Coastal Construction Captured in 3D
3D technology has extended its support to the coastal construction site. The collaboration in 3D can create a 3D mapping of the topographic survey and the as-built models of the facilities for inspecting a projected jetty along with the reclamation work of the new port.
The topographic survey with 3D can encompass an area of few hectares, with areas inside the water. Expertise is required for collecting data in the hard-to-reach areas. The key challenge involved in scanning the whole part is selecting the scanning positions in a complex set-up with significant traffic and where the turbulences from the ongoing construction could compromise the firmness essential for accurate scanning.
3D BIM Laser Scanning Delivering Accuracy from an Elevated Location
To alleviate the problems of working in a disruptive, heavy traffic environment, the scans can be conducted from an elevated location over the internal road. Working from an elevated position over the site required a scanner for delivering a high level of accuracy over a long measurable range. 3D BIM Laser Scanning can deliver an accuracy up to 3mm for encompassing the complete range with confidence & precision.
Though the laser scanner can be used for capturing the data over the bridge as well as under the bridge, specially modified equipment, like custom-made cranes can be used for installing the Laser Scanners to capture meticulous data in the complex & inaccessible areas, such as the liquid tanks, pipeline systems, bridges, and marine loading arms.
3D Provides Significant Economic Benefits to Coastal Region
3D promises to deliver substantial economic benefits for the region, with the construction project estimated to include numerous workers during the construction. Once accomplished, the port can be projected to contribute to the state budget to ensure that the port can be fully operational.
The high-speed data capture with the equipment considerably reduces the survey time. The topographic investigation of revetment usually takes around 12 hours with a survey grid of 20m per setup. While it can be reduced to 3 hours, the scanner helps to accelerate the process lessening operational risk and the number of employees required for the work.
Enhancing Association amongst Site & Data Analysis Office
To scan the port, thousands of points need to be amalgamated for combining the data from diverse devices, like stations and laser scanners involving a complex and time-consuming process. The seamless integration of a laser scanning equipment and a software solution meant that the data could easily be distributed between the off-site team managing the data and the field team.
Hence, fast data transfer is an important facet of tropical countries. The changing weather conditions demand quick data transfer between the field and office teams to authenticate data and avoid data loss. The speed & accuracy of capturing field data facilitates in avoiding delays in office processing as the software helps to check the points every time. With Real-Time Data Sharing & Processing Module, data can easily be transferred between the field and the office within a few minutes.
3D BIM & Point Cloud Go Hand-in-hand for Delivering Efficiency
The outcome map provides an accurate representation of creating a 3D model and the Virtual Reality system. Using a scanner, the model can be refined with BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology for providing high levels of accuracy and visibility.
By gathering point cloud data at different times and using Point Cloud & 3D Modeling for Revit for converting into as-built drawings, the margin for settlement or displacement of the pipe racks can be projected with the greatest precision.
As-Built Drawings & BIM Supporting Facilities Management
The as-built drawings and Building Information Modeling support the Facilities Management facet of the port providing an allusion for the inspection report & enabling the planning and modeling of the future development and renovations of the port using the digital model.
BIM technology also helps to significantly reduce the site visits for future maintenance and protect the operations of the port for several decades.
