BIM / 3D Modelling

At Topo M Surveys we understand that our laser scanning surveys need to provide an integrated overview of existing site and building arrangements that will facilitate the wider usage of our 3D models by a multi-disciplinary team. Being able to translate these into different software programs and across platforms means that our clients can fully extract maximum value from our surveys. Using this approach the 3D models produced by Topo M Surveys for architectural and engineering design are often also used for marketing, publicity, facilities management as well as a multitude of other applications.

Building information modelling (BIM) is a process supported by various tools, technologies and contracts involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places.

Building information models (BIMs) are computer files (often but not always in proprietary formats and containing proprietary data) which can be extracted, exchanged or networked to support decision-making regarding a built asset.

BIM software is used by individuals, businesses and government agencies who plan, design, construct, operate and maintain buildings and diverse physical infrastructures, such as water, refuse, electricity, gas, communication utilities, roads, railways, bridges, ports and tunnels.
