Laser Scanning and 3D Modeling

Terrestrial or aerial-based LiDAR technology allows P&D to collect site data quickly and efficiently while producing a comprehensive dataset. From planning to completion, laser scanning provides immeasurable benefits over conventional methods.


  • Faster results with decreased field time
  • Survey grade precision and accuracy
  • Fewer repeat site visits
  • Reduces project cost
  • Answers unanticipated questions
  • Provides a safer environment for data collection

Laser scanners measure 3-dimensional data without physically touching the object. The scan produces millions of measurements to form precise point clouds making it a more accurate way to acquire 3D digital data for mapping, modeling, and topography.

Common uses:

  • As-built surveys or existing conditions surveys
  • Construction verification, sequencing, scheduling, and simulations
  • Engineering for facility upgrades or expansions
  • Facility coordination
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • Evaluating existing electrical substations and gas regulator sites
  • Roadway corridors and intersections
  • Bridge surveys
  • Industrial and Manufacturing sites
  • Architectural documentation or historical preservation
  • Calculating volumes, deformation analysis, and overhead clearances
