As-Built Modeling/Project Close-Out
The CAD/CAM Services experts can capture all changes that take place during construction. We'll scan your As-Built drawings and sub-contractor mark-ups and incorporate the information into the BIM to generate As-Built models.
There are several components to this process:
- 3D scanning - to capture anything we can see.
- Hidden object detection.
- The lowest cost approach is by taking photos. The draw-back is that it will require opening a panel through an inside a wall or removing dirt/debris to expose piping.
- Another approach is the use of GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar). While this method eliminates the necessity for opening walls or exposing piping, it can be costly.
- Production of CAD files, which may be:
By building the BIM and linking all design data, cut-sheet data and field changes, the BIM can make project close-out much easier.
Also, by integrating the necessary metadata of the model for future use, we provide you with a BIM model that can be used going forward for FM, cradle to grave building management.
