Laser Scanning in Newcastle, Sydney & Western NSW

de Witt Consulting has been providing Laser Scanning Services in Newcastle, Sydney and Western NSW for the past 8 years. Laser Scanning Technology provides a cost-effective survey solution where a high level of accurate detail is required for design and engineering applications, monitoring and dilapidation surveys and access constrained sites.

The Laser Scanner has also been utilised on projects to create safe working for personnel where conventional techniques cannot be undertaken safely or other controls are difficult to obtain.

A Laser Scanner collects hundreds of thousands of closely spaced surface geometry measurements (points) to high accuracy in just minutes. These surface points combine to form a ‘point cloud’ which when displayed on a computer screen or cad software/viewers etc. forms a dense 3D bitmap image of the surveyed area. The point cloud can be viewed and navigated much like a 3D model, however each of these scanned points is not simply a pixel, it has true site X, Y and Z coordinates which can be interrogated.

Laser Scanning can decrease engineering costs, allow reverse engineering, shorten programs, generate ‘’as-built’’ documentation ideal for asset management and provide a whole new perspective on projects.

Laser Scanning also offers an ideal input for designing modifications to existing sites, structures or facilities.

The data can be delivered as point cloud data or as modelled 3D surfaces and shapes. As-built models can be produced from the point cloud data providing the client with an intelligent virtual 3D environment that accommodates the basis for future planning and maintenance. Among other features our point cloud/scan software can simulate ‘’clash detection’’ which ensures component conflicts can be avoided during design, colour map deformation on structures and model point clouds into 3D surfaces. Our laser scanner can also capture high definition images that can be overlaid onto the point cloud. This simulates an environment with real-world colours ideal for streetscapes where a real-world representation is needed.

Ulan West

de Witt Consulting was engaged on this project in the early stages of the Stage 2 Construction of The Ulan West Project to provide Laser Scanning Services to Downer Engineering to capture existing structural elements that were to be tied [...]

West Wallsend Substation

For specialist survey UGL came to de Witt Consulting to undertake surveys of the existing towers on site and generate working drawings to allow the off site prefabrication of gantry sections to fit between the existing towers, specifically utilising existing [...]

Kerrabee Tunnel

In preparation for stages 2 and 3 of the remediation, de Witt’s surveying team undertook a laser scan survey of the entire 780 metre length of the tunnel including coordinating the point cloud data from the scans and the design [...]
