3D Laser Scanning (LiDAR)Services

3D laser scanning via LiDAR technology allows AAB to document the existing conditions of any project, regardless of complexity with millimeter precision. By strategically moving our scanners throughout a jobsite and collecting millions of individual data points, we can render a precise 3D point cloud of any space. Our custom scanning solutions even allow us to survey areas that many won’t consider, such as crawlspaces, attics, interstitial spaces, and subsurface areas. Simply put, if our equipment can see it, we can most certainly measure it.

Point Clouds

The product of raw scan data meticulously stitched together by an AAB surveyor, checked against our accuracy standards, then exported to the format of your choice.

Leica TruView

Standard with all AAB site visits, Leica TruView is a customer friendly photorealistic point cloud viewer that enables our clients to easily measure, markup, and share any point cloud with no prior experience required.

Subsurface LiDAR Inspections

Coming Soon!

Do you have subsurface areas in need of inspection? Traditional inspections result in limited measurements with many areas being inaccessible altogether. We can provide the full picture far more quickly and safely with our custom LiDAR scanning solutions. Shafts, manholes, catch basins, confined spaces, and storage tanks may all be remotely inspected in 3D with incredible accuracy.

Leica TruView

Included with any 2D CAD Drawings are your choice of photo documentation in the form of either standard digital photos or a virtual tour via Leica TruView. This point cloud viewing software is hosted by us and shared via a simple hyperlink allowing you to remotely view (or measure!) anything that we surveyed at a moment’s notice. Just a few features and benefits include:

Example of Leica TruView virtual tour as provided by Apex As-Builts
  • An intuitive easy to use interface with no CAD or 3D skills required
  • Virtual, photo-realistic visits to project sites from anywhere, anytime
  • Remotely inspect difficult to access areas like crawlspaces or attics
  • No plug-in required, accessible from any browser on any device
  • Easily view, pan, zoom, measure and add markups
  • Everyone involved with your project can access this important, dimensionally correct, photorealistic digital reality data. Share the link with whomever may need it and spend less time visiting jobsites!
