It’s very important that Insurers and Underwriters document as-is condition following an accident of disaster.

Laser Scanning is able to capture the real world environment accurately, efficiently and in high detail enabling safe and rapid data collection as evidence of scope of damage, before demolition begins.

In addition the same data is used by engineering to aid in as-is conditions for the rebuild design and construction planning phases.

  • 1. [email_address] www.Texas-Surveys.com Laser Scanning For Insurance Documentation And Rebuild Engineering Simon Atkinson 281.701.2292 Feb 2010 Texas Surveys
  • 2. It’s very important that Insurers and Underwriters document as-is condition following an accident of disaster. Laser Scanning is able to capture the real world environment accurately, efficiently and in high detail enabling safe and rapid data collection as evidence of scope of damage, before demolition begins. In addition the same data is used by engineering to aid in as-is conditions for the rebuild design and construction planning phases. Increasing first time fit and minimizing rework.
  • 3. Multiple scans were taken of the damaged area and registered together. The screenshot below shows the Scan Cloud in LFM Server which can be directly imported to all the main 3D design engineering formats: PDS SmartPlant, PDMS, Autocad, CADWorx, …etc Imager 5006 Laser scanner Fire Damaged Building
  • 4. The source of the explosion was scanned with the surrounding structure to document the condition of the plant before demolition. Scan data can be isolated and highlighted to precisely locate specific information.
  • 5. The scan data is registered to plant coordinates so that any element can be precisely located. Below is the fractured weld and the crater created by the explosion. This data is 1:1 scale and can be fully dimensioned from any point to point. SECTION PLAN
  • 6. A 3D Perspective Screenshot Of The Fractured Weld
  • 7. The South Elevation of the Burnt Out Cooling Tower
  • 8. Perspective View Of The Burnt Out Cooling Tower
  • 9. Designers can identify and locate existing tie points as they plan the rebuild. Underwriters can document as-is conditions before demolition destroys critical evidence.
  • 10. In high resolution, the scan data is able to capture cracks and deformities as a record of the actual condition of equipment and machinery as a result of an incident.
  • 11. Undamaged areas can also be scanned where tie points are required for reconnection as part of the rebuild / upgrade.
  • 12. As-built or As-is Modeling From The Point Cloud Data, 3D As-Built Models Can Be Created, And Converted To PDS, SmartPlant Review, AutoCAD, PDMS, …Etc
  • 13. Fully Detailed And Accurate As-Built / As-Is Model Generated From Laser Scan Data Only.
  • 14. Direct Import Of Point Cloud Data Points imported directly into the design software: SmartPlant 3D / Review, PDMS, PDS, Microstation, AutoCAD, CADWorx, NX, Catia v5, …etc. Identifying:
    • Tie-In Locations
    • Routing Options
    • Clash Detection
    • Equipment Identification
  • 15. Clash Detection / Design Validation Review New Design Against The Real World Environment. Interference / Clash Detection Tracking And Reporting.
  • 16. SAFETY
  • 17. Safely And Quickly Capture Data In Dangerous Environments.
  • 18. Accurately Dimension Directly From The 3D Scan Data. Distances, Center Lines, Diameters, Elevations, …Etc Navigate Through The Plant From The Safety Of Your Desk
  • 19. Increased Safety For All Reduced Safety Exposure Hours Faster / More Accurate Data Collection Better Design & Planning
