Top-of-the-line technology and expert advice can make all the difference in today’s industries. The old adage warning to measure twice and cut once for any building project gets an update with the precision measurements and imaging available now. Whether you’re retrofitting an existing building with a new system or implementing a system into a new construction project, ensure the project is planned out accurately by taking advantage of Ferguson’s 3D scanning services.

How do 3D scans work?
Our experts come to your site or building to take precise 3D scans of your physical spaces, providing you with virtual assets that will inform your future projects. Throughout this simple, three-step, mobile 3D scanning process, you’ll have access to our associates to meet every detail and answer your site-specific questions, but it’s always best to start with the basics.
One of our expert associates comes to your site to complete a scan of the space using Faro 3D laser scanning technology. This process involves using horizontal and vertical ranged lasers to measure the distance between the scanner and any and all objects in the room, providing far more specific and exact information than a simple photo. The size of the building will help determine how long the scanning process takes, but it can be anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days.
After the scan is complete, you’ll receive a fully registered and processed digital copy of your 3D scan. This digital rendering of your space makes it easy to visualize your planned building systems as they would appear within the building conditions, even when working around pipework or other permanent physical objects.
Use your fully registered and processed point cloud to model your project accurately. Take advantage of our expert Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) team’s services to provide a full suite of solutions, including modeling and detailing, pipe fabrication, diagnostics and project management.
