3D Reality Scanners on Trial: GRAHAM puts them to the test
GRAHAM is the first contractor in the UK to test the world’s smallest 3D laser scanner as part of a pioneering trial to find new innovative technology to support the delivery of BIM on construction sites.
Industry magazine BIM+ contacted the GRAHAM BIM team
to get our honest expert opinion of a variety of
laser scanning tools.
Using their considerable digital construction expertise, our dedicated BIM support
team reviewed three leading scanners that are currently revolutionising the
world of measurement to discover which is
best suited for different construction tasks.
The BIM team tested the three Leica-manufactured innovative products on the GRAHAM refurbishment project
at Coupland Building at the University of Manchester.
The three products tested were:
- Leica BLK360 - described
as the world’s smallest 3D laser scanner
- ScanStation P40 - used
more commonly on construction sites
- Leica Pegasus - designed
to scan as a user walks around a project
