WITH A REPUTATION FOR ACCURACY, QUALITY AND CLIENT SERVICE, AHR GEOMATICS PROVIDES INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS FOR OUR CLIENTS' SPATIAL REQUIREMENTS. AHR GEOMATICS IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF DEVELOPMENTS IN THE FIELD OF LASER SCANNING AND REALITY CAPTURE. WE HAVE UNDERTAKEN PATHFINDER PROJECTS FOR THE UK GOVERNMENT BIM INITIATIVE AND ARE CONSTANTLY EXPLORING NEW POSSIBILITIES IN THIS AREA TO BRING BENEFIT TO OUR CLIENTS.
Scan to BIM
For existing buildings, AHR uses digital surveying techniques to create a 3D point cloud model which is then used as the basis for a BIM model. Laser scanners are used to create a point cloud model together with complete visualisations. Information is gathered over a greatly reduced time period without a reduction in quality or accuracy of information. The point cloud, comprising of millions of spatially correct points, can be used as the basis of a 3D model available in the client’s choice of formats. We offer our clients a number of options in this area from data collection through to fully developed BIM models.
Measured Building Surveys
An AHR measured building survey is an essential tool in the refurbishment, alteration or redevelopment of any property. It allows for the accurate calculation of net lettable floor areas to maximise rental returns. Should the building be of any particular historic interest then a quality survey will act as a record to preserve the building for future generations. Survey data collected allows the creation of an accurate 2D or 3D model of the existing spatial and constructional arrangements. The details may also include sections and elevation information, together with dimensional analysis of fixtures, fittings, services and plant etc.
An understanding of the surroundings is vital to the smooth construction of any new structure. An AHR topographical survey provides just that: a complete picture of your surroundings. It will encompass all survey detail that is relevant to your needs and can include 3D digital terrain models of the entire site incorporating any specified level of detail. This can range from individual utility locations to main site and building orientations and boundaries to major highways and ecological systems.
Utility Mapping Surveys
AHR Geomatics can also offer underground utility mapping surveys. Continual investment in the latest Ground Penetrating Radar technologies and the highest levels of training ensures that the best possible results are always achieved. The advantage of using a GPR unit over traditional methods is its ability to locate and trace non-metallic materials such as the plastics used in gas and water utility pipes.
