Multiple Business Models

Scan to BIM is used to generate an accurate digital site representation. We capture detailed information about an element through laser scanning to facilitate accurate modeling, coordination, and quantity take-offs for existing and new structures.


Benefits :

  • Safe, fast, and efficient.
  • Accurate 2D documentation & 3D model creation.
  • Seamless data sharing within a collaborative environment.
  • Interference/clearance detection between geometry and point cloud.
  • Survey information is obtained quicker than traditional means.



Our Laser Scanning services come in handy for the following:

  • Renovations and retrofits.
  • Construction planning & progress monitoring.
  • Virtual inspections.
  • As-built models for facilities management.
  • Quality review of building elements.
  • Measuring variations with design models & check tolerance levels.

Services for Scan to BIM

  • Pinnacle is the global leader in offering Scan to BIM services. 3D scanning facilitates different stages of construction, like 3D model creation, visualization, animation, rendering, and quality inspection.
  • AEC professionals and firms require our Point Cloud to BIM Service for preparing 3D models of Architectural, Structural, and MEPF (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection) elements.
  • We capture detailed information about an element’s physical space to enable precise and accurate modeling, coordination, and quantity take-offs.

  • Accurate 3D model creation of individual trades for renovation and extension work from scan data ensures excellent reliability and quality assurance.
  • During renovations, a scan of the BIM Model acts as a solid base for further design work.
  • As-Built Drawing Preparation from Point Cloud for Plan, Elevation & Section Sheet for Architectural, Structural & MEP trades.
  • Improved transparency and streamlined communication with 3D visualization for quick decision-making during the renovation and extension phase.
  • Minimal RFI’s, work stoppage, and reworks through validation of accuracy and completeness of 3D Models from scan data.

  • Model Review followed by checking of project standards.
  • Conformance with items in the Standard checklist for 3D Model QA/QC.
  • Preparation of sectional views in Revit for checking deviations.
  • Clash detection and coordination among trades.

  • 3D BIM Model Creation @ LOD 400 Level for Renovation & Extension – 3D Models are generated using BIM, based on point cloud scan data to improve transparency and streamline communication for quick decision-making during the As-Built Phase.
  • As-Built Drawing Preparation for Plan, Elevation & Section Sheets – As-Built Drawing Preparation from 3D BIM Model is a comprehensive reference tool facilitating future project planning, including extension, renovation & redevelopment from point cloud data.
  • Construction Scheduling using 4D BIM for renovation and extension work – Project construction schedule/sequencing is linked to the BIM model from point cloud scanned data. Users can click on a building object in the 4D visual environment and view its associated task highlighted in the Gantt chart or vice versa.
  • Facility Management / COBie data for individual elements – Pinnacle enables project stakeholders to organize approved electronic submittals from point cloud scanned data during renovation and extension through facility management. The BIM files, drawings, and PDFs are organized to be easily accessed through secure server directories. BIM engineers follow COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) format for managing facility assets.
