Using 3D Scanning for Existing Conditions

3D scanning services for existing conditions can boost your business’s productivity, quality, and short-term and long-term goals.

Issues 3D Scanning Addresses for Existing Conditions

3D scanning can help you address the following concerns:


The accuracy of the data points greatly reduces any mistakes in the drawings; the scan is a perfect 3D as-built of the existing condition.

Cost Savings

Are credited to the reduced time needed in the design and planning stages.


3D scanning can obtain measurements in hard to reach (i.e., above ceilings) or from a distance keeping workers out of harm’s way. Scanning is done with boots on the ground without the need for ladders or lifts.

Site Revisits

Point cloud data from the scan captures all dimensional information of the existing conditions. There is no need to revisit the site to get missed measurements. It saves significant time and cost.

Benefits of 3D Scanning Services

Using 3D scanning allows you to develop accurate 3D models for existing conditions that provide you details regarding the equipment needed in different stages.

Reduce Costs

It can reduce cost and change orders. Incorporating a laser scan into the design of your project assures accurate and complete information, avoiding the cost of equipment rental, manual measurement, clashes, change orders, not to mention project delays and headaches.

Improve Coordination

It allows smooth remote meetings and document coordination. These days, remote meetings are crucial, but they only work if everyone is looking at the same information.

Verify Existing Conditions

It can verify the architecture of floors, walls, buildings & more – this terrestrial or mobile LiDAR technology is great for the AE and MEPF applications.


The process further reduces the time constraints, taking one person merely days to complete a task that would take a team of staff many days or weeks using traditional methods.

Improve Communication

It helps eliminate the misinterpretations and miscommunications commonly faced in traditional methods.

Facility Maintenance

It creates complete documentation and records of the existing conditions for current and future use.

Clash Detection

3D scanned models help verify and test the design concepts while also taking the existing conditions into account.


It gives you the most accurate measurements as compared to other traditional techniques. The 3D scanning includes all building elements, including fittings, external landscapes, internal walls, ceilings, columns, and beams.


It provides your team with increased safety in all kinds of locations.
