Transforming Concepts into Reality

At BetterPros, we’re your trusted partner in architectural innovation. Our expertise transforms concepts into tangible realities. How? Our professionals provide BIM services (Building Information Modeling), capturing physical structures or buildings using laser scanning technology and converting them into digital BIM models. This revolutionizes structures’ existing approach to efficient renovation, remodeling, and management.

Scan to BIM

Scan to BIM involves the following steps:

Laser Scanning

Using laser scanners to capture millions of data points on the surfaces of an existing building or structure. This technology generates a point cloud, a dense set of 3D data points that accurately represent the physical geometry of the space.

Point Cloud Processing

The collected point cloud data is processed using specialized software to clean, register, and organize the data into a coherent and accurate representation of the scanned area.

Model Generation

BIM professionals create a digital 3D model of the existing structure using BIM software based on the processed point cloud data. This model includes walls, floors, ceilings, structural elements, mechanical systems, and other components.

Parametric Components

In addition to geometry, Scan to BIM models can include parametric information, such as material properties, dimensions, and system details. This information is essential for further analysis and design.

Integration with Existing BIM

The generated Scan to BIM model can be integrated into existing BIM projects, allowing designers, engineers, and architects to incorporate the as-built conditions into their design processes.

Applications and Benefits of Scan to BIM

  • Renovation and Retrofit

Scan to BIM allows designers to work with accurate as-built conditions, helping them design renovations and retrofits that fit seamlessly within existing structures.

  • Clash Detection

By integrating Scan to BIM models with new design models, clashes and conflicts between new and existing elements can be identified and resolved in the virtual environment before construction begins.

  • Facility Management

Accurate BIM models created through Scan to BIM can be used for facility management and maintenance activities, enabling efficient building asset management.

  • Historical Preservation

Scan to BIM can be used to document and preserve historical buildings or structures, creating digital records for future generations.

  • Construction Documentation

Scan-to-BIM models can provide contractors with detailed information about existing conditions, leading to more accurate construction planning and cost estimates.

  • Risk Reduction

Scan to BIM models’ detailed and accurate nature helps reduce errors, rework, and surprises during construction.

  • Visualization

Scan-to-BIM models visually represent existing structures that facilitate communication and understanding among project stakeholders.
