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.

LOTT Wastewater Treatment Plan Utilidor Tunnel
​​​Olympia, Washington
Client: ​LOTT

A new waste activated sludge line was designed by Parametrix to replace an existing leaking line at LOTT’s wastewater treatment plant. In support of this effort, our surveyors completed a 3D laser scan of two pump stations and 500 feet of underground utility corridor. Subsequent to the scans, we generated a 3D model of the existing conditions, which were used by the design team to create the final design and deliverable. Conventional surveying was also used to map topographic and planimetric features within a 500-foot roadway, connecting several of the site facilities.
