How we collect field data

We leverage the latest reality capture tools

Advanced Field Data Collection with Reality Capture Tools

At Existing Conditions, we are at the forefront of field data collection, harnessing the power of cutting-edge reality capture tools to redefine how we create digital footprints of physical structures. Our primary method for data capture is construction-grade 3D laser scanning, a technology that revolutionizes the way we gather information from sites. Here's a closer look at how this process works.

High-Speed Laser Scanning

Our field data collection process is powered by small and lightweight laser scanning equipment. In less than two minutes, this state-of-the-art technology can capture an astonishing two million points per second. This rapid data acquisition enables us to gather real-time measurements and a wealth of information directly from the site.

Point Cloud Data

Construction-grade 3D laser scanning automatically generates point cloud data in the field. This rich dataset serves a multitude of purposes, providing architects, designers, and builders with a comprehensive and highly accurate representation of the physical structure.

Diverse Hardware Solutions

To ensure that we meet the unique needs of each project, we utilize a full spectrum of laser scanning equipment sourced from reputable companies such as Leica Geosystems and FARO 3D. Depending on the project's specific requirements, we deploy the hardware that is best suited to the task at hand. Our commitment to using the most advanced and appropriate equipment underscores our dedication to delivering precise and reliable field data.
