In the fast-paced world of architecture, engineering, and construction, accurate as-built drawings are essential for the success of any project. They provide a comprehensive record of existing conditions, enabling efficient design, planning, and execution of construction projects.
Our practice has now invested in the Leica BLK2GO—an innovative mobile 3D laser scanner that has revolutionised the way we capture accurate point cloud data for producing as-built drawings across London and the South East.
The Leica BLK2GO is a cutting-edge handheld laser scanner that combines simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) technology with 3D imaging capabilities. It is lightweight, portable, and incredibly versatile, making it the perfect tool for capturing accurate measurements and creating detailed point cloud data on the go. With its ease of use and exceptional performance, the BLK2GO has quickly become a game-changer for professionals involved in the construction industry.
One of the key strengths of the Leica BLK2GO is its ability to capture precise point cloud data. The device utilises a combination of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and SLAM technologies to rapidly scan and map its surroundings in 3D. This process involves emitting laser pulses that bounce back from the environment, allowing the scanner to measure distances and create a detailed representation of the scanned area.
By effortlessly capturing millions of data points per second, the BLK2GO generates highly accurate point cloud data, providing a comprehensive digital representation of existing conditions. This data serves as the foundation for creating as-built drawings with exceptional precision, ensuring that new design elements seamlessly integrate with the existing environment.
While point cloud data is invaluable, it needs to be converted into usable existing drawings for successful project execution. Our practice can use the point cloud data to produce accurate floor plans or elevations suitable for the project.
The use of Leica BLK2GO for as-built drawings has numerous advantages for projects throughout London and the South East. Here are some of the key benefits:
