For Architecture Engineering and Construction we can provide a number of services which assist workflow and visualisation throughout a project lifecycle.

Streamline documentation, 3D scan as-builts, and collaborate remotely with ease from anywhere.  ‘Engage with stakeholders virtually with the same richness of experience as an in-person site visit’

Key Benefits

OJW Creative Services can provide a number of services which assist workflow and visualisation throughout a project lifecycle.

  • Streamline documentation, collaborate remotely with ease from anywhere 3D produce scan as-builts.
  • Increase efficiency with a fast, affordable capture service.
  • Engage with stakeholders virtually with the same richness of experience as an in-person site visit.

We can capture 2D photography and 3D data from job sites, automatically stitching them into a complete, immersive 3D model of a real-world job site.

Take this 3D model and annotate, share, and export the point cloud to Autodesk ReCap® or Revit®.

NO REGISTRATION MARKERS REQUIRED

Our 3D scanning process is push-button simple. No registration markers and no manual alignment required. Everything is automatic!

ACCURATE WITHIN 1%*

Scanning is not only quick but also accurate enough to generate point clouds and polygons for as-builts and construction documentation.

QUICKLY SCAN CURRENT CONDITIONS

3D scanning as-builts has never been easier. No need to set up registration markers before you scan, and your point clouds are automatically registered in the cloud for one less step. 

BE EFFICIENT, MEASURE WHILE OFFSITE

No need for return site visits when you have a complete 3D model on your computer. Your as-built engineers can reference the complete space throughout the design process, collecting virtual measurements whenever they need to. As built documentation has never been easier.

EXPORT POINT CLOUDS INTO AUTODESK® RECAP

You can easily export a registered, colored point cloud that is ready for Autodesk® ReCap. Use a point cloud as a real-world template to kickstart your as-built design process.

REDUCE VIRTUAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION COSTS

Make the scan the first step in your BIM process. Use it to to visually analyse a property, export the registered point cloud into your BIM modelling software, and start modelling from existing conditions.

 

WIN MORE BIDS WITH BETTER DOCUMENTATION

Building owners want the construction of their buildings to be well documented. Provide them with superior construction documentation throughout the process. When you’re done, give them the files they need for long-term facilities management.

Keep your documentation costs low while still offering accurate, high-quality information. 

 

GET THE POINT CLOUD AND MAKE MEASUREMENTS

Get the point cloud from Matterport, import into Recap or Revit, and then take as many measurements as you want. Measurements are accurate to within 1% of reality.

With a point cloud, you can eliminate return visits because you always have a digital copy from which you can measure. You can also take measurements that are difficult to get in real life like pipes, trusses, and beams in the ceiling.

3D CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION WITHOUT THE HEADACHE

With only a few simple scans, we can give you quick and effective milestone documentation. With both 2D photography and 3D data, it’s the best way to track key milestones and discover issues early.

A single scanned space can replace thousands of traditional 2D photos. With the immersive 360º walkthrough, documentation is both engaging and enjoyable. You can even zoom in and read detailed labels.

For when you absolutely need 2D photos, they’re easy to download from the scan. You can also get reflected ceiling plan images and high resolution floorplan images for even richer documentation.



Get stakeholders on the same page and give them the detail they need. Tag complicated areas with more information, such as MEP details beneath drywall. Highlight what’s most important with a Guided Tour.

Get the point cloud that accurately details current conditions and then export to Revit to compare with the original design.



Finally, turn over your documentation to the building owner for long-term facilities management. The owner will be pleased to have this easy-to-use treasure trove of information for future maintenance and renovations.

3 EASY STEPS

01 | SCAN THE JOB SITE

Scanning 5,000 square feet (464 square meters) typically takes under an hour. No leveling, registration markers, or manual alignment required.

02 | Upload site data

With one click, upload your data to the cloud.

03 | Annotate, share, measure
It’s easy to tag locations with more info and even create a visual punchlist. Then share a link and stakeholders can explore the 3D Space right from their web browser. Finally, export assets (point cloud, reflected ceiling and floor plan images, 3D mesh file, 2D photos, and more) and continue working in other software that you already use.

Construction Drone

Drone Aerial photography is already revolutionising the way construction projects can be documented — drone aerial video footage can add impact to your online marketing material.

Drones make the production of weekly progress maps far quicker, easier and less costly than traditional ways. They also facilitate greater and easier information exchanges between construction companies and their clients, boosting overall efficiency and communication.

Any areas considered too risky for sending in personnel, such as dangerous structures, areas where hazardous materials are leaking or where there’s risk of fire from flammable materials, mean using a drone presents a safer option as the drone operator can remain at a safe distance.

Drones can produce impressive aerial views and give clients a grasp of the project’s progression, especially when they cannot be physically present on a site. This helps assure clients that their spend is being utilized efficiently.
