The majority of Buildings in South Africa and the world over are older than 20 years with few of them having the original or updated floorplans available. Architects and engineers find it challenging and time-consuming with the high possibility of rework to capture accurate measurements of existing buildings.
The creation of as-built Building Information Models requires the measurements of the as-is state of existing buildings. The initial conventional means of deriving these as-built measurements (the majority of the time done using a tape measure) is tedious, manual, and not ideal.
This Scan to BIM workflow guide will show the way to incorporate technology in a manner to highly automate this process and produce a 3D intelligent deliverable.
