For large projects, Kahuna is able to document and validate landmark achievements. Laser scanning your project allows you to document with geospatial data and landmarks ensuring your client as to the quality of your product and to fall back on deviations from the design with accurate data and reasons. Scanning throughout the progress of the project allows validation of the construction versus the designs while rapidly communicating changes and addressing issues.

Commercial Construction Applications

  • Verify Foundation Locations and Elevations.
  • Document mechanical and electrical locations before being covered.
  • Check Tolerances and Future Obstructions.
  • Show Progress with Dimensional Data.

Leica’s TruView allows you to share scan data within your office to visualize major achievements and allows multiple clients to tour the project without leaving their home office. Clients are able to get dimensions, identify elevations and points in either real-world coordinates or plant coordinates. Clients can also comment on the designs and share ideas throughout the project. Upon completion of the project, Kahuna suggests rescanning to share the quality of your workmanship.

Scan data can be very large and difficult to work with. Kahuna has processes in place to provide you the information that you need in a usable and workable file size. Manipulating point cloud data is difficult and rapidly becoming its own specialized industry, Kahuna has on-staff programmers to optimize our production and better suit your needs. Kahuna primarily uses AutoCAD but can support a myriad of different formats. Kahuna can work with point cloud data in either Leica Cyclone Format (.imp, .pts, .ptx, .ptg) or Autodesk Recap (.rcp, .rcs).
