3D Laser Scanning for As-Built Surveys
3D laser scanners are used by many industries in different ways. As an As-Built Survey provider, we use special 3D laser scanners to capture millions of data points which render into a point cloud. The resulting point cloud is a digital twin of your building and is used as a map for drafting by our Production team. Sectioning through the point cloud allows our drafters and modelers to create the most accurate As-Built plans. And, it’s a great resource for our quality assurance team.
3D Laser Scanning Benefits for Homeowners
- 3D laser scanning allows us to move through your home more quickly.
- It provides a digital twin which helps us ensure the most accurate deliverables.
- Accuracy helps avoid budget overages and extensions to your timeline.
Residential As-Built Drawings
PPM offers the following As-Built architectural drawings for residential properties. Your specific needs for your remodel project will likely depend on the work you are planning to do to the home. Your architect, contractor, or other professional consultant should be able to help you determine the As-Built plans you will need to get started. When working with PPM, you may choose the individual drawings that you need, or choose from one of our popular Service Packages which contain common bundles of plans at a volume discount.

3D As-Built BIM Models have become quite popular with our architecture clients.

View the residence from any angle and section the model to focus on specific areas. Conveniently export to 2D drawings.
PPM offers Revit and ArchiCAD BIM deliverables to fit your preference.
