Digital Engineering Digital Engineering (DE) is the process of creating a set of digital data to capture, design, test and manage real-world assets for ongoing use. DE is becoming the yardstick method for developers, project managers, architects and other building and infrastructure professionals to collaborate on projects to engender time and cost savings, while significantly reducing the risk of errors and repetition of data.
Nowhere has the leap in technology to support DE been more prevalent than in surveying. The introduction of laser scanners producing georeferenced point clouds has been a game changer in the collection of accurate data.
The vast data set of a point cloud forms the single point of truth that anchors the entire project and ensures accuracy, repeatability, and interoperability through the course of the works. The vital survey skills to ensure the data is linked to known coordinate systems also guarantees data sets can be used and appended with confidence.
DSP has the capability and experience to extrapolate a survey accurate BIM model from the laser scan point cloud data. You can choose to take advantage of our in-house Level of Detail guide and Uniclass 2015 classification system within our Revit model environment or provide your own template and system for us to dovetail into with the survey model.
We recognise that collaboration is the key to any successful DE undertaking and DSP is ready to work with you to achieve your project goals.
