Long Range Laser Scanning & Building Information Modeling (BIM) Help Safely Move Massive Equipment into Fortune 100 Energy Facility

Using long range laser scanning, 3 software platforms and Building Information Modeling (BIM), a team of our engineers at 3D Engineering Solutions created a clash detection simulation that highlighted interferences preventing replacement turbines from entering a Fortune 100 coal-fired power plant. After our team calculated interferences, workers were able to cut away concrete from a plant door and shift two sections of high-power conduits measuring 2-feet in diameter. Riggers then moved in massive turbines, with only 4-inches of clearance on either side of the turbine crate.
