AsBuilt was contracted to capture the as-is conditions for the installation of a new dust collection system in a wood products manufacturing facility.
AsBuilt utilized 3D scanning to capture the existing conditions of the decade’s old facility.
Point Cloud Development – Prior to scanning and modeling, the facility had no accurate as-built drawings. After scanning, the point cloud was developed and delivered to the designer of the future system.
Precise Duct Routing – The new duct work and equipment was routed by the designers and easily checked for clash with the existing system.
Installation Planning – The contractor was able to route the ducting in 3D and plan the installation with the installation crew.
Ducting Calculations – Once the 3D duct routing was finalized, the engineering team calculated and confirmed accurate transport velocities in the ducting system.
