How 3D laser scanning can help you stay on budget

Here are various ways that hull engineering and architecture experts can benefit from 3D scanning in terms of cost reduction.

For a construction project to be considered successful, one of the essential boxes you need to tick is staying on budget. Since erecting or renovating a structure involves many expenses – from building materials to salaries and professional fees – it can be quite difficult to do so. With modern technologies such as 3D Hull Laser Scanning, you can complete construction projects more accurately while reducing costs.

The 3D scanning process

Traditionally, professionals involved in construction projects (e.g. engineers, hull architecture experts) have to spend a lot of time on site to take manual measurements using various devices. With 3D scanning, you simply place an instrument equipped with such technology to collect measurements of individual points.

The data collected by this instrument can be automatically uploaded to cloud storage. With modeling software, you can use this data set to create accurate 3D images and maps as well as building designs that take into account any existing structure on site.

Here are various ways that hull engineering and architecture experts can benefit from 3D scanning in terms of cost reduction.

This can help eliminate design and construction errors. Having accurate designs in the first place can help minimize your chances of making mistakes in the remaining phases of construction. Inadequate documentation, a problem that 3D scanning successfully solves, can help you create error-free designs.

This can foster effective collaboration. Your initial design is not necessarily the final one. Even during the construction of the structure, there may be changes in the design. The 3D models produced by this technology are easily accessible by the staff(s) and stakeholder(s) concerned. This much more efficient collaboration can help you modify your design, ensure changes are applied, and the build process is always on schedule.

This can minimize accidents. Safety is a primary concern in any construction project. By using 3D scanning technology, you already reduce the risk of accidents while taking manual measurements of hard-to-reach areas. During the actual construction, injuries and accidents can also be avoided if you have an accurate 3D image of the site (for example, you will know the precise location of a dangerous slope).

This can reduce your construction waste. This historic scanning technology can also ensure more efficient use of materials. By having an accurate design and a better collaborative platform, everyone involved can come to a better decision on which building material to use. By avoiding design and construction errors due to incorrect documentation data, you can also avoid incurring unnecessary expenses on supplies.

It can provide legal protection. Unsafely constructed structures can be costly and damage reputation. With 3D laser scanning, you can create structurally sound structures. Additionally, the record created by this technology can be used as a basis against legal and insurance claims that the structure was completed incorrectly.
