Skanska Speeds BIM Workflows with Pointfuse As-Built Models

Pointfuse point cloud software is helping Skanska Building undertake complex clash detection during the early stages of construction of a new landmark building in London. Part of the GBP 127 million 80 Fenchurch Street development, Skanska Building used Pointfuse to process laser scanned data to create an ‘as built’ 3D model of surrounding buildings and temporary works for comparison with BIM design models. Using Pointfuse Skanska Building reduced the size of the original point cloud by 99 per cent allowing for faster onward processing of the data. As a result Skanska Building was able to save time and money and develop efficient workflows that could be scaled up for the whole project.
