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.

UW ​Tacoma Joy Building
​​​​Tacoma, Washington
Client: ​University of Washington

This 1940’s 3-story, 65,000-square-foot brick and wood building was being converted for use as a student center, requiring structural upgrades. Parametrix provided 3D modeling to provide the exact location of all structural components of the building and 360-degree high resolution panoramic images of each floor and exterior architectural details. A boundary survey of the structure was also completed.
