Laser Scanner Hire + Operator

Assuming you have identified the need for a point cloud survey, you will need the tools to carry out the work. At SolidPoint we offer laser scanner hire with a simple difference to our competitors, we provide a competent surveyor to operate it. From as little as £300 you can instruct us to attend a site on your behalf to collect the laser scan data you require. If you don't have the capacity or license to register the data to a working well aligned point cloud we can do this for you too. In fact we have come up with some simple fixed fee pricing that will enable you to get the point cloud you need for your project, to the accuracy you need with very little fuss:

(All Prices are subject to VAT if applicable)

3 Hours on site Laser Scanning + Operator

£300*

This will get you 3 hours on site for our operator, in that time they can can collect roughly 30 - 35 major scans along with the required intermittent scans needed for accurate alignment. This would easily be enough to survey a large 5-6 bedroom property or 2 small neighbouring 3 bedroom properties. The output will be raw scan files which will likely require registration for design analysis. *Travel costs will be in addition to this price.

6 Hours on site Laser Scanning + Operator

£550*

This will get you 6 hours on site for our operator, in that time they can can collect roughly 60-70 major scans along with the required scans needed for accurate alignment. This would easily be enough to survey a small commercial office building, series of street elevations for Rights to Light or open plan library or warehouse. The output will be raw scan files which will likely require registration for design analysis. *Travel costs will be in addition to this price.

Optional Extras:

There are a number of extras which can either improve the output to aid in design use, or increase the accuracy where more precision in positioning is required:

Scan Registration

£125

If you do not own a license for scan registration software and require an accurate well aligned point cloud then you will need this service! For just £125 to register 3 hours worth of scan data you'll get a fully aligned point cloud that can be used in most BIM applications, we will also provide a fully functional recap project, which will allow you to analyse your scan data to take measurements or take a real view tour from the scanned positions in a 360 degree panoramic style. You can even export smaller portions of the data set yourself to enable faster workflows in given areas of your project.

GPS Positioning

£200

For larger projects or areas of flood risk it will likely be the case that you require accurate GPS positioning to a local or global coordinate system. We use top of the range GPS positioning equipment that enables us to accurately position our point cloud data to a fine tolerance in real world coordinates.

Survey Control

£400

Sometimes it is essential that projects are positioned based on permanent survey control stations. If survey control has already been established or you need stations to work from in future, then you will require this option. We also set up targets in key core areas to help prove alignment accuracy to existing control while also ensuring that the scanned points match existing information that has been collected on the same survey control. This can be advantageous when checking construction against as-built models or drawings.

Additional Operator

£200

Sometimes for Health and Safety reasons it is essential that at least 2 operators work together on site, especially on construction or demolition sites where there are safety concerns or risk of injury. All of our operators have a valid CSCS card which is correct for the type of work they carry out. Having an additional operator will also increase the number of scans that can be collected by around 10% as some simple tasks can be shared.

Full Colour Scanning

Free

If you require full colour laser scanning for either Building records or visualisation then it will be essential to request this. It doesn't cost any extra but will reduce the number of scans that can be collected in a given time frame. To collect colour data it takes approximately 3.5 minutes per scan position in addition to the laser scanning time required. Although it negatively effects efficiency it can bring great value to the project in terms of easy of design analysis as seeing scan data in colour is on par with any 360 degree panoramic capture, and is a great way to show off to your end clients.

360 degree video

£150

New technology is great. thanks to recent advancements we can now offer 360 degree video tours of the properties to accompany our laser scan data. This will bring added benefits in terms of additional media to help analyse the current building state, and will also improve visualisation and presentation, putting you another step in front of your competitors. Youtube and facebook along with other social media now support these videos so can greatly aid in marketing and project awareness.

Existing BIM ready Revit Modelling

Contact for Pricing

We probably don't need to mention this as it dominates the rest of our website, but just in case this is our speciality! Revit modelling is extremely difficult to learn especially when it comes to creating existing phases to a specified level of detail, any experienced Revit user will tell you how difficult it is to create fully parametric intelligent content that needs to accurately match existing elements to a given tolerance. It isn't easy! So why not remove this laborious task and hit the ground running with a BIM Ready Revit model. We create models of projects based both locally and internationally that are accurately aligned to point cloud data. We can work to any required level of detail far surpassing any countries current regulations, and can adopt the clients needs and requirements within the Revit Project we create. Unfortunately this is one thing we can't put a generic fixed price to, as every project has different requirements and time scales involved.

Hopefully this has given you a bit of a an idea of how much to expect to pay for the surveying services we offer, If you haven't already clicked one of the enquire buttons, please feel free to contact us for exact pricing for your project. Or call us on 01332 898350 for more information.
