History Captured

Through a New Lens

Historical buildings are quite easily the best application for our 3D laser scanning and Revit modeling capabilities. You know this already, old buildings have seen a lot over the years and tend to bare few typical elements throughout. Particularly in an adaptive re-use case, intense 3D laser scanning services capture all finite to large scale anomalies, which can then be translated to relevant and useful information in 2D or 3D AutoCAD or Revit.

Our team is adept at decoding these particularly complex historical buildings. It takes way more than an expensive 3D laser scanner and a Revit license to extract and deliver useful information from a century old building. We use Architectural IQ to make hundreds of decisions throughout the drafting and modeling process, all intent on delivering the most meaningful information in the right form for a diverse consultant team.

The Value of a Digital 3D Record

When we laser scan a building, the data is kept indefinitely and can be resurrected. Two years after we delivered pre and post demolition Revit and AutoCAD as-built documentation for a historic hotel project in Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA), the Developer needed to recreate important historical details damaged during the demolition phase. With one phone call, our team identified the key areas that required documentation and fully scoped the project. The pre-demolition scan data perfectly preserved all key areas with incredible detail. Our resulting as-built documentation enabled the Architect to achieve results otherwise impossible:

How We Do It

We will work with you to understand your project requirements and provide a custom fit laser scanning and as-built documentation solution. Once we are green lighted, the most experienced technicians in the business are mobilized and execute the field work as expeditiously as possible.

We deploy the latest in Reality Capture solutions, primarily through 3D laser scanning, to capture environments from a single room to buildings that encompass entire city blocks, all with immense accuracy and detail. Through our understanding of where you are trying to go, we work with you to determine what level of detail and accuracy you require from the onset.

The result of 3D scanning is a single consolidated set of points called a Point Cloud. This point cloud typically contains far more data and information than is needed and can be tough for designers and engineer to interpret on their own. This is where the Spatial Acuity difference lies. We take it one step further and convert it into highly usable and purpose built CAD or Revit as-built documentation.

Results in Action

Let our work speak for itself. Here are a few projects we provided laser scanning and as-built services for:

Our Proposition

Service at Every Step

We have a simple view here – do what we say we are going to do. Deliver with excellence and communicate with our client through every step from laser scanning to as-built creation.


We get real with you on accuracy, no over baked promises here. Yes, we can get absurdly accurate with your as-built documentation, but it doesn’t always make sense. We’ll consult with you on what’s real, and what’s a pie in the sky.


We are committed to landing our clients usable information. Laser Scanning, drones, and point clouds are cool, but don’t get stuck with something that isn’t worth the bytes on your hard drive. If you aren’t sure how to get the most out of our data, we show you how one on one and have unique systems that don’t require proprietary or expensive software.

Designer IQ

Our CAD and Revit as-built solutions are built with intelligence and usability in mind. You don’t care about your wall at 90.07 degrees, that’s a headache. We make judgment calls with intelligence, modeling like real humans as an extension of your studio.


Nothing is more important than honoring our commitment to mastery well after your project is completed. Go ahead and call us 6 months after we delivered. Not only will we answer the phone, but we will move lightning fast to support you.
