VNHA’s High-Definition Surveying (HDS) Services utilize 3D Laser Scanning to bring the latest in geospatial data collection technology and software to our clients. This technology can collect more data with greater detail than conventional surveying methods and in much less time.
This collection of points is known as a Point Cloud. Data can then be extracted from the point cloud to provide highly accurate and geo-referenced drawings/models of the existing site conditions utilizing a variety of software dependent on the project requirements. Through this form of data collection, we can obtain the data remotely (enhancing safety, eliminating the need to send a survey technician in for locations), and to do so at a speed that reduces the need for traffic or rail interference or operational shutdowns. An additional benefit includes the large amounts of data collected which could ultimately prove useful for future client needs.
VNHA has used and provided our laser scan data for clash detections on numerous projects. We pride ourselves in our ability to implement core surveying principals in our data acquisition and processing techniques which gives us the ability and confidence to accurately align the resulting data to the established coordination models or previously obtained existing conditions allowing for thorough clash analysis and reporting. Models created from either existing condition laser scan data or proposed information can be formatted and exported to a file type that is supported by various software platforms as well as various types of equipment, including manufacturing.
The use of High-Definition Laser Scanning helps us assist our clients in minimizing potential site design conflicts fulfilling our objective to give our clients the most reliable information and ultimately allowing their projects to run smoothly and efficiently.
“Nick Fetzer and his team from Van Note-Harvey did an outstanding and very professional job. I was truly impressed with their professionalism and their expertise regarding laser scanning. We all should look forward to working with them on this project and future projects.” ~ Victor Pronesti, Project Manager, Wick Fisher White
