3D Laser Scanning

At Powers, we provide 3D laser scanning services and point cloud data sets using industry leading Leica Cyclone and Cloudworx software. With data captured at one million points a second and comprehensive raw point cloud data, this equates to no site returns.

Whether you want to capture the 3D geometry of civil infrastructure, create an as-built representation of a large and complex building (inside or out), reconstruct a crime scene, create a heritage survey or generate 3D data for integration into Building Information Modelling (BIM), a scanned survey is the right choice to deliver millions of detailed and accurate geo-referenced points.

Key Benefits

  • Our laser scanners pick up millions of geo-referenced points with millimetre accuracy, giving a precise and detailed picture of what is there
  • Comprehensive raw point cloud data equates to no site returns and data available for use at the touch of a button
  • The laser scanner can cover vast swathes of land or buildings quickly, reducing the amount of time required on site, the total project duration and the cost to you
  • With the capability to capture difficult to reach areas remotely, health and safety risks are reduced
  • 3D laser scanning can assist with on-site logistics and allow designers to gain valuable data, such as adjacent building heights or obtain vital dimensions for planning purposes, before a project starts
  • The 3D model drawings can be integrated into BIM software such as Revit and AutoCAD Civil 3D


  • 3D Building Modelling Surveys (external elevations, internal layouts and building sections)
  • 3D models for integration into BIM software
  • Heritage Surveys
  • Conservation Surveys
  • Structure Monitoring
  • Volumetric Surveys
  • Event Planning

The work Powers carried out at Lancaster Canal Quarter has enabled us to develop a consistent brief for future developers to work to, which will ensure that the character of the site remains intact.
