Efficiently measure the as built and gather precise site information to verify existing conditions, dimensions and take precise measurements from our 2D plans and 3D models with utmost confidence.
3D models, renders and virtual tours are an impressive, easy-to-understand and immmersive representation of the design, concept or structure and are created from 2D plans and drawings.
Impress stakeholders and attract new clients with engaging architectural photography and video. We capture 360 panoramas, aspect and level views using industry-leading equipment and methods for project sales and marketing.
Efficiently measure the as-built environment with millimetre accuracy.
Laser scanning is an accurate and efficient recording of existing conditions, structures and interior spaces in as-built environment.
AVIAN uses laser scanning technology, geospatial and surveying methods to measure the as-built environment with millimeter accuracy. The benefit of laser scanning includes:
1. Avoids lengthy time onsite and costly revisits due to duplication or transcription errors.
2. A digital reproduction in the form of 3D model or 2D plans are generated from the scan data and is an accurate digital twin of actual site conditions.
3. Take accurate measurements and use them in drafting, designing & producing architectural drawings.

Scan to BIM
Scan to Plan
Scan to Model
Start designing sooner with direct Software Integration
Seamlessly integrate with industry-standard software such as Autodesk Revit, Civil 3D, AutoCAD, Archicad, Solidworks, Microstation, Rhino and Bentley Systems.
Experience immediate integration of scan data for modelling and design applications.
Share and collaborate laser scan data and 3D models with teams, stakeholders and clients via our secure web-based applications.
Measure Complex Structures
Measure large and complex structures with ease.
A wider range of jobs
Architects can bid on more jobs, confident that we can visit the site and capture all the information with efficiency and accuracy.
Confidence in Accuracy
Deliver client obligations with complete confidence in the accuracy of the 3D environment.
Shorter time to payment
With shorter data capture times and a faster start to design, the project timeframe is reduced and payments issued earlier.
No return visits
Be confident that all data is accurately recorded and there are no gaps or errors, so there’s no need for site re-visits.
Laser scanning is much faster than traditional measure up. We capture in half a day what would take multiple days using the traditional approach.

Clear 3D Visualisations
We create 3D virtual tours, architectural renders and 3D architectural visualisations from plans that are an impressive and easy-to-understand representation of the design or the as-built structure.
Design and visualise the concept in 3D space with impressive digital visualisations.
Clearer for the client to imagine and visualise. Many clients struggle to interpret plans and drawings, but a 3D visualisation, walkthrough or augmented reality projection is much more visible, which can enhance the client relationship and the signoff process.
Improve Sales off the Plan
Imaging and video for sales and marketing
For project marketing we capture high-resolution photography and video including high-megapixel cameras to capture panoramas, aspect and level views.
Visualisations such as renders, views, photomontages, 3D walkthroughs and sales videos help to engage the audience and sell a lifestyle before the project is built, this builds client engagement and increases sales off-the-plan.

3D Architectural Visualisation FAQs
Common FAQs about 3D Architectural Visualisation highlight how our services benefit architecture firms.
The costs to laser scan a site depends on a range of factors including, how large is the scan area? Do you need plans and drawings? What level of detail is required for the 3D models? Do you need 3D visualisations or a virtual tour?
Basically, we need to check the job scope and level of detail (LoD) of your project for more accurate cost calculations.
For more info, you can also check out our blog on laser scanning cost guide.
Using 3D Revit models allows for precision in design and installation as we are working with precision measurements from laser scanning. Also we are able to create 2D drawings out of 3D Revit models so you can still obtain drawings with more efficiency and accuracy. Learn more about how Architecture use 3D models in our article here.
We create all types of plans and drawings- Floor plans, Reflected Ceiling plans and views-Elevation, Section. Basically everything from construction and shop drawings to updated as-built, BIM and asset management models.
Feel free to check out this case study wherein our team conducted a laser scan of a commercial warehouse to understand more about laser scanning.
It usually takes us about 1 day onsite and 1-2 weeks to generate an accurate 3D model the building.
However, the time frame depends on the size and scale of your project. Our team usually conducts an initial consultation to understand the job scope and client requirements. You can book a free consultation with us easily via phone to the website here.
At Avian, we employ a comprehensive and strict quality management process:
- Our team of AEC professionals and land surveyors is experienced in surveying and laser scanning and understands the common pitfalls in this type of work.
- Using reliable and industry-leading scanning and surveying equipment and workflows.
- Quality control gateways of all data at key stages: acquisition, pre and post-processing and bespoke client reporting.
