what we do

3D Scanning & Modeling

Using technology for accuracy and efficiency

3D laser scanning and high definition surveying allows Parametrix to provide our clients with the highest level of precision in the shortest amount of time. With this technology, we can safely and efficiently complete surveys in locations where accessibility is difficult or unsafe, such as busy highways. Where no as-built drawings exist, we can rapidly collect highly accurate true to scale as-built data. This data can be transferred to CADD or Revit for use in project design or modeled for building information modeling (BIM) applications.

Client: University of Washington
Partner: Skanska USA Building Inc.

Parametrix performed laser scanning and 3D modeling of the six-story Husky Union Building undergoing a comprehensive renovation. The resulting BIM model was created by Skanska to integrate design changes and add visual information to the construction plans. Numerous rooms, hallways, stairways, and structural support features were accurately scanned and augmented with conventional measurements. Work was completed at night to avoid interfering with construction. This process ensured the structural configuration was accurate and reduced the risk of inaccurate construction materials being purchase.
