Laser scanning is an efficient and cost-effective method of gathering existing conditions. Laser scanning can rapidly gather site information for retrofit and expansion information, operations training and virtual tours with consultants.

  • Scan your treatment facility for accurate as-built information when planning an expansion or retrofit project.
  • Solidify tie-in locations for mechanical design changes and visually see potential obstruction locations (valve operators), access ways, control panels, junction box locations and other potential obstructions while knowing exactly where they are located.
  • Model on top of the point cloud to generate accurate isometric drawings for mechanical design.
  • Scan your facility for operations training and support.

Senior operators can virtually direct other operators through ortho-rectified photography and hot-linked drawings. Kahuna is able to scan your facility for digital tours and condition analysis thus, allowing consultants to visualize sampling locations and plant layout and design without ever stepping on the facility.

Laser scan data can be gathered both inside and outside the buildings with the data sets being combined. If data is need from the interior of vessels and tanks, scanning can be performed while maintenance is being performed as laser scan data will reflect off the surface of water.

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).
