Design & Construction

Providing Solutions Tailored to Your Needs
Renovations • Restorations • New Construction • Design Build • Construction Progress

3D Laser Scanning can easily measure difficult dimensions in the field.  Whether obtaining accurate information prior to renovation or field measuring unique features of new construction, laser scanning makes it simple. It provides a vast amount of highly accurate measurements from millions of points that are located in no time at all.

The collected data is used to create everything from very detailed 2D drawings, 3D models and wire-frame meshes to printed dimensions and electronic prints.  The accurate measurements identify potential obstructions within the existing floor plans and infrastructures, allowing for easy reconfiguration. Whether installing unique or common features, scanning will reduce your field modification or re-work time.

Have a greater level of confidence in visualizing and understanding your project with our 3D laser scanning proficiency, surveying expertise and knowledgeable modeling team.

Scanning Simplifies the Data Collection

An accurate understanding of the structure or space for the as-built environment is essential for a successful project. Knowing that, architects, engineers, virtual design coordinators and contractors count on our knowledgeable team of scanning and modeling experts.  Nederveld has the expertise and experience to provide fast and accurate drawings and models in any file format.

Utilizing our 3D Laser Scanning Technology and Services, we are able to gather a vast amount of measurements that provide high-confidence models for design and documentation.  This is used by a variety of industries in many different formats, which can reduce overall project costs and project duration.

Pre-Design and Engineering Data Documentation Services

Capturing everything needed from several positions, our talented modeling designers will blend the field data together in order for you to see the entire space.  Whether you prefer to work with 2D drawings or virtually walk through your entire physical reality in minutes, you can do it while stationed in your office.

3D laser scanning enables advance virtual construction and is an intelligent asset management tool. It provides incidental data beyond your scope of work for those moments of wishing you had measured one more item. Efficiently capturing more data than conventional measuring will save you costly hours of revisits and reworks.

Provide Accurate Starting Points for Everyone with a Single-Source Field Verification

Nederveld is supporting the BIM environment by utilizing its 3-Dimensional Laser Scanning Technology and Services to provide clients with unprecedented speed, accuracy and resolution in field data collection. The laser settings can be controlled in the field, allowing us to tailor the data collection to the desired structure. It quickly generates a dense “cloud” of points that provides high-confidence models for design and documentation.

BIM [Building Information Modeling]

An integrated process for supporting AEC (Architectural, Engineering and Construction) workflow. It creates a platform where coordinated reliable design information is produced in 3D format (a digital prototype), so architects, engineers and contractors can truly understand the design they are trying to accomplish.  Accurate existing condition measurements to incorporate into your BIM project are only done through 3D Laser Scanning.

Accurately Update And Expand Your BIM Model As You Progress

Integrating 3D Laser Scanning into BIM is completely based on a single-source of accurate, comprehensive as-built data/measurements that reduces overall project costs and project duration by:

  • Producing 3D models, cross sections, floorplans, elevations
  • Eliminating operation interruptions at the facility
  • Identifying potential problems (clash detection)
  • Reducing the amount of site visits
  • Eliminating many field errors and corrections
  • Visualizing current building in a simulated environment
  • Allowing for more offsite material prefabrication (usually higher quality at lower cost)

Historic Preservation

Archiving Current Building Conditions for Continuous Monitoring

Archiving current conditions of a historic building is priceless. Building preservation and improvements can be easily accomplished using our laser scanning process to measure difficult dimensions and view proposed renovations from every angle. The higher level of detail and accuracy from the scanning technology will quickly and thoroughly measure and record millions of points. That, along with our innovative processes, provides very accurate, comprehensive 2D floor plans, elevations, 3D modeling or data record for future reference.

Nederveld’s team of surveying professionals are capable of solving even the most complex of surveying and engineering problems with 3D Laser Scanning. Whether you’re looking to document a historical resource or preserve your community, our innovative processes and pioneering use of leading-edge technologies allow us to continually offer our clients results-oriented solutions to meet today’s and future needs.

Combined with our scanning proficiency, surveying expertise and knowledgeable modeling team, high definition scanning makes it possible to achieve the impossible.

Facility & Campus Mapping

Viewing the Big Picture in 3D with Pre-design and Engineering Data Collection Services

Full-facility or campus mapping can be used as an intelligent asset management tool.  It enables advance virtual construction, anything from modeling new equipment within the existing floor plans and infrastructures to easily reconfiguring complex production systems.  It also reduces down time and return site visits by accurately identifying potential obstructions before installation, which leads to a more overall, reliable project schedule.

With Nederveld 3D Laser Scanning, map your entire campus and have all the data combined into one 3D model.  Our deliverable allows you to virtually walk through a campus or facility in minutes while stationed in your office.  In addition to your current need, scanning the full facility provides incidental data beyond your original scope of work . . . costing you nothing to capture, but could be priceless in the future.

Facility Mapping Is Ideal For:

  • Most traditional surveying needs
  • BIM projects
  • MEP environments
  • Site geometry
  • Facility modifications
  • Planning
  • Historic documentation

Unlike traditional surveys where there’s limited use and no incidental data, 3D laser scanning surveys are rich with information.

Laser Scanning is Standard for Measuring


Measuring in HD is simply faster than traditional surveying or measuring methods for new construction, renovation and documentation projects.  With the technology of our laser scanners, we are capable of collecting accurate data points at incredible speeds, which greatly increases productivity, quality and project success.


Laser scanning delivers unparalleled accuracy in field data collection. The high level of detail and better quality results provide a greater level of confidence in understanding your project.  Measuring projects with laser scanning reduces down time, return site visits and construction rework.  This leads to more reliable overall project schedule.


All surface areas, even if in a congested, highly detailed, dangerous or inaccessible location, can be verified and recorded with little or no interruption. This very accurate collected scanned data can minimize/eliminate:

  • Site visits
  • Change orders
  • Installation time
  • Interruptions (causing delays and penalties)


Flexibility is one of the strongest characteristics of 3D Laser Scanning. All settings can be controlled in the field, allowing the operator to tailor the data collection to the project. The scanner software communicates with a number of 3rd party applications, including:

  • AutoCAD
  • MicroStation
  • 3-D Studio Max
  • NavisWorks
  • SolidWorks


The ability to measure structures without the need to physically access them makes 3D Laser Scanning ideal for measuring dangerous or inaccessible areas.
