Architecture & Construction

Effective planning is critically important to architects, construction engineers and contractors in any type of construction project. 3D documentation at every stage, from initial design to final inspection, helps avoid costly rework errors.

Architectural practices, construction engineering companies and building contractors have all adopted FARO’s 3D laser scanners for 3D modeling and as-built documentation. Their projects range from simple house construction to inner city renovation and new office construction. From low to high rise, FARO has the right portable 3D solution for you.

Okumura Sekkei ‘Brings’ Entire Worksites Back as Point Cloud Data

Construction and Civil Engineering: Okumura Sekkei Corporation
“Construction consultants fail in their jobs when they design with no knowledge of the site’s current state,” shared Mr Okumura. “To get around this problem, we obtain scans of the entire site, including its surrounding areas, using a 3D laser scanner. With the point cloud data collected, we can then check the current status of the site in detail as we work on our designs in the office.”

MAC and Nishimatsu Construction Develop Vehicle-Mounted Scanning System with FARO Focus3D

Construction/Civil Engineering/Tunnel Drilling: MAC Co. Ltd.
Drilling precision requires us to secure the design field and suppress surplus drilling (also known as ‘over-digging’) within 50mm. With precision construction control, we can reduce material costs, labor costs, and project duration, as well as improve productivity levels.

Expanding Capabilities with the FARO Laser Scanner

AEC – Construction: AMNEX
Amnex had 2 key requirements when searching for a suitable 3D scanning solution. First, the scanner had to cover a distance range of up to 330 meters. At the same time, data quality was a non-negotiable factor.

Greater BIM Applicability with FARO’s 3D Scanning Technology

Survey and Design: SIPPR Engineering Group Co., Ltd.
Within two short years, SIPPR has deployed FARO’s laser scanners extensively in all phases of its 13 industrial and commercial projects. These include earthwork volume calculation, reverse modeling of factories, testing completed buildings, facade engineering, and calculation of construction materials.
