sweep staircases, pipe recording, fireplaces, recording of potentially unsafe structures for monitoring purposes (regular monitoring can be arranged) and much more. The equipment used is portable and in some cases it does not require an external power source. Remote and large sites can also be accommodated. 3D scanning additionally assists room and kitchen design, for example, as the empty space that needs to be populated by fitted kitchen, bedroom or living room furniture can be recorded and the furniture designed around a more accurate representation of the design space than was available before.
