The use of hand held scanning devices has revolutionised the ability to design without the need for mobilising a team to survey. Data (to 1mm accuracy) can be obtained by scanning in approximately 15 minutes. Files can be emailed to us to start design and deliverable production within minutes.
We have suggested to our clients that they purchase the hand held scanners (approx £4,000) and many assets have taken this up. This has eliminated the costs and schedule implications associated with numerous offshore surveys, helicopter seats and offshore beds, aswell as reducing personnel exposure and unnecessary expensive equipment being mobilised.
