A major power provider upgraded their wastewater piping at a power plant and needed to document the as-built conditions for their Management of Change process. The challenge was to get precise drawings of the as-built piping to truly represent the field conditions.
AsBuilt utilized laser scanning to capture all piping and structural details after a pipe replacement project was complete. The 3D scans and 3D modeling were used to confirm the as built model matched the as designed drawings. Redlines were provided to the engineering company for as-built revisions to be updated in the final drawing package. No engineers were required to visit the site to confirm this information, which was a great cost savings for the engineering firm.
MOC Documented Change – After the final installation, AsBuilt sent one scan tech with one scanner to capture the as-built conditions. This was a huge cost savings to the engineering firm since an engineer was not required onsite after installation.
Faster than Traditional Drawing Review – Traditionally, the as designed drawings would need to be confirmed with the as-built conditions in the field. Using 3D scanning there is no need to make a field visit to take measurements and mark up drawings.
Accessible for Future Reference – The 3D scan data and modeling is simple to store, easy to access, and decipher for future projects in the project area.
More Cost Effective – In the project world, everyone wants more for less. 3D scanning and modeling for MOC delivers more for much less than traditional means.
