ISG Transforms 3D Model Delivery to Boost BIM Capabilities

Global construction services company ISG is using the latest 3D modelling technology to stimulate its building information modelling (BIM) capabilities. By introducing Pointfuse laser scanning software, ISG has speeded up workflows with rapid scan-to-BIM modelling whilst maintaining high levels of accuracy. Traditionally this laser data processing could take up to three days to 3D model a single floor. However, using Pointfuse, ISG has reduced this to a matter of hours. The use of Pointfuse has also increased the range of the point cloud outputs with applications including clash detection and visualization. “Scan-to-BIM modelling was previously seen as undesirable by the...

How Will the Surveyor’s Role Look in 10 Years’ Time?

Over the next ten years, the surveyor’s workflow will become quicker, safer and easier because of new technologies like scanning, mobile mapping and UAS photogrammetry. Virtual layout, aided by the increasing use of augmented reality technologies, will require fewer physical stakes in the ground. Due to the transformation of the physical world into a digital one, digital twins will take centre stage, with surveyors called upon to convey meaningful information from the model back to the physical world. Demand will increase for surveyors’ expertise in time-based analysis of changing site conditions, such as monitoring installations for volume-changing and deformation analysis.... (read more)
